Introduction to Health Technology Assessment (HTA 101)
Early Health Care Technology Assessment and Origins of Technology Assessment are references for Chapter I.
Over the past 50 years, technological progress has led to some genuinely astounding advancements in the field of healthcare. Antivirals, anticlotting drugs, antidiabetic drugs, antihypertensive drugs, antirheumatic drugs, vaccines, pharmacogenomics and targeted cancer therapies, cardiac rhythm management, diagnostic imaging, minimally invasive surgery, joint replacement, pain management, infection control, and health information technology are just a few of the recent advancements that have helped to improve the delivery of healthcare and patient outcomes.
Benefit of medical technology assessment using clinical trials - Growing Health Care Expenses
Growing health care expenses have been attributed to the spread of medical technology and its growing applications, with the former being held "guilty" for the latter. However, this connection is erratic, intricate, and developing (Cutler 2001; Cutler 2011; Goyen 2009; Medicare Payment Advisory Commission 2001; Newhouse 1992; Smith 2000). The Congressional Budget Office of the United States came to the conclusion that "approximately half of the rise in health care spending over the previous several decades was connected with the improved capabilities of medicine brought about by technology advancements" (US Congressional Budget Office 2008).
Benefit of medical technology assessment using clinical trials | Cutting Edge Medical Technologies
Few patients or healthcare professionals are ready to forgo access to cutting-edge medical technologies. The use of technology has been encouraged in wealthy and developing nations by patient and physician incentives to pursue any prospective health benefit with little concern for cost, as well as by third-party payment, provider competition, efficient marketing of technologies, and consumer knowledge. Some of the variables affecting the demand for health technology are shown in Box I-1.
Benefit of medical technology assessment using clinical trials | Factors Supporting the Health Technology Market
Box I-1. Factors Supporting the Health Technology Market
improvements in engineering and science
Specifically, patent protection and intellectual property
rising incidence of chronic illnesses
dangers from new diseases and emerging pathogens
payment by other parties, particularly fee-for-service payments
Financial rewards for IT firms, doctors, hospitals, and others
Direct-to-consumer marketing, media coverage, social media, as well as consumer awareness and activism, all promote public demand
Cascade consequences of off-label usage of medications, biologics, and technologies that occur from pointless testing, unexpected outcomes, or anxious patients or doctors
Academic medical facilities that teach specialists in medicine
Competition among providers to supply cutting-edge technologies
robust or expanding economies
Technology continues to be the foundation of health care in this period of rising cost pressures, restructuring of health care delivery and payment, and increased consumer demand—yet still poor access to care for many millions of people. Whether the technology is the culprit or not, it may be handled in ways that enhance patient access and health outcomes while also supporting important innovation. A growing number of politicians in the health care industry are having an impact on how technology is developed, adopted, and disseminated. In order to make decisions about whether or how to develop technology, to allow it on the market, to acquire it, to use it, to pay for its use, to ensure its appropriate use, and more, health product makers, regulators, clinicians, patients, hospital managers, payers, government leaders, and others are demanding more and more well-founded data. This demand is reflected in the expansion and development of health technology assessment (HTA) in both the public and private sectors.
Benefit of medical technology assessment using clinical trials | HTA Technologies are Changing
HTA techniques are changing, and a wider range of uses are being found for them. The core concepts and problems of a dynamic area of study are introduced in this paper. A wider range of professionals from many disciplines and job vocations are contributing to the field of health care. The increased demand for HTA is driving the field to develop more systematic and transparent evaluation methods and reporting to a variety of consumers, particularly from the for-profit and not-for-profit business sectors as well as from government bodies. The corpus of information regarding HTA is dynamic and cannot be located in a single location. HTA practitioners and users should not only keep an eye on developments in the field, but also have several possibilities to influence it.
