A Health Technology Assessment (HAS) is a systematic evaluation of the properties and effects of a health technology. It aims to address the direct and intended effects of this technology, as well as its indirect and unintended consequences, which is mainly at informing decision making regarding health technologies.
HSR performs HTAs to support decision-making in three main areas: clinical service planning, programme development, and the Medical Device Oversight Committee (MDOC).
