Abstract

Health technology assessment (HTA) in France covers a variety of activities performed for different customers (e.g., health professionals in the field and policy makers in government) for the benefit of patients. To promote the improvement of quality in health care, France has set up a series of distinct agencies that report to the Ministry of Health but are also accountable to their other customers. We place particular emphasis on ANAES (National Agency for Accreditation and Evaluation in Health) whose main remit is HTA. We show how the diversity of HTA activities and their decentralization suggests tight collaboration among all the different bodies which perform HTA or are closely involved with HTA, and we provide examples of such collaboration.
