stanovisko EHSV: Health technology assessment

Key points:

The EESC:

  • agrees that the aim of sustainable cooperation on health technology assessment (HTA) at EU level is to ensure that all the EU countries can benefit from efficiency gains, thus maximising added value;
  • believes that the proposal should benefit SMEs, as well as social economy enterprises operating in the sector, by reducing the current administrative burden and compliance costs linked to submissions of multiple dossiers to meet different national HTA requirements;
  • recommends that the regulation mention preventive measures such as support for hospitals in monitoring hospital-acquired infections and in their prevention and reduction, and that the scope of the regulation should be broadened to include such measures.
