ISPOR – The Professional Society for Health Economics and Outcomes Research has published a new guidance on deliberative processes for health technology assessment (HTA). The guidance, published in Value in Health, provides a detailed checklist for setting up an efficient and transparent deliberative process that can also be used to augment existing ones.
According to lead author Wija Oortwijn, MSc, PhD, “There has been a lack of clear consensus on what constitutes ‘deliberation’ or ‘deliberative processes’ from a comprehensive HTA perspective. This lack of guidance has created the need for consensus international good practices. As part of its mission to improve decision making for health globally, ISPOR is collaborating with HTAi, another global, nonprofit, scientific and professional society with HTA expertise and experience to address this gap in global decision making. Together, these organizations formed the Joint HTAi/ISPOR Deliberative Processes for HTA Task Force.”
