4. Dissemination



The dissemination of findings and recommendations and monitoring of impact may or may not be part of the HTA itself, but a separate responsibility of a designated organisation.

In most cases, an HTA report may need to be communicated to people who are not familiar with the details of clinical research or economic evaluation. Depending on the organisation of the HTA body and its relation with decision-makers, the HTA report may need to be conveyed in different formats – such as in print, face-to-face presentation, or both – and may or may not require peer review. How information is presented, and the degree of technical language used may depend on whether it is for a committee of experts or directly for a decision-maker.
