Health Technology Assessment

The Health Technology Assessment research group is responsible for the research programs in the field of health economics, in particular the so-called health technology assessment (HTA). This involves determining the implications of introducing, distributing and applying (new) medical technologies and assessing the resulting health gain. HTA aims to form a bridge between research and policy. Another important research theme in which the research group plays a leading role nationally and internationally, concerns the measurement and comparison of equality in the distribution of and access to care.
