A MedTech West seminar with Ola Samuelsson: Regional Hospital-Based Health Technology Assessment

Welcome to a new MedTech West seminar presented by Ola Samuelsson, MD and associate professor from HTA-centrum.

The Regional Health Technology Assessment Centre (HTA-centrum) Region Västra Götaland, has the task to make statements on HTA reports carried out in VGR. The statement should summarise the question at issue, level of evidence, efficacy, risks, and economical and ethical aspects of the particular health technology that has been assessed in the Regional activity-based HTA.

Health technology assessment (HTA) is the systematic evaluation of properties, effects, and/or impacts of health care technologies, i.e. interventions that may be used to promote health, to prevent, diagnose or treat disease or for rehabilitation or long-term care. It may address the direct, intended consequences of technologies as well as their indirect, unintended consequences. Its main purpose is to inform technology-related policymaking in health care.

Register by sending an email to seminars@medtechwest.se. A light lunch will be served afterwards to participants that have registered at the latest on February 9 at 2 pm. Please write “MTW seminar Feb 11″ in the subject line.
