EUnetHTA JA3 is organized into three horizontal work packages (WP1-3), and four core work packages (WP4-7). The core work packages will deliver products needed for a sustainable HTA network like quality joint assessments, evidence generation, quality management and focus on implementation of this model on national, regional and local levels. The horizontal work packages will coordinate the Joint Assessment, disseminate its results and evaluate the main objective of this Joint Assessment.
Core Work Packages:
Work Package 4 Joint Production
This work package focuses on the production of joint health technology assessments. The joint assessments should be fit for purpose, of high quality, of timely availability, and cover the whole range of health technologies.
Work Package 5 Evidence Generation
Work Package 5 will support developers of medical technologies (pharmaceuticals, medical devices and diagnostics) by providing a collaborative approach between a wide range of European HTA agencies on their product development plans.
The exchange of different perspectives, learning, efficiency, and consistency throughout Early dialogues will optimize the interaction with regulators for pharmaceuticals and medical devices. A tool to support permanent collaboration on post-launch evidence generation will be delivered in this work package.
Work Package 6 Quality Management, Scientific Guidance and Tools
Work Package 6 will develop and establish quality management for the Health Technology Assessment collaboration at an European level in order to improve efficiency and quality of outcomes. This will favour its adaptation at national and on EU level. This will be done by maintaining joint work and by provision and development of necessary tools and methodologies for joint work – in particular production of HTA information at EU level.
Work Package 7 National implementation and impact
Work Package 7 supports the production of a sustainable model by making the implementation mechanism facilitate uptake and implementation in national, regional and local settings.
