The need for intra- and intersectoral cooperation in healthcare is growing steadily. In some cases, legislators and regulatory authorities even demand such cooperation. Nevertheless, the legal possibilities for such cooperation are narrow. The strict separation of sectors prescribed by law must be observed, as must the prohibition of assignment for remuneration, which is now even punishable under §§ 299a/b of the Criminal Code.
Since the interests and needs of those willing to cooperate are diverse, there is no one-size-fits-all solution that can be applied to all intended – or long-standing – co-operations. Our individual and careful advice therefore always keeps the legal boundaries in mind. At the same time, however, our many years of experience enable us to make the best possible use of existing leeway in your interests.
We design co-operations between hospitals and established service providers, i.e. physicians and MVZs, as well as co-operations between hospitals and between hospitals and third-party institutions or other service providers.
