The healthcare system in Switzerland is facing major challenges, which can only be overcome through coordinated efforts by governments, healthcare providers, insurance companies and other stakeholders. To ensure that the necessary transformation is successful, many market participants are adapting their business models through digitalization, innovations and M&A transactions.

Challenges & Focus

Healthcare System

The Swiss healthcare system, known as one of the best but also the most expensive in the world, is facing complex challenges. The main problem is the steadily rising costs of healthcare services and insurance, which is weighing on financial sustainability. This increase in costs is further aggravated by the aging of the population and the increase in chronic diseases, as older people require more intensive and specialized medical care. The demographic shift is putting pressure on the system both financially and in terms of personnel (keyword: the need for skilled workers). Sustainable healthcare can only be ensured through efficient financial management.

Patient Centricity

The trend towards patient centricity is being driven by progressive digitalization in the healthcare sector. It follows an individualized approach that uses prevention, personalization and convergence with consumer goods. Technological innovations enable simplified interaction between service providers and patients and offer new options for diagnosis and care. The aim is to improve patient safety, create a positive patient experience and reduce costs at the same time.


The introduction of e-health in the healthcare sector is bringing significant changes. Key elements such as electronic patient records, artificial intelligence, robotics and sensor technology are revolutionizing patient care. Digital tools and services, virtual care, and automation play a crucial role by increasing efficiency and improving the quality of healthcare services. The balance between technological innovation and regulatory compliance is crucial for the success of e-health.
