Polityka zdrowotna i HTA

Abstrakt

Set of procedures referred to as Health Technology Assessment (HTA) becomes more and more popular among health policy makers in many. There are two factors contributing to this process. Firstly, it is universal access to health services and their guaranteed financing from public  esources.
Secondly, a pressure exerted by manufacturers of pharmaceuticals and medical equipment who looks for profit. The choice which is to be made by decision makers is difficult. If new technologies are implemented too late – there are losses in health and a dissatisfaction of citizens is growing. If they are implemented to hastily, without necessary tests, there are losses in health again and public payer has to pay – and waste – a lot of money. HTA opens a way to make more rational decisions.
