Dear readers,

Digitization has arrived in the healthcare sector and will play a decisive role in the company’s future success. For integrated healthcare solutions, new technologies will be a key factor when dealing with future challenges. For this reason, Arvato concerned itself early on with how digitization influences processes and it continues to develop innovative solutions based on these insights. 

In 2001, the energy company Enron triggered one of the biggest accounting scandals in U.S. history, resulting in the SOX guidelines. In the 2016 business year, Arvato was audited using these guidelines for the first time. Our clients benefit greatly from this new development because the report generated from them simplifies annual financial statements, reduces audit expenses significantly and thus saves on resources. You can find more information about this topic and all the others in this issue of healthcare news.

Happy reading!
