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 2023, the rate of acceptance of recommendations to the Ministry of Health on medical devices and health-care services since FY 2011/2012 to FY 2022/23 is 69%. The rate of acceptance for FY 2022-23 is 0% and recommendations remain under review. The rate of implementation/adoption of accepted recommendations is 96%.
