I believe we would all agree that the only reason we produce health technology assessments (HTAs) is to inform health policy decisions, and when they fail to do so they are a waste of time and effort. Nevertheless, at the present time it seems that HTAs often have little impact [1–4]. My first objective will be to consider some of the factors that cause HTAs to fail to influence policy. My second will be to report on an ongoing experiment in HTA development that attempts to minimize these factor...

Objectives: Health technology assessment (HTA) is a policy-oriented form of research designed to inform decision-makers on the introduction, use, and dissemination of health technology. Whereas research on knowledge transfer has focused on knowledge producers, little attention has been given to the user's perspective. This study examines how health-care provider, administrator, and patient associations across Canada use HTA reports and the limitations they encounter when accessing and using scie...

Objectives: The aim of this study was to identify good practice principles for health technology assessment (HTA) that are the most relevant and of highest priority for application in Latin America and to identify potential barriers to their implementation in the region. Methods: HTA good practice principles proposed at the international level were identified and then explored during a deliberative process in a forum of assessors, funders, and product manufacturers. Results: Forty-two representa...

This chapter provides a view of how due to the health systems and technologies development in the last century a series of functions have been developed to achieve an optimal health for the entire population with available resources. Considering the particularities of the imaging technology area, the authors describe in what manner the value of these technologies should be defined, what are the approaches proposed for assessing this value, both by academia and by several institutions and finally...

The second HTAi Asia Policy Forum meeting (2014) was held in Manilla, 10th -11th June 2014. The topic of the meeting was - Transferability of HTA. This report represents the background paper for the meeting, as developed by OHE. HTA is a tool to support health systems to make decisions about allocating their limited health care resources. In turn, HTA needs to be efficient and effective if investment in HTA is to be a sensible use of money. One important part of ensuring this will be to avoid du...
