Stories of hospital-based HTA successes

An ever increasing stream of new health technologies claims to have the potential to solve many of the current challenges in healthcare and provide answers to unmet health needs. Hospital-based HTA (HB-HTA) has proven time and again that it is able to separate the technological wheat from the chaff and benefit hospitals in real life.

HB-HTA answers the questions relevant for the individual hospital’s decisions on health technologies:

After 10 years of running one HB-HTA unit, 85% of clinicians acknowledged its utility and necessity.

HB-HTA allows hospital management to make better informed investment decisions:

Results from 4 hospitals show that recommendations from HB-HTA reports were adopted by hospital decision-makers in more than 90% of cases.

HB-HTA underpins better investment decisions that save hospitals money:

For one hospital a saving of US$ 371,000 and a 10% reduction in unnecessary laboratory tests were achieved in 1 year. For another hospital 16 of its HB-HTA reports lead to an estimated annual saving of US$ 3M.

This project received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development under grant agreement no. 305018.
