The HTA Core Model® is a methodological framework for production and sharing of HTA information. The HTA Core Model® is a registered trademark.
The model consists of the following three components, each with a specific purpose:
1. A standardised set of HTA questions (the ontology) allow users to define their specific research questions within a hierarchical structure.
2. Methodological guidance to assist in answering the research questions.
3. A common reporting structure for presenting findings in a standardised “question-answer pair” format.
The Guiding Principles on the HTA Core Model Use provide the basic functionality of the Model’s application in various settings.
The HTA Core Model is accessible free of charge but subject to the HTA Core Model Licence.

Various formats of the Core Model can be accessed through the HTA Core Model Online Website.
