Ok, I agree
Health technology assessment (HTA) is a multidisciplinary process that summarizes information about the medical, social, economic and ethical issues related to the use of medical technologies in a systematic, transparent, unbiased, robust manner.

The key objective of HTA is to advise policymakers and providers about the necessity of adopting and appropriateness of reimbursing procedures, devices, and IVD tests.

Most developed countries have functioning HTA framework on different levels (national, regional, hospital-based). Only in Europe, 337 and 256 Med Tech HTA reports were released in 2018 and 2019 respectively.

HTA plays an important role in the market access landscape for medical technologies. Very often, HTA is a formal part of the reimbursement process (e.g., in France or Norway), or it is not formally connected to the reimbursement process, but it significantly impacts the adoption of technologies (e.g., in England).

Market access professionals should closely monitor new initiated and published HTAs for the products under their supervision. The key challenge for effective monitoring is a large number of HTA organizations, language barrier and lack of time to do such monitoring properly.

MTRC, a market leader in European Med Tech market access, is bringing a new service to enable effective time- and cost-effective monitoring of HTA activity in Europe and globally: HTA Alerts - Med Tech.

This is a twin service with similar activity on key reimbursement news for medical devices (procedure coding, DRG and reimbursement codes, coverage decisions, clinical guidelines etc.), "Reimbursement Alerts – Med Tech".
