YHEC has a proven track record of creating all of the materials for a health technology assessment (HTA) submission, as well as preparing the submission document itself. As such, we can seamlessly integrate the following into the submission dossier:

  • Systematic literature reviews
  • Evidence synthesis (mixed treatment comparison, conventional meta-analysis)
  • Burden of illness reviews
  • Economic modelling (cost-effectiveness and budget impact)
  • Patient reported outcomes

An infographic that describes the four ways that YHEC can support a full HTA submission: 1) planning and strategy, 2) evidence generation plan, 3) dossier develoment, 4) post-submission supportYHEC regularly prepares dossiers for submission to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in whichever programme a medical device is routed to.  We have vast experience of submissions to both the Medical Technologies Evaluation Programme (MTEP) and the Technology appraisal (TA) programme and have also supported submissions to the Diagnostic Appraisal Programme (DAP).  YHEC also has experience of working on submissions to other major international agencies.
