Vertical integration: Beauty or Beast?
Wolf Kupatt, CEO, Amedes
Unusually, big diagnostic lab group amedes also runs a national network of specialist outpatient doctor practices across Germany in areas such as gynaecology, fertility, diabetes and metabolic medicine. The beauty of such vertical integration is that amedes can offer more holistic treatment and brings together specialist doctors with formidable skills sets with equally specialist diagnostics. The beast is that the model adds considerable complexity and highlights potential conflicts of interest that exist in most integrated healthcare models.
