Description/Abstract

Throughout the world, healthcare innovations have put pressure on limited resources while governments and patients have demanded top quality, yet cost effective, services. This makes it increasingly difficult for anyone who plans, provides, or receives health services to judge which intervention to use—what works, how well, at what cost, for whom, in what circumstances, and with what impact? Health technology assessment (HTA) is a multidisciplinary specialty whose purpose is to bring together the evidence to answer those questions.
