An important part of the Agency for Health Technology Assessment and Tariff System’s work is the assessment of medicines. The issued recommendations/positions and opinions concern mostly medicinal products. Medicine technologies are evaluated by the Agency under a commission of the Minister of Health.
The medicinal products assessment guidelines (version 3.0) (Wytyczne oceny produktów leczniczych (wersja 3.0) indicate how a medicine should be assessed:
- what each analysis should contain, and
- how they should be prepared.
Thanks to the guidelines, the quality of analyses is high and the reimbursement process is standardised for all medicines. This assures that a given assessment of a medicinal product is reliable.
