by co-operation, training, end health literacy
i-HTS members and the network by itself is engaged in scientific projects to improve evidence generation and transparency of new technologies or the usage of technologies in new indications
The awareness of methodologies, the knowledge on the implementation of agencies and the maintenance, the integration of common knowledge and the integration in local settings. Many things to know and to train.
Nothing can be done just by a single organisation. The complexity and the best available knowledge on processes and technologies had to be combined with different groups. By this we are happy to have formal co-operations with WorldHealthOrganisation (WHO), with Health Technology Assessment international, with the International Network of Agencies for HTA (INAHTA), with the International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE)
Missing knowledge on a high level on a single technology is not only needed during the first assessment, but also during the usage as knowledge on appropriate usage and at the end o the life-cycle to prepare next generation and to disinvest to improve services.
