The objective of this empirical study was to understand the perspectives and attitudes of policy-makers towards the use and impact of research in the health sector in low- and middle-income countries. The study used data from 83 semi-structured, in-depth interviews conducted with purposively selected policy-makers at the national level in Argentina, Egypt, Iran, Malawi, Oman and Singapore. The interviews were structured around an interview guide developed based on existing literature and in cons...

Objectives: A set of fifteen key principles (KP) has been recently proposed to guide decisions on the structure of HTA programs, the methods of HTA, the processes for conducting HTA and the use of HTA findings in decision-making. The objective of this research is to explore whether these KPs are relevant and useful in Latin America (LA), and to what extent they are being applied. Methods: A Web-based survey was sent to 11,792 HTA researchers and users in LA to explore the perceived relevance of ...

Few recent issues in drug development and health systems management have generated more commentary, and more controversy, than health technology assessment (HTA). The keen interest in HTA stems from the high stakes involved. For regardless of differences in definition and application, it is clear that HTA brings together public and private interests in a process in which there are potentially winners and losers, and the perception of outcome is highly contingent on each party’s point of view. Cr...

• Section I is largely descriptive and provides a brief inventory of the agencies that use health technology assessment (HTA) in Australia. First, the use of HTA by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) is discussed. The TGA is the principal agency regulating the availability and marketing of therapeutic products in Australia. An overview of the structure of the health-care system in Australia is then presented to provide a basis for understanding the subsequent discussion on the use of HTA...

Context:The discussion about improving the efficiency,quality, and long-term sustainability of the U.S. health care system is increasingly focusing on the need to provide better evidence for decision making through comparative effectiveness research (CER). In recent years, several other countries have established agencies to evaluate health technologies and broader management strategies to inform health care policy decisions. This article reviews experiences from Britain, France, Australia, and ...

Abstract Objective To estimate the long-term cost-effectiveness of adding pioglitazone versus placebo to standard treatment in high-risk patients with type 2 diabetes. Methods The validated CORE Diabetes Model was modified to project long-term clinical and cost outcomes associated with pioglitazone versus placebo, based on results from PROactive. The model retained basic structure and functionality, with interdependent Markov submodels, Monte Carlo simulation and user interface. Adjustments to s...

AbstractObjectives: Several studies, mostly from developed countries, have identified barriers and facilitators with regard to the uptake of health technology assessment (HTA). This study elicited, using best-worst scaling (BWS), what HTA experts in Colombia consider to be the most important barriers and facilitators in the use of HTA, and makes a comparison to results from the Netherlands.Methods: Two object case surveys (one for barriers, one for facilitators) were conducted among 18 experts (...
