Genre: Law

Das Buch befasst sich mit den weltweit laufenden Bemühungen, Health Technology Assessment (HTA) im Gesundheitswesen zu etablieren. Der Autor stellt die historische Entwicklung von HTA dar und präsentiert eine sorgfältige Definition des Begriffes. Dazu gehört eine kritische Auseinandersetzung mit den Grundprinzipien von HTA sowie der damit verknüpften rechtlichen Aspekte. Neben Aufbau und Unterarten von HTAs wird zudem ein Lösungsansatz vorgestellt, um HTA-Arten klar voneinander abzugrenzen. Ein Grossteil der Arbeit umfasst eine zugängliche Einführung in die an HTA beteiligten Disziplinen. Zudem werden ausgewählte nationale und internationale HTA-Agenturen porträtiert. Überlegungen zur „Best-Practice“ und ein dreistufiger Lösungsansatz zur Implementation von HTA runden das Werk ab. Es ist das erste Werk, dass sich in so ganzheitlicher Weise mit der Thematik auseinandersetzt.
