HEALTH! is a responsibility of society as a whole – according to futurologist Leo A. Nefiodow, health is becoming a driving force for the economy. indicators suggest that the sixth long cycle – „The Sixth Kondratieff“ – will be health in a holistic sense – physical, mental, spiritual, envi- ronmental & social – „this new health“ will be the bearer of a long period of prosperity in the 21st century and is powered by the new molecular and digital technologies in medicine:

The driving force of The Health Captains Think-Tank and Network since 2003 is therefore to navigate this „digital-molecular transformation of medicine“ towards value-based 360º NEXT GENERATION HEALTHCARE.

The German Health Industry Club (cdgw) has established itself as a strong and recognized forum for the German healthcare industry. It was founded in 2007. As an attractive and top-class business club, it offers its members a confidential platform for getting to know each other and for professional exchange across sector boundaries.

Network for managers

The German Health Industry Club (cdgw) sees itself as a network for executives of the health industry, which is growing ever closer together. The cdgw also wants to hear the concerns of the healthcare industry with a strong voice.

The club currently has more than 90 clinics, clinic groups and companies with a total of around 160 decision-makers. The club is non-partisan and independent. Its activities are financed exclusively from the membership fees.

Attractive club life

Club life is cultivated with five different events each year. These include a specialist workshop, a festive gala, a weekend of seminars with (spouse) partners, the competition and the awarding of the prestigious Future Prize in Healthcare Management, as well as the traditional cooperation event with Georg Thieme Verlag, which publishes the leading health management magazine kma.
