Technology Assessment at SickKids (TASK)

Welcome to Technology Assessment at SickKids (TASK)

Health technology assessment (HTA) consists of the appraisal of emerging health care technologies including medications, medical devices, medical and surgical procedures, education, prevention and rehabilitation interventions and vaccines among others.

The purpose of HTA is to develop the tools and methodologies to generate the best quality evidence on the medical, social, and ethical implications of investments in health care in order to inform payers, decision-makers, health practitioners, researchers, patients and their families.
