Executive toolbox

The Austrian healthcare system is characterized by a high degree of complexity and fragmentation. 

The intramural and extramural sectors are financed in different ways, which means that the responsibilities and decision-making powers are assigned to different stakeholders. In addition to the federal level, stakeholders are also found at the federal state level. The health system is planned and controlled by different committees at different levels.

In some cases, the interrelationships and structures pose a challenge even for experienced healthcare experts. This makes it all the more difficult for managers coming to Austria and dealing with the Austrian healthcare system for the first time.

However, an understanding of the system and knowledge of the stakeholders are basic prerequisites for success.

The executive toolbox that we have developed with Talentor  provides a helpful resource here. It enables life science executives to:

  • understand important interrelationships in the Austrian healthcare system,

  • to critically question processes and

  • Set priorities correctly in their own activities.


This allows the managers to act effectively, efficiently and successfully in the Austrian healthcare market right from the start - both inside and outside the company.
