Topics reviewed by the HTA program may be proposed by anyone. A formal topic selection process is conducted each year, to identify technologies for future assessment. At any time, stakeholders and organizations may suggest topics by submitting a petition for health technology review or re-review.
Throughout each technology assessment, public comment periods are opened to receive feedback from stakeholders and interested parties. These opportunities occur following the publication of the:
