Strengthening the Evidence-to-Action Connection

With terms such as “fake news”, “alternative facts”, and “post-truth” now in common parlance, it is more important than ever that researchers, policymakers, health care practitioners, technology developers, patients, and the public affirm their commitment to action based on evidence and collaborative approaches that will strengthen the evidence-to-action connection. The HTAI 2018 Annual meeting will provide an unparalleled opportunity to consider, debate and clarify the role of health technology assessment (HTA) in the health care ecosystem.


With three plenary sessions that all support the conference’s overarching theme of Strengthening the Evidence-to-Action Connection, the HTAi 2018 Annual Meeting will be a must-attend event for those in the global HTA community to consider and debate:

  • how HTA needs to change its approach to generating, synthesizing and presenting evidence in order to remain relevant in a rapidly changing world;
  • what is required to enable the implementation of evidence into evidence-informed policies and practices, and
  • what can be done to strengthen and accelerate the evidence-to-action connection.

As the leading global discussion platform for all stakeholders engaged in the efficient production and use of HTAs in decision-making, HTAi supports and promotes the development, communication, understanding and use of HTA around the world as a scientifically-based and interdisciplinary means of informing decision making on the use of effective technologies and the efficient use of resources in health care. HTAi welcomes all stakeholders – patients/consumers, health care providers, academic researchers, HTA agencies, payers, policy makers, industry – to join us.
