  1. 1. Introduction to the HTA Core Model® and core HTA information EUnetHTA Training Course for Stakeholders Brussels, 16 Jan 2014 Kristian Lampe THL/FINOHTA European network for Health Technology Assessment | JA2 2012-2015 | www.eunethta.eu

  3. 3. Key aims of the HTA Core Model • To capture the shareable ”core” of HTA • To enable production of structured HTA information and sharing the acquired knowledge • To support joint HTA production • To support local HTA production European network for Health Technology Assessment | JA2 2012-2015 | www.eunethta.eu 3
  4. 4. How do we perceive HTA, i.e. how to split the onion? European network for Health Technology Assessment | JA2 2012-2015 | www.eunethta.eu
  5. 5. What is the Core? - Two options for splitting the onion Technology assessment in health care is a multidisciplinary field of policy analysis. It studies the medical, social, ethical, and economic implications of development, diffusion, and use of health technology. (INAHTA 2005) European network for Health Technology Assessment | JA2 2012-2015 | www.eunethta.eu 5
  6. 6. What is TA / HTA? – back to basics “The Congress hereby finds and declares that: (a) As technology continues to change and expand rapidly, its applications are 1. large and growing in scale; and 2. increasingly extensive, pervasive, and critical in their impact, beneficial and adverse, on the natural and social environment. (b) Therefore, it is essential that, to the fullest extent possible, the consequences of technological applications be anticipated, understood, and considered in determination of public policy on existing and emerging national problems.” Office of Technology Assessment Act, 1972 http://www.princeton.edu/~ota/ns20/act_f.html 6 European network for Health Technology Assessment | JA2 2012-2015 | www.eunethta.eu

  12. 12. HTA Ontology ˗A formal representation of the information contents of an HTA (e.g. ”the effect of technology on reduction of symptoms”) and relationships between various parts of the content ˗Assessment elements as building blocks (each provides information on certain aspect of technology) ˗Assessment elements defined by ˗9 domains (wider angle of viewing, e.g. clinical effectiveness), ˗topics within domains (more specific areas of investigation, and ˗issues within topics (practical questions) European network for Health Technology Assessment | JA2 2012-2015 | www.eunethta.eu 12
  13. 13. Methodological guidance ˗Assists in finding answers to questions defined by the ontology ˗Different levels: domains, assessment elements, whole model / whole HTA ˗Domain-level guidance mostly as reviews of state-of-the-art methodology and links to detailed guidance ˗Different strengths of guidance: tips, recommendations, standards European network for Health Technology Assessment | JA2 2012-2015 | www.eunethta.eu 13
  14. 14. Reporting structure ˗Standardized format for output of HTA information production ˗In the form of collections containing ˗General texts, e.g. introduction, summary ˗Domain-level content, e.g methodology, discussion ˗Result cards, each containing an answer to question (or answers to questions) defined by one assessment element (=combination domain-topic-issue) ˗Appendices ˗Core HTA information = any HTA information produced using the HTA Core Model and published within the HTA Core Model Online ˗Different types of collections (EUnetHTA/Other) ˗EUnetHTA Core HTA = Extensive assessment, all domains included ˗EUnetHTA Rapid HTA = Fast assessment, a selection of domains included ˗Other = Based on users needs, e.g. single AE, single domain ˗EUnetHTA collections do not contain recommendations European network for Health Technology Assessment | JA2 2012-2015 | www.eunethta.eu 14
  15. 15. Core HTA information European network for Health Technology Assessment | JA2 2012-2015 | www.eunethta.eu 15
  16. 16. Production process in brief 1. Select the assessment elements that are to be included in the collection. 2. Translate the included issues each into one or more practical research question(s). 3. Answer the questions using guidance within the Model. 4. Organise the answers according to the common reporting structure. 5. RESULT: a structured collection of HTA information in which information on a particular issue can be found at a standard location (whether in paper or electronic form). European network for Health Technology Assessment | JA2 2012-2015 | www.eunethta.eu 16
  17. 17. Core HTAs • One type of core hta information collection • Four pilot core HTAs produced until now within EunetHTA, fifth will be ready soon. One further pilot commenced, an another scheduled within WP4 of JA2. • Intentionally built to “not look like a European HTA report” • Serve primarily as a scientific basis for local (national, regional) reports • Do not contain recommendations regarding the use (or non-use) of technologies • Enable distributed production of HTA (e.g. different domains by separate research groups) • Easy sharing of produced information European network for Health Technology Assessment | JA2 2012-2015 | www.eunethta.eu 17
