HIQAs Health Technology Assessment (HTA) team has published two updated guidelines on how HTAs are carried out in Ireland.

They are Guidelines for the Economic Evaluation of Health Technologies in Ireland and Guidelines for the Budget Impact Analysis of Health Technologies in Ireland

The updated guidelines:

  • will assist decision-makers in evaluating the cost-effectiveness and budget impact of health technologies
  • aim to promote the use of a solid evidence-base to guide investment decisions in the Irish healthcare system
  • will also help to ensure that healthcare interventions used in Ireland are clinically effective for patients, are affordable, and are good value for money.
