Paper Abstract

Increased scrutiny of health care technologies is accompanied by greater attention to the quality of the information upon which technology policy decisions are made. In particular, there is greater understanding of, and demand for, technology evaluation methods that embody greater scientific rigor. Methods for evaluating health care technologies can be divided roughly into two main groups: primary data collection methods and synthetic or integrative methods. Improved understanding by analysts and policy makers of the relative strengths and weaknesses of these methods is improving the design and conduct of technology evaluations, as well as the interpretation of study findings for use in health care decision making.
