As the focus on evidence-based decision-making in healthcare has increased, the role and scope of Health Technology Assessment (HTA) has evolved. The rising number of new pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and other health innovations, along with their novelty and increasing complexity, have led to an increased demand for assessment. This webinar provides a deep dive into what Health Technology Assessment agencies do and the types of literature reviews they do, how evidence synthesis fits in with Cost Effectiveness Analysis and Budget Impact Assessment, and their current challenges with literature review use to support HTAs.
