What Is Health Technology Assessment?

The systematic use of evidence to inform healthcare decisions for new health technologies (eg, therapeutic interventions, diagnostics, prevention) is now well established globally. At its center, the multidisciplinary activity of health technology assessment (HTA) has gained increased recognition [1]. HTA has become a standard policy tool for informing decision makers who must manage the entry and use of pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and other technologies (including complex interventions) within health systems, eg, through reimbursement and pricing.
