ISPOR Launches Center for Health Technology Assessment

New Website Offers Comprehensive Repository of Resources and Tools

Lawrenceville, NJ, USA—May 14, 2018—ISPOR, the professional society for health economics and outcomes research (HEOR), announced today the launch of its new Center for Health Technology Assessment website. The new website provides a comprehensive repository of resources and tools to support health technology assessment (HTA) and helps to bridge the gap between HEOR and other disciplines that inform HTA and healthcare decisions.

HTA is 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. Health technologies can include biopharmaceuticals, medical devices, diagnostics, etc. HTA has grown in importance as governments and other payers seek to provide the best possible health outcomes at affordable costs.

“The new Center for Health Technology Assessment is designed to provide a wide-ranging set of resources and tools related to health technology assessment,” noted 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 utilizing HTA.”

The Center for Health Technology Assessment is freely available to both ISPOR members and non-members and can be accessed at www.HTAcenter.org.
