The network was founded in October 2013 at the European Business School in Rheingau, Germany, and currently comprises more than 50 active partners and over 350 associated experts and friends across the globe.Today we are one of the largest healthcare consulting practices in German-speaking Europe.
What unites us is our conviction that in the long run health systems will work only when the focus shifts to the patient with his needs. With our concentrated expertise and energy, we want to play a part in the change necessary across the healthcare industry. To this end we bring together the relevant experts in order to jointly look for new approaches and pragmatic paths to change.
Healthcare Shapers are not only extremely competent in their areas of expertise (all have many years of professional expertise and enjoy an excellent reputation in their work), but also characterized by shared values: independence, honesty, an open mind for new ideas, as well as respect, team spirit and reliability. We think entrepreneurially and act in a pragmatic and results-oriented manner. We are enthusiastic about our work. Professionalism and quality in what we do distinguish us.
Our overriding aim is to create added value: for projects we support, for the partners and clients with whom we jointly deliver projects, and for every individual who gets involved in jointly developing themes. Of course we also want to generate additional business through our work.
In the long term — besides entrepreneurial activity, the exchange of ideas and the related further development of each of our members — we would also like to initiate non-profit projects that would not be possible without our commitment.

The network of the Healthcare Shapers spans a wide range of partners with deep and profound expertise in healthcare — just as wide as the entire healthcare ecosystem. Aiming to portrait this breadth, we started a series of interviews. All in German language.
Christian Milaster, an expert on telemedicine who worked for 17 years in the US, some of those at the Mayo Clinic, speaks about digitization and compares healthcare in the US and in Germany. https://vimeo.com/168482847
Dr. Michael Gerards, a true expert on innovation processes, has co-founded a company dealing with virtual reality. Learn from him about visual reality applications in healthcare https://vimeo.com/170261697
Our gatherings on a regional level are informal. We get together for drinks and a bite to eat (everybody picks up their own bill). We network, share experience, deepen our relationships. In such easy-going atmoshpere, some of our best ideas emerged. This is one way how we jointly create value for each other. And it’s fun, too!
On March 4-5, 2016, 20 partners and friends of the Healthcare Shapers met for the annual meeting. The event took place in a highly inspiring location, Schloss Freudenberg in Wiesbaden, Germany.

All participants appreciated the opportunity to deepen the network and get to know each other both from a content and a personal perspective. Various initiatives have been kicked off, e.g. consulting iwth a focus on digitalization, helping to foster start-up mentality in innovation processes, or accelerating pharma brand activities.
The 2017 annual meeting will take place on February 17/18 somewhere around Frankfurt.

Many executives in pharma and healthcare are overburdened when asked about digitalization, disruption and digital transformation. There is a lack of understanding on the one hand and an overflow of information on the other hand. Agencies, vendors, start-ups as well as all large consultancies make all kind of appealing promises but often executives don’t dare to say they have no clue about what the others are talking. And immediately, trust is fading. Are they just trying to sell or will they really help?
As Healthcare Shapers, we help you navigate in these times of uncertainty. We broker a dialogue between you and the vendors. For this, we leverage the vast experience of our international network of independent experts, consultants and service providers. We will collaborate with you to find out what is really important for you. We help you to set realistic goals and to lay out a plan that will work for you. We translate your needs into a language of those who only speak technology. And we connect you to those making it happen.

Ensuring a continuous flow of income is difficult for self-employed consultants. Either one is deeply buried in a project and has no time to keep up with own marketing or one has just completed a project but then it takes too long to nurture a client relationship until the next contract gets signed. Hence, maintaining continuous business development is a similar challenge for self-employed professionals like losing weight is for obese people.
In order to overcome that dilemma, seven of our Healthcare Shapers embarked on a Mastermind Group to improve their own marketing efforts. The idea of the Mastermind Group stems from Napoleon Hill, author of the famous book Think And Grow Rich.
After our successful pilot phase, the team is now working their issues in bi-weekly teleconferences, thus leveraging group genius to coach each other, create new ideas, and help to focus on pragmatic implementation.
