■Summary of this meeting
There has recently been more and more movement toward the introduction of Health Technology Assessments (HTA) to the health care policy making process in light of increased healthcare costs.
In Japan, a trial introduction of cost-effectiveness evaluations within the drug and medical device approval process was started following the FY2016 Revision of Medical Fee.
In order to construct a sustainable health care system that meets global standards, Japan must utilize the limited resources available to it as efficiently and effectively as possible and maximize the value attainable from healthcare services.

Building upon the previous meeting, this Breakfast Meeting covers HTA with more focus on its global trend in development of HTA along with technological innovation in healthcare, and role of public, private, and academic partnership.
