Questions from TOP Consulting to GÖK Consulting GmbH

Date: June 24, 2022Messages

  1. You advise customers on KHZG. Where are the greatest challenges in digitization, where is the need for more action?

Hospitals in Germany are often still a long way from digital processes, and some believe that they apply for funding and then use the money to buy software, which they then call digitization. But it is much more about digital transformation based on a digital strategy derived from the corporate strategy, about new, better and higher-performing processes that need to be restructured across occupational groups and departments. Furthermore, the interaction of different players must be rethought across sectors. It is not for nothing that the KHZG has strongly emphasized the topic of “interoperability” in its various funding acts. All this leads to the fact that hospitals have to reposition themselves, so to speak, and in doing so GÖK supports its customers on the basis of a long-term joint implementation approach with competent teams on site, from process redesign and preparation of the IT introduction to subsidy management, agile project management and support of a cultural change process.

2. How is your business doing since 2020-21/Corona? Have there been any changes in consulting focus for GÖK? If so, what was it about and what does it mean for GÖK’s future?

Corona has advanced digitization and is thus, alongside KHZG, a “tailwind” in the digital transformation of the healthcare sector. This consulting focus has therefore been greatly expanded by us alongside the still important topics of strategy and medical strategy, implementation of cross-sector healthcare concepts, purchasing and logistics, and process and project management in general. We are in a growing market and are gearing up for it. Finding and retaining good employees who are eager to get involved in the consultant life with plenty of time on site with customers to effectively move things forward is an important challenge for us in order to continue to grow ourselves as well

Take home messages throughout are:

Digital transformation needs more awareness among hospital management and a deep commitment to overarching, optimized processes.

Project management and participative change management are crucial. IT security is a core issue, especially against the backdrop of interoperability.

With the support of Managermagazin and under the patronage of former German President, Christian, the best medium-sized business consultants are selected each year. GÖK competes in the second size category of the competition and was able to qualify for the eighth time in a row.

“We came very close to the top 3 places this year, which shows we are on the right track,” adds Dipl.-Ing. Ulrich Pieper. “Our positioning as an industry specialist and the quasi-family structure of our company gives us many advantages, including in competition with the large consulting firms, which leads to the fact that some of the so-called Big Five have entered into cooperations with us.” Ulrich Pieper is also the managing partner of GÖK Consulting GmbH.

As recently as 2020, GÖK was named the best consulting firm in the healthcare segment by Wirtschaftswoche.

Worldwide, more than a million companies of various sizes and from various industries are certified according to DIN ISO 9001, but in the consulting industry we are surprisingly the exception.

In addition to providing an up-to-date data base on resource consumption in hospitals, this forum addresses how reduction targets and budgetary incentives encourage entrepreneurial solutions and what healthcare can learn from grassroots movements like Fridays for Future.

Dr. Stefan Drauschke, Managing Director of GÖK Consulting GmbH and of NextHealth GmbH will participate in the Digital Forum “Green Health Care – the impact of climate change on health care systems”, which will take place during the BMC Congress 2022.
