Dec. 5, 2011 - PRLog -- The bottom line: For payers facing tough financial crunches across Europe, Health Technology Assessment (HTA) is becoming increasingly important. Not only is HTA influencing reimbursement, it is having an impact on price and market access.

And it’s not surprising. With greater scrutiny over the clinical and financial value of drugs, medical devices and procedures, HTA is increasingly being accepted around the world. The European situation is somewhat different: existing across multiple borders, the ‘Europeanisation’ agenda of HTA has sparked debates about European-wide standards, the possibility of a single agency governing HTA and the need for formalized cooperation.
