Abstract

Objectives: To promote the further development of HTA, this study aims to design a model for HTA priority setting, which would address national needs for a country with little experience in the field of HTA, and assess its feasibility for the health system. Methods: Literature search and review, as well as qualitative research have been used in the design and testing of the model for HTA priority setting. To test the model and the methodology, a three-round Delphi study was conducted in 2011 in the form of an electronic questionnaire, which was distributed to the panel of eleven national experts. The panel was composed of experts representing various fields of the health care sector: policy-makers, health care service professionals and academics, with diverse professional roles. Results: The designed model consists of four stages: (i) selection of experts for the panel, (ii) indication and selection of health policy topics, (iii) identification of health technologies, and (iv) priority setting. Three rounds of the Delphi study were performed to test the model and reach expert consensus on a list of health technologies for assessment, including pharmaceuticals, vaccines, medical devices, diagnostic methods, public health interventions, organizational systems, etc. Conclusions: Based on the Delphi technique as a method for consensus building, the model for HTA priority setting was developed for Lithuania; however, it could also be used for other countries with little experience in the field of HTA.
