In the USA think tanks are already a powerful force for influencing healthcare policy and are an established component of the range of available decision-making aids. Examples include the Heritage Foundation, which is reputed to have exercised a significant influence on the reforms of the US Healthcare system known as Obama Care.
In Germany it was only in the 1960s and 1970s that a practically based organization was set up, and the aspects that it dealt with included questions about the healthcare system.
Recent years have seen the emergence of a growing number of young initiatives, which are also providing a significant impetus and are encouraging new thinking. These “Next Generation Think Tanks” are seeking to engage in a dialogue with established decision-makers in order to offer fresh ideas for a healthcare system that has become somewhat set in its ways.
