HTA Resources: a wealth of knowledge!
Anyone interested in HTA has a lot to celebrate these days. Not least because the “Designing and Implementing Deliberative Processes for Health Technology Assessment: A Good Practices Report of a Joint HTAi/ISPOR Task Force” report is out and available.
With key HTA experts such as Wija Oortwijn, Dan Ollendorf, Andrés Pichon-Rivière and many others, this is an excellent and inspirational resource to better understand deliberative processes for HTA.
In their own words, the authors summarize the deliberative process aptly and underline the considerable value added of their work:
A deliberative process for HTA consists of procedures, activities, and events that support the informed and critical examination of an issue and the weighing of arguments and evidence to guide a subsequent decision.
Guidance and an accompanying checklist are provided for (i) developing the governance and structure of an HTA program and (ii) informing how the various stages of an HTA process might be managed using deliberation.
