Healthcare organization and financing in the German-speaking countries is focussing more and more on selective contracting rather than only on standard regulations and contracts (such as the current DRGs systems for hospital care). Forms of direct contracts between payers (sickness funds) and providers (doctors or hospitals) in Germany include, for instance, Integrated Care concepts. It may be worthwhile developing concepts and contracts in this area, at least as an interim option and/or partial solution leading to reimbursement with respect to novel healthcare technologies,
