Introduction by the editor

Health Technology Assessment (HTA) is a multidisciplinary field of analysis and decision, which studies the implications of clinical, social, ethical and economic development, dissemination and use of health technologies (drugs, biologics, devices, equipment, supplies, medical and surgical procedures, support systems, and organizational and managerial systems). The main purpose of HTA is to inform decision making in health care, including decisions made at the individual or patient level, the level of the health care provider or institution, or the regional, national and international levels. HTA is conducted by interdisciplinary groups using explicit analytical frameworks and drawing from a variety of methods.
