Health Technology Assessments
for the Swiss Medical Board

We perform Health Technology Assessments (HTAs) for the Swiss Medical Board, in cooperation with units at the Universities of Basel and Geneva. Our contributions focus on the health economic characteristics (cost-effectiveness, budget impact) of medical strategies. Another part of the project is the development of HTA methodology approrpriate for Switzerland.
