The new definition of health technology assessment: A milestone in international collaboration

Have we got news for you? Well, yes, groundbreaking news!

The International Network of Agencies for HTA (INAHTA) and Health Technology Assessment International (HTAI) in collaboration with an international joint task group have developed a new definition of HTA, bolstered by the wealth of knowledge and experience of these two prominent Networks.

The task group, consisting of representatives of leading HTA networks, societies and global organizations, developed guiding principles for the process and followed an established consultation plan with the broader HTA community to develop the definition.

These promising findings will have a substantial impact on the HTA community and represent a truly commendable effort at a time where there is a constantly growing interest for HTA tools, mechanisms and principles.

The results of their knowledge co-production can be accessed on the website of the International Journal of Technology Assessment in Health Care: Click here.
