Principles for deliberative processes in health technology assessment

Summary: Deliberative processes are a well-established part of health technology assessment (HTA) programs in a number of high- and middle-income countries, and serve to combine complex sets of evidence, perspectives, and values to support open, transparent, and accountable decision making. Nevertheless, there is little documentation and research to inform the development of effective and efficient deliberative processes, and to evaluate their quality. This article provides a summary of discussions on deliberative processes in HTA and a set of core principles developed by members at the HTAi Global Policy Forum meeting held 26–28 January 2020 in New Orleans.
