New HIQA guidance on assessing health technologies

By Dermot - 16th Jul 2015

The new document is a ‘budget impact analysis of health technologies in Ireland”.

“This guidance document provides an overview of the principles and methods that are used in assessing health technologies,” said Dr Máirín Ryan, Director of Health Technology Assessment (HTA) in HIQA.

“They are intended to be a guide for all those who are involved in the conduct or use of HTA in Ireland, promoting the production of assessments that are timely, reliable, consistent and relevant to the needs of decision makers and key stakeholders in Ireland.

“It is also intended to inform technology assessments conducted by, or on behalf of the Health Information and Quality Authority, the National Centre for Pharmacoeconomics, the Department of Health and the HSE, to include health technology suppliers preparing applications for reimbursement.”

This guidance document has been developed in consultation with the HTA Scientific Advisory Group of the Authority.
