EVALUACIÓN DE TECNOLOGÍAS SANITARIAS
EUnetHTA was established to create an effective and sustainable network for HTA across Europe – we work together to help developing reliable, timely, transparent and transferable information to contribute to HTAs in European countries.
EUnetHTA Joint Action 3 (2016 - 2020)
Joint Action 3 aims to define and implement a sustainable model for the scientific and technical cooperation on Health Technology Assessment (HTA) in Europe. The voluntary cooperation within and between national and regional HTA Bodies is essential in this joint action.
This joint action will increase the use, quality and efficiency of joint HTA work at European level. EUnetHTA will support evidence-based, sustainable and equitable choices in healthcare and health technologies and support re-use in regional and national HTA reports and activities.
To develop a voluntary, sustainable European Collaboration on HTA, the model focusses on supporting Members States in receiving HTA relevant information that is- objective, reliable, timely, comparable.
The collaborative production of structured HTA core information, including rapid HTA’s will be decentralised, methodologies and production related information and communication technology infrastructure will be finalised as stand alone support network from 2020 onwards.
The EUnetHTA JA3 will build on the lessons, success and products of the earlier EUnetHTA Joint Actions. The EUnetHTA collaboration has grown to 78 organisations from 29 countries. A network of strong partners across Europe working together for better access to health technologies for European citizens.
Assessment international (HTAi) is the global scientific and professional society for all those who produce, use, or encounter HTA. HTAi has members from over 65 countries and embraces all stakeholders, including researchers, agencies, policy makers, industry, academia, health service providers, and patients/consumers. We are the neutral forum for collaboration and the sharing of leading information and expertise.
Our members regularly participate in Meetings, Policy Fora and Interest Groups. HTAi also provides access to a variety of Resources including the International Journal of Technology Assessment in Health Care (IJTAHC).
HTAi is governed by an elected Board of Directors that is supported by an Executive Committee, several Advisory Committees and a Secretariat.
Vision: We are the leading global discussion platform for all stakeholders engaged in the efficient production and use of HTAs in decision-making.
Mission: We support and promote the development, communication, understanding and use of HTA around the world as a scientifically-based and multidisciplinary means of informing decision making on the use of effective technologies and the efficient use of resources in health care.
Values: Service, Collaboration, Professionalism and Integrity, Transparency, Accountability
The International Network of Agencies for Health Technology Assessment
Health care decision making requires the right evidence at the right time. Every day there are new health technologies available that can improve patient outcomes and refine health system efficiency. Health technology assessment (HTA) is a tool to review technologies and provide evidence of the value these technologies can deliver to patients and their families, health system stakeholders, and to society more broadly.
INAHTA is a network of 52 HTA agencies that support health system decision making that affects over 1 billion people in 33 countries around the globe. With more than 2,100 staff and consultants working in the INAHTA network, there are clear benefits to connecting these agencies together to cooperate and share information about producing and disseminating HTA reports for evidence based decision making.
INAHTA serves this purpose.
What is Health Technology Assessment (HTA)?
HTA is the systematic evaluation of the properties and effects of a health technology, addressing the direct and intended effects of this technology, as well as its indirect and unintended consequences, and aimed mainly at informing decision making regarding health technologies. HTA is conducted by interdisciplinary groups that use explicit analytical frameworks drawing on a variety of methods.
A health technology is defined as an intervention that may be used to promote health, to prevent, diagnose or treat acute or chronic disease, or for rehabilitation. Health technologies include pharmaceuticals, devices, procedures and organizational systems used in health care.
INAHTA values collaboration with the international HTA community and broader global health community, and we are proud to collaborate with the following organizations.
In the 21st century, health is a shared responsibility, involving equitable access to essential care and collective defence against transnational threats. WHO is the directing and coordinating authority for health within the United Nations system. It is responsible for providing leadership on global health matters, shaping the health research agenda, setting norms and standards, articulating evidence-based policy options, providing technical support to countries and monitoring and assessing health trends.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between INAHTA and the World Health Organization was signed at the INAHTA Annual Meeting 2009 in Singapore.
In 2015, an amendment was added to the MoU, identifying new areas of collaboration aligned with the strategic directions of shared interest between the WHO and INAHTA. The photo above is of Ms. Adriana Velazquez Berumen (WHO) and Dr. Brian O'Rourke (Chair, INAHTA Board) signing the amendment in Oslo, Norway in June 2015.
Health Technology Assessment international (HTAi) is an international professional society focusing specifically on HTA and embracing all those who do and use it, whether in academic institutions, health care facilities, industry, business, the voluntary sector, or government.
HTAi's mission is to provide a key forum for those from the worlds of health care, academia, and business interested in the science, development, and application of HTA. To support and promote the development, communication, understanding, and use of HTA around the world as a means of promoting the introduction of effective innovations and effective use of resources in health care.
A Memorandum of Understanding between INAHTA and HTAi was signed at the HTAi Annual Conference in Montreal, 2008.

The Guidelines International Network (G-I-N) is an international not-for-profit association of organisations and individuals involved in the development and use of clinical practice guidelines. It is a Scottish Charity with governance arrangements addressed in its Articles of Association. G-I-N seeks to improve the quality of health care by promoting systematic development of clinical practice guidelines and their application into practice, through supporting international collaboration.
A Memorandum of Understanding between INAHTA and G-I-N has been signed at the INAHTA Annual Meeting in 2009.
The International Information Network on New and Changing Health Technologies (EuroScan) is a collaborative network of HTA agencies for the exchange of information on important emerging new drugs, devices, procedures, processes, and settings in health care. The members of EuroScan aim to establish a permanent network among agencies and organisations in the field of HTA to: 1) Evaluate and exchange information on new and changing technologies; 2) Develop the sources of information used; 3) Develop applied methods for early assessment; and 4) Disseminate information on early identification and assessment activities. All EuroScan members are members of INAHTA.
