Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Website
The Department has developed a new website which provides a comprehensive overview
of current Australian Government HTA processes used to inform decisions about the
registration of health technologies for use in Australia and the reimbursement of
these technologies provided under various funding programs, including the Medicare
Benefits Schedule, Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme and the Prostheses List.
The website is part of the Australian Government's response to the December 2009 Review of Health Technology Assessment in Australia (HTA Review) and arose from stakeholders identifying the need to have comprehensive information about Australian Government HTA processes available in one central point in an easy to use format.
The website also provides a portal to the HTA Access Point (referred to during the HTA Review as a single entry point) which will assist potential applicants seeking assessment of codependent and hybrid technologies.
