Putting patients at the heart of Annual Meeting HTAi and its Patient and Citizen Involvement in HTA Interest Group’s (PCIG) have supported and encouraged patient participation at the annual meetings for several years. Now a working group is aiming to improve the experiences of patients who take part.
Since 2003, HTAi has held a yearly Annual Meeting providing opportunities for our members to gather to share the latest research, advance discussions in policy and methods, and build global networks around HTA. Ask anyone who has been lucky enough to attend an Annual Meeting and they will tell you it is a 5-day event packed with thought-provoking and cutting-edge conversations. It is also a chance to meet and learn from peers and leading experts in the HTA field.
The HTAi 2021 Annual Meeting, originally planned as a hybrid event with an in-person component to take place in Manchester, UK, will be held entirely virtual in June, 2021. Following a virtual Annual Meeting in 2020, HTAi had hoped to hold a hybrid Annual Meeting in 2021, which in addition to the virtual setting would have allowed an in-person component of the event taking place in Manchester, UK. With remaining worldwide uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic and concern for participant welfare a priority, the Society made the difficult but essential decision to transition the 2021 Annual Meeting to an entirely virtual platform.

The Deliberative Processes for HTA Joint Task Force is an HTAi - ISPOR initiative to develop a consensus definition for a deliberative process from an HTA perspective and internationally recognized good practise recommendations on the use of deliberative processes in HTA.
HTAi has outlined a three-point approach for supporting evidence generation collaborations, and policy decision making consistencies, including a response team to focus on topic-specific areas of interest and potentially lead and develop projects specifically focused on questions of relevance to the HTA community; webinars to support international collaboration and discussions on common current and horizon issues; online resources to share publicly available content from members.
