Synopsis:
Requirements:

Seminar: active participation in the seminar, test

Exam: written test with open questions as a door-keeper to the oral exam; the result (passed/failed) and final grade of the exam depend on the oral part of the exam

Syllabus of lectures:

•Introduction to HTA, the role of HTA, historical overview. HTA definition: specification of HTA, basic lines of HTA, the perspective of HTA studies. Scope of HTA. Utilization of HTA in decisions about reimbursement of a new technology. Utilization of HTA for strategic decisions in hospitals. Separation of assessment and decision-making.

•Evidence based medicine. Quality of information sources for EBM. Literature reviews: technique of literature reviews, databases of publications and research results, Cochrane Institute. Meta-analysis and its techniques. Data sources: international databases, Institute of Health Information and Statistics of the Czech Republic, retrospective data from healthcare providers and payers.

•Outcomes in the field of HTA: how to collect, process, calculate with them. Types used in HTA.

•Multiple-criteria methods for figuring out the outcomes. Measurement of quality of life: QALY, DALY, LYG, various ways how to measure QoL, generic and specific questionnaires, time trade-off, standard gamble.

•Costs and resources of cost data: direct medical costs, direct non-medical costs. Costs and resources of cost data: Indirect costs, intangible costs.

•Cost analyses: CMA, CEA, CUA, ICER, CBA, CIA, CCA. Economic-theoretical foundations of cost analyses. Modelling in HTA. Sensitivity analysis.

•Core model. NICE model. HTA for pharmaceuticals.

•Utilization of HTA in decision-making about reimbursement of a new technology. Inclusion of a new technology in the reimbursement system. Disinvestment. Budget-impact analysis (BIA). Willingness to pay. Threshold values and their introduction. Individual thresholds.

•HTA for medical devices. Suitable analyses, the assessment process. HB-HTA: Utilization of HTA at a single-hospital level.

•Organization and collaboration in HTA: Institutions at a national level, transfer of results between different healthcare systems. International societies and organizations. Ethics and HTA.
