German minister's promises boost device industry

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

As the German government gears up to defend its record at the next general election, health minister Ulla Schmidt is striving to put healthcare at the forefront of the political agenda.

Given that the SPD has lost ground in the election race recently, the industry is wondering if her promise of actions comes too late.
