Health Technology Assessment

Welcome

Welcome to the Australian Government Department of Health’s Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Website.

This website provides an overview of the current Australian Government HTA processes used to inform decisions about the registration of health technologies for use in Australia, and reimbursement under Australian Government funding programs.

NEW The HTA Access Point has developed an Information Pack for applicants with co-dependent or hybrid technologies seeking reimbursement.

About Health Technology Assessment

The Australian Government assists Australians to access necessary health services by subsidising the cost of health related goods and services, including medical and surgical procedures, diagnostic tests, prostheses and medical devices, through different funding programs.

Australian Government HTA Processes

This page contains information on HTA for market entry and HTA for reimbursement, including links to the web pages of the relevant funding programs and expert advisory committees.

HTA Access Point

The HTA Review recommended the establishment of the HTA Access Point (Single Entry Point) to provide for better co-ordination and integration of Australian Government HTA processes.

HTA Review

On 27 February 2010, the Minister for Health and Ageing publicly released the Report of the Review of Health Technology Assessment in Australia (HTA Review). The report recommends key improvements to the way new health technologies, procedures and services are assessed for public and private funding.
