The C-19 HTA Response webinar series provides a platform for discussion with member-driven content. The webinars are a mix of plenary-style presentations and open dialogue.
HTAi aims to consider each timezone, and all sessions will be recorded for subsequent viewing. Each webinar is approximately 90-minutes long.

Webinar Two: Evaluating Rapid Digitization in Hospital Settings
As global health systems have and continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a critical need for wide spread and rapid uptake of digital transformation within Hospital and Clinical Practice Settings. Thousands of clinicians around the world have swiftly migrated their clinical practices to provide telehealth consultations, set up and adopt the use of electronic medical records, overhaul record transfer processes, and completely adapt the way that patient outcome data is collected.
The questions we ask now: what worked well, and what didn’t? Were technologies adopted properly and how should hospitals go about assessing the adoption of technologies? Are there global consistencies, and opportunities for shared learning and collaboration?
Driven by the HTAi Hospital Based HTA Interest Group, the goal of this webinar is to dig in to this discussion on digital transformation using national examples, with a focus on:
- Assessment of the value of digital transformation at hospital level
- Indication for quality measurement of digital transformation
- Measurement of the economic impact in hospital settings
- Evaluation techniques for adapting digital transformation at the hospital level, based on the needs caused by COVID-19: Examples from Danish setting
- Evaluate transferability to real practice, multidisciplinary evaluations
- Adoption process and impact of digital transformation

Webinar Three: Patients in COVID-19
Webinar Four: Trial Standards, Real World Evidence, and Data Collection
Webinar One: What is the role of Health Technology Assessment during COVID-19?
COVID-19 is a highly infectious virus and currently has no accepted treatment. The global pandemic is overwhelming health systems and driving an urgent need for every type of health technology, including preventatives (PPE), diagnostic tests, devices (e.g. ventilators), therapies, and vaccines. The urgency and severity of this crisis has created a large global effort to find solutions as quickly as possible. As these technologies are produced, how can their efficacy, safety, cost, environment impacts, social impacts, and legal impacts be assessed reliably and ethically in the face of immediate crisis?
This webinar explored the international role of Health Technology Assessments in response to COVID-19, both immediately and in the months to come.
