Health Technology Wales offers research support in response to COVID-19

We’re working with partners in health and social care to support the response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

We’re inviting COVID-19 related research questions, evidence reviews and requests for economics support.

Organisations involved in Health Technology Assessments (HTA), guidelines and economic modelling are also invited to collaborate and share resources with us.

Dr Susan Myles, Director of Health Technology Wales, said: “We welcome opportunities to collaborate with peer organisations and we’re already talking to fellow HTA bodies about the ways we can collaborate. As we respond to the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation, it’s imperative that we share information with decision makers as quickly as possible.”

A dedicated webpage has been launched to detail our activities and visitors can access information at: www.healthtechnology.wales/covid-19.

We can also provide:

  • Rapid evidence summaries and reviews on emerging evidence for COVID-19 diagnostics and therapeutics
  • Free advice to technology developers and companies who are developing therapeutics and diagnostics related to COVID-19, including advice on evidence collection, evidence generation and economic modelling.

We’ve also produced a digest of websites which collate or synthesize evidence related to COVID-19. The quick-guide will be updated regularly.
