There is increasing emphasis on providing patient-focused health care and ensuring patient involvement in the design of health services. As health technology assessment (HTA) is meant to be a multidisciplinary, wide-ranging policy analysis that informs decision making, it would be expected that patients’ views should be incorporated into the assessment. However, HTA is still driven by collection of quantitative evidence to determine the clinical and cost effectiveness of a health technology… 
EUPATI Guidance for Patient Involvement in Medicines Research and Development: Health Technology Assessment
TLDR
The guidance text presented in this article was developed as part of the work of the European Patients' Academy on Therapeutic Innovation (EUPATI) and covers the interaction between HTA bodies and patients and their representatives when medicines are being assessed.
Involvement of Patients in Health Technology Assessment: Further Perspectives for Informing Decision-Makers
TLDR
Health technology assessment (HTA) is an evaluative process used to inform technology-related policymaking in healthcare and patients can provide additional perspectives to those of other groups that are concerned with health technology.
WHY PATIENTS SHOULD BE INVOLVED IN HEALTH TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT
TLDR
An HTA process that includes patient perspectives can, therefore, provide added value to patients, policy makers and healthcare professionals alike.
Developing Guidance on Ethics for Patient Groups Collecting and Reporting Patient Information for Health Technology Assessments
TLDR
Patient perspectives are sought through patient submissions, which usually take the form of responses to questions designed to elicit information not found in the published literature, such as patients’ and caregivers’ needs, preferences and experiences.
Patient advocacy group involvement in health technology assessments: an observational study
TLDR
The expectations of patient involvement in the reimbursement process, especially among cancer patient advocacy groups (PAGs) in New Zealand (Aotearoa), South Korea and Taiwan, are surveyed to understand their experiences and expectations of involving patients in HTA.
Putting Patients at the Centre of Healthcare: Progress and Challenges for Health Technology Assessments
TLDR
It is imperative that it is clarified when patient involvement is likely to add value and support patients to provide their unique knowledge in the most optimal way to influence HTA decision making.
Patient advocate perspectives on involvement in HTA: an international snapshot

    Research Involvement and Engagement
  • 2017
TLDR
Although considerable progress has been made in terms of engaging patients and patient groups in HTA, gaps remain in how involvement is supported, including facilitating involvement, clarity on roles, two-way flow of information, and methods for enhancing communication between patient organisations and HTA agencies.
Patient involvement in HTA: What added value?
  • K. Facey
  • Medicine, Political Science
  • 2011
TLDR
Patients’ perspectives could be particularly valuable to bring a real-life understanding of the potential impact of the health technology and consideration of ethical, organizational and social issues are vital.
Exploring Qualitative Research Synthesis
TLDR
Qualitative research synthesis enables researchers to synthesize findings from multiple qualitative studies on patients’ perspectives instead of establishing new, expensive, and perhaps redundant studies that might intrude on the lives of patients.
PUBLIC AND PATIENT INVOLVEMENT IN HEALTH TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT: A FRAMEWORK FOR ACTION
TLDR
A public and patient involvement framework has been developed for implementation in a government agency’s HTA process and core elements of this framework may apply to other organizations responsible for HTA and health system quality improvement.

TLDR
By asking patient-oriented questions in HTA and better involving patients throughout the entire process, the authors can easily promote patient empowerment, and as such make patients more capable to play a more active role in healthcare decision making.
