The Philippine HTA Process Guide is a reference document detailing the general steps employed by the HTA Unit of the Department of Health in conducting health technology assessments. It aims to provide structure, transparency and clarity in the processes followed by the HTA committee and its subcommittees when undertaking a health technology appraisal. It also aims to ensure that the HTAC and the HTA Unit are properly guided in the effective discharge of their functions and responsibilities. At the same time, it serves as a guide for the stakeholders in terms of the roles and participation in the processes.
The Philippine HTA Process Guide is an annex of the Administrative Order with the title “The New Implementing Guidelines on Health Technology Assessment to Guide Funding Allocation and Coverage Decisions in support of Universal Health Care”.
