Institutionalization of health technology assessment : report on a WHO meeting, Bonn 30 June - 1 July 2000
AbstractThe WHO Regional Office for Europe convened a meeting for the description and discussion of experience with and the options for institutionalizing health technology assessment (HTA) in different countries and health systems. In this context, institutionalizing meant promoting structures and processes suitable to produce technology assessments that will be powerful in guiding policy and clinical practice towards the best possible health and cost outcomes. The meeting also explored ways of integrating HTA activities with initiatives for quality assurance (QA). The recommendations stressed the legal role of HTA in the health care system and called for the provision of sufficient resources; the integration of methods of HTA and QA; cooperation, communication and networking among HTA institutions in different settings and countries; training and education in HTA with emphasis on the implementation of results by empowering decision-makers; and the further development of HTA methods and processes
