The Galen Institute is a non-profit research organization devoted exclusively to health policy. We work to promote a more informed public debate over ideas that advance individual freedom, consumer choice, and competition in the health sector.
What is the Galen Institute? The Galen Institute, Inc., is a not-for-profit, free-market research organization devoted exclusively to health policy. It was founded in 1995 by Grace-Marie Turner to promote a more informed public debate over individual freedom, consumer choice, competition, and diversity in the health sector. The Galen Institute believes that: • Consumers and their physicians should have authority and responsibility over their own health care decisions. • A consumer-driven market will lower costs, promote innovation, expand choice, and increase access to better medical care. • The vibrant free market will encourage research and innovation and provide better access to new medical technologies. • Updating outmoded tax policy will facilitate greater access to more affordable health insurance.
What Does Galen Do? The Galen Institute works on public policy ideas that: • Allow consumers to choose their own doctors so that they are in charge of medical decisions • Give workers freedom from the fear that losing a job may mean losing health insurance • Encourage research and innovation to find more cures and better treatments for illnesses • Provide broader access to new and better medical treatments • Embrace the use of new health care information technologies • Reduce costs based upon competition, not price control
