According to the statutory definition, health technology means medicinal products, devices, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures used in certain indications, as well as organizational support systems within which healthcare services are provided.
Matters of health technology assessment are governed by two legal acts:
- the Act of 27 August 2004 on healthcare services financed from public funds and
- the Act of 12 May 2011 on the reimbursement of medicinal products, foodstuffs for particular nutritional purposes and medical devices.
Due to differences in the approach to the assessment of drug and non-drug technologies, health technologies are assessed by two departments of the Agency:
- Health Technology Assessment Department and
- Services Department.
The former specializes in drug technology assessment, while the latter specializes in non-drug technology assessment. Details on the methodological solutions for the assessments performed, along with their results, are available under separate tabs.
Please refer to the Public Information Bulletin for documents regarding the substantive scope currently being processed.
