Webinar “Transferability of economic evaluations”

 

We are pleased to invite you to the next Webex of RedETSA, on Friday, November 10, at 11 am, Washington DC time.

Victoria Hurtado Meneses and Catherine De la Puente Agurto, Ministry of Health of Chile, will give a presentation on “Transferability of economic evaluations”.

A methodology for Economic Evaluation (EE) transferability is proposed to inform decision makers about the cost-effectiveness of a health alternative in a timely manner. This methodology could be specially useful for countries that have limited economic resources to develop research, and could also relieve the existing rush that the authorities have when requesting this type of information.

The construction of a “de novo” study continues to be the gold standard to provide valid evidence on the cost-effectiveness of a health intervention. However, there are scenarios where health technologies were evaluated in several countries and there is enough evidence of their cost-effectiveness. It is in these cases that the use of the methodology for EE transferability would be most useful, so that the response given to the decision makers is based on solid evidence and can be given in a short period of time.

Webinar: Particularities in the evaluation and incorporation of Medical Devices

We are pleased to invite you to the next RedETSA Webinar, Friday, October 13, at 11am, Washington DC time.

Murilo Contó, National Consultant for Health Technology Assessment and Management PAHO / WHO will give a presentation on “Particularities in the evaluation and incorporation of Medical Devices”.

Considering the peculiarities and differences that medical devices possess in relation to other health technologies, the webinar aims to address the main aspects that must be observed when a Health Technology Assessment involves the use of a medical device or equipment, reducing uncertainty in the decision-making process.

Webinar – Big Data and Real World Evidence

‘’Big data and Real World Evidence’’

On Friday, May 26th Augusto Afonso Guerra Jr. of the General University of Minas Gerais,  from the the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) in Brazil, gave a presentation on “Big data and Real World Evidence “

The aim of the webinar was to explore the importance of the origin of the data in health technology assessments. The webinar discussed the difference between randomized clinical trials (RCTs) and real-world evidence (RWE) in the use of administrative and epidemiological databases to measure effectiveness. Although RWE can be very complex, it provides an understanding of health settings which is difficult to achieve through RCTs. This RWE could serve to ensure that health systems are achieving the expected results through the incorporation of health technologies. Afonso Guerra Jr. used a case study from Brazil of Big Data in the evaluation of health technologies.

Health Technology Management Webinars

‘’Health Technology Management Webinars’’

 

The Health Technology Program at PAHO/HQ has collaborated with Tobey Clark, Director of Technical Services Partnership at University of Vermont in order to deliver two Health Technology Management Webinars.

The first webinar was on May 15, 2017, titled Health Technology Planning and Management. The webinar highlighted the basic understanding of the principles of healthcare technology planning and management – assessment, budgeting, acquisition, deployment, education/training, patient safety, maintenance, and replacement/disposal. Planning and management focused on medical devices, clinical information systems, and converged systems incorporating medical devices, networks and telecommunications.

Webinar – “Health technology disinvestment – the case of Insulin Glargine in Ecuador.”

“Health technology disinvestment – the case of Insulin Glargine in Ecuador”

 

On Friday, April 21st, at 11 am (Washington D.C.), Christian Gavilanes Castellanos, Andrea Sánchez and Ruth Lucio, from the Ministry of Health, Ecuador, gave a presentation on “Health technology disinvestment – the case of Insulina Glargina in Ecuador . ”

The aim of the webinar was to explore the issue of disinvestment, which is a potential outcome of HTA, and how it can provide greater access to the population to technologies that demonstrate efficacy and safety. The presentation provided an example of the experience of the Ecuadorian Ministry of Public Health in divesting in Insuline Glargine. 

In 2015, after the modification of criteria for inclusion of active principles in the National Basic Medicines Chart (el Cuadro Nacional de Medicamentos Básicos, CNMB in Spanish), a review was made of several drugs that had been included in previous versions, including Insulin Glargine. Based on new scientific evidence, it was concluded that the efficacy of GI is similar to that of drugs already incorporated for the same indication. Based on these conclusions, Insulin Glargine was divested and its exclusion from CNMB.”
