COVID-19 technologies & HTA from Health Technology Wales

COVID-19 technologies & Health Technology Wales

Health Technology Wales is identifying COVID-19 related technology topics by using HealthTech Connect.

HTW develops Topic Exploration Reports (TERs) on relevant technologies to:

  • Determine the quantity and quality of evidence available for the technology of interest.
  • Identify any gaps in the evidence/ongoing evidence collection.
  • Inform decisions on topics that warrant fuller assessment.

The information is shared with key stakeholders in Welsh Government and NHS Wales to inform their decision making during the COVID-19 pandemic. These outputs are also being regularly shared with other stakeholders in the UK via HealthTech Connect, and with HTA bodies nationally and internationally via the International Network of Agencies for Health Technology Assessment (INAHTA). Sharing information and expertise in this way helps to avoid duplication and maximise the global research response to COVID-19.
