Full Submission Support

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

  • Systematic literature review of clinical efficacy and safety
  • Evidence synthesis (mixed treatment comparison, conventional meta-analysis)
  • Systematic literature reviews of published economic models, resource use and health related quality of life
  • Burden of illness reviews
  • Economic modelling (cost-effectiveness and budget impact)
  • Patient reported outcomes
