To promote health care supported by the best evidence, we use established scientific methods to analyze evidence and develop assessments of new and existing health care services and medical devices.
These reviews, called health technology assessments, also include recommendations on whether these services and devices should be publicly funded. As of September 2020, the Ministry of Health has accepted 96% (81) of the 84 recommendations it has completed reviewing. For fiscal year (FY) 2020/2021, four recommendations were made and remain under review by the Ministry of Health. For FY 2021/2022, fourteen recommendations were made and remain under review by the Ministry of Health. Of the recommendations reviewed by the Ministry of Health that support funding a technology, 69 (90%) have been implemented.
