Health Technology Assessment is an innovative program that determines if health services used by state government are safe and effective.

The primary goals are to make:

  • Health care safer by relying on scientific evidence and a committee of practicing clinicians
  • Coverage decisions of state agencies more consistent
  • State purchased health care more cost effective by paying for medical tools and procedures that are proven to work
  • Coverage decision process more open and inclusive by sharing information, holding public meetings, and publishing decision criteria and outcomes
