Health Technology Assessment - World Hospitals and Health Services

The WHO defines health technology assessment (HTA) as “the systematic evaluation of properties, effects, and/or impacts of health technology …. a multidisciplinary process to evaluate the social, economic, organizational and ethical issues of a health intervention or health technology.” It defines health technology as the “application of organized knowledge and skills in the form of devices, medicines, vaccines, procedures and systems developed to solve a health problem and improve quality of lives.”
In this issue of the World Hospitals and Health Services (WHHS) Journal, the contributing authors look at the different ways in which HTA can contribute to informed policy decision making in the health sector, including advantages and some caveats.
