Welcome

INTEGRATE-HTA is an innovative, three-year FP7 project that ended in December 2015. Using palliative care as a case study, this project aimed to develop concepts and methods that enable a patient-centred, comprehensive assessment of complex health technologies.

In total, the project led to the following six guidances:

  • Guidance on the integrated assessment of complex health technologies – The INTEGRATE-HTA Model
  • Guidance for assessing effectiveness, economic aspects, ethical aspects, socio-cultural aspects and legal aspects in complex technologies
  • Guidance for the assessment of treatment moderation and patients’ preferences
  • Guidance for the Assessment of Context and Implementation in Health Technology Assessments (HTA) and Systematic Reviews of Complex Interventions: The Context and Implementation of Complex Interventions (CICI) Framework
  • Guidance on the use of logic models in health technology assessments of complex interventions
  • Guidance on choosing qualitative evidence synthesis methods for use in health technology assessments of complex interventions

All developed methods and concepts were applied in a case study on palliative care, which is described in the Case Study Report: Integrated assessment of home based palliative care with and without reinforced caregiver support: ‘A demonstration of INTEGRATE-HTA methodological guidances’ – Executive Summary.
