The HTAi 2022 Annual Meeting Theme

The main theme for #HTAi2022Utrecht is Lifecycle Approach: Coming Together to Make it Happen.

What does it mean?

Calls for a lifecycle approach to determine the value of medicines, devices and other health services have grown over recent years in response to the challenges of innovative and novel technologies, disconnected and disparate stakeholders and data requirements, public expectations and achieving patient-centric health systems. A lifecycle approach may aim to support better reimbursement decisions and more appropriate use of health technologies while encouraging efficiencies. It could avoid the disconnects that may occur between stakeholders when health technologies are introduced in a linear or stepped process. As such, it has been suggested that a lifecycle approach should promote continuous dialogue and the exchange of knowledge between all stakeholders while ensuring that better outcomes for patients are central to the activities of HTA bodies as they meet their remits. But realization of this approach has been slow. The HTAi 2022 Annual Meeting will offer a global platform to deepen awareness of the consequences of a lifecycle approach to HTA from pre-market, market approval, post-market and disinvestment; improve knowledge of suitable methods and processes; strengthen connections across stakeholders; and prioritize activities.
