Fachpanel I

Trotz Pandemie – wir leben länger und gesünder als vor 10, 50 oder 100 Jahren. Der allgemeine Wohlstand und der Fortschritt in der Medizin erhöhen die Lebensqualität bis ins hohe Alter. Es liegt in der Natur des Menschen, für sich die bestmögliche Gesundheitsversorgung zu fordern. Das Schweizer Gesundheitswesen zählt denn auch bereits zu den teuersten der Welt, wobei die Krankenkassenprämien jedes Jahr auch noch zulegen. Laut dem Bundesamt für Statistik zahlten im Jahr 2016 37,2% aller Privathaushalte der Schweiz mehr für die Krankenkasse als für ihre Steuern – 2006 betrug der Anteil noch 30,1%. Wachsende Ansprüche stehen Fragen der Machbarkeit gegenüber. Wo sind die Grenzen des Wohlfahrtsstaates? Und welche Prioritäten sind zu setzen, um die Zukunftsfähigkeit der Sozialsysteme gewährleisten zu können?

Das diesjährige Wirtschaftspodium findet für einmal online statt in Form von zwei Fachpanels, die am 6. Und 8. April stattfinden. Das erste Panel stellt das Thema Gesundheitswesen ins Zentrum. Gesundheitsökonom Stefan Felder, Rechtsanwältin Ursina Pally Hofmann und Mediziner Thomas D. Szucs diskutieren über das Spannungsfeld zwischen Ethik und Bezahlbarkeit. Moderiert wird die Diskussion von Prof. em. Peter Zweifel.

Als Anreicherung der Debatte werden pointierte Aussagen von Politikerinnen und Politiker in die Panels einfliessen.

Die Zuschauer des live Broadcasts haben die Möglichkeit, im Anschluss an die Diskussion Fragen zu stellen.

Aufgrund der aktuellen Lage wird das diesjährige Podium online durchgeführt. Weitere Informationen erfolgen zu gegebener Zeit.
