Abstract
Background Currently there is no framework for those involved in the identification, evaluation and prioritisation of new diagnostic technologies. Therefore we aimed to develop prioritisation criteria for the assessment of new diagnostic technologies, by gaining international consensus on not only which criteria should be used, but also their relative importance.

With the numerous reports of new technologies and biomarkers reported in the literature, it may be surprising that there are not an equal number of new products available to the clinical diagnostic laboratory. Powerful potential tools such as protein microarrays and MS patterns have been extensively published yet commercialization and acceptance of these technologies has yet to happen. The reasons for this are a combination of industry risk avoidance, academic focus on discovery, and a lack of a...

Objectives All western healthcare systems are confronted with a rising number of new health technologies. To support decision-making processes with sound information about new health technologies, some countries have established "Horizon Scanning Systems (HSS)". This paper gives an overview of processes and practices of HSS.Method The paper is based on a literature review (Medline and Embase) and on unpublished information gathered from HSS-agencies.Results The 13 current HSS have been collabora...

Walley outlines some of the problems encountered in evaluating laboratory diagnostic tests.1 One of the great difficulties faced by organisations such as the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) is to find a means to prioritise diagnostic technologies for rapid evaluation. I have recently developed the following prioritisation criteria for use by organisations. 1. Can the disease be clearly defined? 2. Is the condition an important problem …

Objectives: This study sought to identify and compare various practical and current approaches of health technology assessment (HTA) priority setting. Methods: A literature search was performed across PubMed, MEDLINE, EMBASE, BIOSIS, and Cochrane. Given an earlier review conducted by European agencies (EUR-ASSESS project), the search was limited to literature indexed from 1996 onward. We also searched Web sites of HTA agencies as well as HTAi and ISTAHC conference s. Agency representatives were ...

Background: In the English National Health Service (NHS), Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) are responsible for commissioning health-care services on behalf of their populations. As resources are finite, decisions are required as to which services best fulfil population needs. Evidence on effectiveness varies in quality and availability. Nevertheless, decisions still have to be made.Methods: We report the development and pilot application of a multi-criteria prioritization mechanism in an English PCT, ...

Objectives: Uncertainty is pervasive in decision making on new health technologies; therefore, some countries have put systems in place to support decision makers with timely information. An important, but as yet undocumented, determinant of the potential value for decision making of these so-called horizon scanning systems (HSSs) is how the most significant health technologies are selected. Methods: All thirteen member organizations of EuroScan, a collaborative network for HSSs, were surveyed a...

Most systematic reviews rely substantially on the assessment of the methodological quality of the individual trials. The aim of this study was to obtain consensus among experts about a set of generic core items for quality assessment of randomized clinical trials (RCTs). The invited participants were experts in the field of quality assessment of RCTs. The initial item pool contained all items from existing criteria lists. Subsequently, we reduced the number of items by using the Delphi consensus...

To identify and analyze the criteria, approaches, and conceptual frameworks, used for national/international priority setting. We performed a search of the main biomedical databases (Medline/PubMed, Embase, Centre for Reviews and Dissemination, and Cochrane), and we reviewed assessment agency websites, among other sources. An systematic review of the literature was carried out. Eligibility criteria for inclusion were based on set of predefined criteria. Systematic reviews and/or qualitative stud...

Objectives Society is confronted with the rapid emergence of innovation in science and technology. To manage this, horizon scanning is being adopted globally to identify, assess and prioritise innovations and trends at an early stage of their development. This enables decision-makers to be better informed and to prepare for change. The aim of this paper is to systematically identify and evaluate horizon scanning methodologies employed in the healthcare and biomedical fields. Methods A systematic...

Background Diagnostic tests’ impact on patient outcomes and health processes is potentially large, and proper evaluations before widespread adoption are warranted. Such evaluations are challenged by the fact that tests can have multiple purposes, in different clinical pathways, with different roles.

Objective Since 2008, the Oxford Diagnostic Horizon Scan Programme has been identifying and summarising evidence on new and emerging diagnostic technologies relevant to primary care. We used these reports to determine the sequence and timing of evidence for new point-of-care diagnostic tests and to identify common evidence gaps in this process. Design Systematic overview of diagnostic horizon scan reports. Primary outcome measures We obtained the primary studies referenced in each horizon scan r...

A number of point-of-care diagnostic tests are commercially available in the UK, however, not much is known regarding GPs' desire for these tests or the clinical areas of interest. Objective. We sought to establish for which conditions point-of-care tests (POCTs) would be most helpful to UK GPs for diagnosis, reduction of referrals, and monitoring of chronic conditions. Methods. A total of 1635 regionally...

Today, health-care professionals everywhere understand the necessity of placing illness, treatment alternatives, and most importantly, patients’ well-being, in a political, economic, and social context. Difficulties in evaluating the socioeconomic factors related to single illnesses have been well documented, but no model exists yet for evaluating costs related to a pathology that involves two serious illnesses simultaneously (e.g., brain tumor-related epilepsy (BTRE). Published cost studies hav...

AbstractPoint-of-care tests are biomedical tests on patients’ specimens like blood, saliva, urine or faeces, which can be used near the patient, without interference of a laboratory. The use of these tests, many of which have been recently developed, is increasing in general practice, where they add to the GP's set of diagnostic instruments. The question is, however, whether they always contribute to an effective and high-quality diagnostic process by GPs. We present a set of criteria that can b...

A B S T R A C T The ranking-type Delphi method is well suited as a means for consensus-building by using a series of questionnaires to collect data from a panel of geographically dispersed participants. This method allows a group of experts to systematically approach a particular task or problem. While information systems researchers have been using this method for almost three decades, no research to date has attempted to assess the extent to which Delphi studies have been rigorously conducted....
