On 2 June 2022 Partner Dr Felix Siebler and Senior Associate Annabelle Forster hosted a webinar on ‘Digitisation measures post Hospital Future Act’.
In 2021, hospital operators in Germany submitted around 6,300 applications for grants to finance digitisation measures under the Hospital Future Act. The first grant notifications have now been issued. This means that the conceptual design and preparation of the procurement projects is due now at the latest in order to ensure a legally compliant procedure and not to risk the reclaiming of grants. In addition, a professionally prepared and executed procurement procedure is also of great importance because suppliers, manufacturers and service providers only participate in market-specific and promising tenders due to the enormous demand.
In this webinar, we inform you about the right steps to take in preparing and launching selection and award procedures. Based on current case law, practical issues such as the admissibility of product specifications, the choice of the right type of procedure and the right tactics for negotiations with bidders were presented.
Please note that the webinar is in German. If you have any questions on the topic, please reach out to our speakers.
