With a view of internationalization and continuous development of its activities, ALTEMS joins the following networks:
AdHopHTA is a 3-year project which is funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Program and which involves 10 Institutions. AdHopHTA's aim is to strenghten the use and impact of Health Technology Assessment (HTA) in local hospital settings, an important area of decision making and resource allocation. In particular, AdHopHTA will contribute to building a European ecosystem for HTA in and for hospitals.
EHMA is a membership organisation that aims to build the capacity and raise the quality of health management in Europe. To achieve its objective, EHMA brings together the research, policy and management communities in order to share knowledge between experts and health care institutions and to influence health policies in Europe. Currently EHMA has over 170 members across more than 30 countries in the WHO region and beyond and it is the only group in Europe focused on healthcare management; members range from hospitals to universities, from ministries of health to primary care providers, from management education schools to consultancies.
EUnetHTA is a network of government appointed organisations and a large number of relevant regional agencies and non-for-profit organisations that produce or contribute to HTA in 32 European countries including 26 EU Member States. It focuses on HTA in Europe to facilitate efficient use of resources available for HTA, to create a sustainable system of HTA knowledge sharing, and to promote good practice in HTA methods and processes. EUnetHTA aims at developing reliable, timely, transparent and transferable information to contribute to HTA in European countries.
