THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION PUSHES FOR COOPERATION BETWEEN NATIONAL HTA AGENCIES
The European Commission carried out a « road map » to strengthen cooperation between national HTA (Health technology assessment) agencies. Commission’s States members have been thinking about ways to develop common methodologies to avoid current duplication of efforts and divergent approaches across EU.
Besides, the idea of the production of jointly agreed HTA reports evaluating clinical and economic benefits of a drug was brought up by the Commission. The adoption of these reports would make them mandatory and would lead to a permanent funding from EU and industries.
Despite this wish of harmonization some countries resist to a total convergence in assessments. The adoption of these measures will rely on industry and other stakeholders ability to convince skeptical members.
