ISPOR, the professional society for health economics and outcomes research (HEOR), which is dedicated to advancing HEOR excellence to improve decision making for health on a global scale, has announced the launch of its new Center for Health Technology Assessment website.
The website provides resources and tools to support health technology assessment (HTA), a multidisciplinary process that informs healthcare policy and supports clinical decision making by assessing health technologies in an evidence-based, systematic, transparent, and unbiased way. It also aims to bridge the gap between HEOR and other disciplines that inform HTA and healthcare decisions.
“The new Center for Health Technology Assessment is designed to provide a wide-ranging set of resources and tools related to health technology assessment,” said ISPOR CEO and Executive Director Nancy S Berg. “The Center for HTA was developed in support of ISPOR’s mission to advance HEOR excellence to improve decision making for health globally. Our objective is to offer a dynamic, up-to-date and comprehensive resource that helps inform healthcare decision makers conducting and utilising HTA.”
