HB HTA at the hospital level is constantly transforming, its role is taking more relevance inside and outside its organization.  The annual business session is organized by the Hospital-Based HTAi interest group, with the goal to present its recent and future activities where members from the group and newcomers can actively be involved. Those activities will cover current and future needs from experts on the field. This business session is based on presenting our first proposal of online workshops, where we are looking for an extensive collaboration from members and non-members to improve our practice, from the involvement and alignment on the interests with national HTAs or other institutions based on strategic and political decisions, resources implication and collaboration (clinical trials or protocols), with special attention on Covid-19 period to the impact of HB-HTA evaluation on decision making or current practice; having the opportunity to present real cases/practice to the society. Also, the possibility to present the methodologies used on your assessments, and the adoption of tools as GRADE, AdHopHTA, or MAST. Those workshops can lead to a collaboration on writing scientific articles within members.

Moreover, it will be presented two opened positions inside the executive team, where members actively propose and define needs and strategies in alignment with the HTAi Organization.

We are looking forward to seeing you online, and since this session starting to provide with your contributions, we are also welcomed to answer your doubts. Obviously, always welcoming new members where its main motivation is sharing knowledge or with the spirit to learn in order to accomplish our main goal: provide to patients healthcare based on equity quality and efficiency.
