What is HTA?

According to Health Technology Assessment International ( Health Technology Assessment (HTA) is a multidisciplinary process that uses explicit methods to determine the value of a health technology at different points in its lifecycle. The purpose is to inform decision-making in order to promote an equitable, efficient and high-quality health system. 


About HTA4Patients Project

The European Patients Academy on Therapeutic Innovation (EUPATI) is leading a 3-year training project entitled ‘HTA4Patients’ from 01 March 2023.    

The European Union’s new framework for Health Technology Assessment (HTA) regulation (EU 2021/2282) represents a unique opportunity to strengthen the involvement of patient communities in HTA processes. Strong and informed input from patients and patient representation is necessary to support this new framework and efficient HTA.

HTA4Patients will enhance the education, training and information that EUPATI already provides on HTA via its Open Classroom and Toolbox empowering patients and patient organisations to play a vital role in the implementation of the new framework.
