HAS is undertaking a public consultation on ‘methodological choices for the assessment of efficiency’.
Through its work, the HAS – Haute Autorité de Santé (High Authority of Health) aims to provide long-term and equitable access to appropriate, safe and effective care and support. As such, the assessment of efficiency is a central focus of the HAS.
In 2011, HAS published the first version of the methodological guide, which explained the principles the HAS relies on to conduct and evaluate efficiency assessments, whether in the context of public health assessments carried out by HAS or, since 2013, as part of the efficiency evaluations issued by the CEESP – Commission Évaluation Économique et de Santé Publique (Economic and Public Health Evaluation Committee).
On the 11th of June 2019, the CEESP validated an updated second provisional version of the methodological guide.
The purpose of the consultation is to open a dialogue and create a space for scientific exchanges on the methodological principles HAS uses to evaluate efficiency of a technology or a health programme.
The objectives of the consultation are to finalise the language used for the methodological recommendations (adjusting for clarity), and to collect opinions on:
- the level of agreement with the recommendations made
- the conformity of methodological choices with the state of theoretical and technical knowledge
- the applicability of methodological choices
The consultation can be contributed to here until 9th August 2019.
