The purpose of Health Technology Assessment (HTA) is to ensure medical treatments and services paid for with state health care dollars are safe and proven effective. HTA uses an independent clinical committee of health care practitioners to review evidenced-based reports and make a determination if the state should pay for the medical device, procedure or test. Recommendations made by the clinical committee have the potential to impact payment for services that hospitals may provide. (Ian Corbridge)
