2018 CADTH Symposium
Managing Health Technologies: Supporting Appropriate, Affordable, and Accessible Care
April 15 to 17, 2018

Every year, the effective management of health technologies grows more challenging. The number and complexity of new drugs, medical devices and surgical procedures continues to grow, and while there are processes to manage the introduction of new technologies, there are few processes for the managed exit of technologies. In addition, the advent of combination products has blurred the line between medical devices and pharmaceuticals and has created the need for new assessment methodologies. Fiscal pressures mean health funders are concerned not just with value but also with affordability. There is also a growing demand from patients and clinicians for information and tools to support decisions about access and appropriate use of health technologies.

At the 2018 CADTH Symposium, Canadian and international experts will discuss what is being done — and what still needs to be done — to transform the way we manage health technologies to support appropriate use, affordability, and accessible care.
