Syndicated report on HTA landscape and all published non-drug HTAs in Europe in 2019, including medical devices and procedures, in-vitro diagnostic tests and e-health solutions
Health technology assessment plays a big role in adoption of medical technologies in Europe. However, due to large number of HTA organizations and complexity of HTA schemes, the activity and their impact on reimbursement and funding decisions is not well understood.
We developed an overview of all non-drug HTAs in 2019 to help industry to understand HTA landscape, the role of individual HTA organizations, their activity in relation to number of HTA reports and types of technologies covered.
Report is delivered in the Acrobat PDF version.
This report complements the series of MTRC analytical reports in the field of reimbursement for medical technologies, including reports on innovation funding schemes in 2021 and funding frameworks and decisions for medical technologies.
