The Health Technology Assessment (HTA) is a crucial process for decision-making in health for the adoption of new technologies, which must consider aspects of safety, efficacy, effectiveness, equity, costs, among others. These evaluations can be carried out from a macro level by national entities or from a meso or local level by health institutions, the latter being known as hospital-based technology evaluation or HTA-BH.
