According to Health Technology Assessment International's "HTAi Patient and Consumer Glossary," health technology assessment is the "systematic evaluation of the clinical effectiveness and/or cost-effectiveness and/or the social and ethical impact of a health technology" (such as a medicine) "on the lives of patients and the healthcare system." Its aim is to educate healthcare policymakers.HTA organisations, such as NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) in the United Kingdom, recommend whether a specific health technology should be used, and if so, in which setting and for which patients. According to the glossary, "assessments vary, but most look at the health benefits and risks of using the technology. They also look at costs and any wider impacts that the technology might have on a population or on society."
Created by Lilly Oncology as a global collaboration spanning diverse sectors, PACE (Patient Access to Cancer care Excellence) exists to encourage public policies and healthcare decisions that speed the development of new medicines, assure cancer treatments respond to the needs and qualities of individual patients, and improve patient access to the most effective cancer medicines. PACE is engaging key oncology stakeholders: patients, advocacy, payers, policymakers, providers, the public, researchers and politicians.
