HTx – Next Generation Health Technology Assessment to support patient-centred, societally oriented, real-time decision-making on access and reimbursement for health technologies throughout Europe

The systematic evaluation of properties, effects, and/or impacts of health technology is important for policy decision-making. Health technology assessment (HTA) considers the social, economic, organisational and ethical issues of a health intervention or health technology. The EU-funded HTx project will create a framework for HTA that supports patient-centred, societally oriented and real-time decision-making for integrated healthcare throughout Europe. To support HTA decision-making, the project will boost statistical and econometric methods for generating robust estimates of effectiveness and cost-effectiveness. It will also help improve methods to support personalised treatment advice fitted for sharing with patients and their physicians. In close collaboration with the European Network for HTA (EUnetHTA), HTx will improve synergies between regulatory agencies, HTA bodies and clinical guideline developers.
