MarketReportsOnline - Health Technology Assessment (HTA): a European perspective

04-Dec-2011 | News-Press Release

The bottom line: For payers facing tough financial crunches across Europe, Health Technology Assessment (HTA) is becoming increasingly important. Not only is HTA influencing reimbursement, it is having an impact on price and market access.

And it’s not surprising. With greater scrutiny over the clinical and financial value of drugs, medical devices and procedures, HTA is increasingly being accepted around the world. The European situation is somewhat different: existing across multiple borders, the ‘Europeanisation’ agenda of HTA has sparked debates about European-wide standards, the possibility of a single agency governing HTA and the need for formalized cooperation.

Report Overview
In Health Technology Assessment (HTA): a European perspective, FirstWord examines the current role of HTA in Europe, from its impact on reimbursement and pricing to market access. The report focuses on the experiences of five European nations, reviewing the history of HTA and the key agencies in each. Written by an expert health economist and with insight from experts from NICE, EUnetHTA , the EMA and leading pharmaceutical companies, the report reveals the problems, pitfalls and—most importantly—the potential of a harmonized approach to HTA in Europe.
