This is now being reported on the EUnetHTA website. "National uptake" is defined as the general implementation of any EUnetHTA output (i.e. joint assessments, submission templates, guidelines, POP Database, HTA Core Model®, etc.) in a local (national/regional) setting. No instances are listed.
They are also monitoring "National adaptation", defined as a specific type of national uptake, i.e. the use of the EUnetHTA joint assessment results in national/regional setting. The purpose of national adaptation is to avoid duplication, to promote good practices in HTA processes and to effectively use time and financial resources. The minimum requirement for a national adaptation is inclusion of a explicit reference to the EUnetHTA joint assessment on which the local report was based. There are six instances listed; 3 in Austria, 1 in Croatia, 1 in Norway and 1 in The Netherlands.
Is this a cost-effective use of resources?
