Attaining, Maintaining, and Sustaining Healthcare Systems in a Changing World: The Role of HTA

The HTAi 2020 Annual Meeting will focus on the roles that Health Technology Assessment (HTA) can play in improving patient-relevant outcomes while sustaining healthcare systems.

Attaining universal health coverage (UHC) is a pressing issue for many countries, particularly those with lower and middle incomes. HTA is a recognized tool for priority setting, making evidence-based resource allocation decisions, and developing benefits packages to help achieve UHC. We also know that in these healthcare systems and in countries that have achieved UHC, HTA plays an ongoing role in progressing UHC and the sustainability of the healthcare systems.

However, current developments are challenging and changing treatment and epidemiological paradigms. Prominent examples include ‘disruptive’ technologies, such as cell and gene therapy, and the incoming data tide, including increased utilization of existing real-time data sources (like wearables), and modern technologies such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, and big data architecture.  The consequences for HTA and the need to adapt is apparent, and must be faced globally to ensure the continued sustainability of healthcare systems in 2020 and beyond.

HTAi invites you to join the leading minds in HTA to discuss and debate the role of HTA in attaining, maintaining, and sustaining healthcare systems in a changing world.
