Evaluating our impact
Health Technology Wales is committed to monitoring and evaluating our work. To do this, we developed an Evaluation Plan and processes to capture data, monitor our outcomes and evaluate what difference our work makes.
Here are some key HTW achievements to date:
Latest case studies
One of the first tasks Health Technology Wales (HTW) undertook in response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak was to create an ‘evidence digest.’
Since cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) started to be confirmed in the United Kingdom, Health Technology Wales (HTW) has been producing rapid reports on the emerging evidence for diagnostics and therapeutics.
In March 2018, we organised and hosted a workshop entitled ‘NICE Guidance: from on the website to on the ground.’ The purpose of the workshop was to learn about and share ideas on optimising the use of NICE guidance in Wales, from dissemination to implementation.
"I welcome the progress made by Health Technology Wales in its first year. They are delivering high-quality evidence-informed advice to our health boards on a range of non-medicine technologies. This is important work that will ensure our health service in Wales is at the forefront of modern technology."
Vaughan Gething AM, Minister for Health and Social Services
“The right people are looking at the right evidence appraisals. They were very responsive and reflected many of our comments in the final appraisal.”
"Many thanks for this very helpful input this year... it has certainly improved the robustness of the decisions and also informed us where the gaps in evidence are."
Helen Howson, Director, Bevan Commission
“In my honest opinion, health services need such high quality health technology appraisals now more than ever in order to develop and deliver clinical- and cost-effective care.”
"A huge amount of value, evidence and rigour was added to the Health Tech Exemplar application and assessment process by having HTW join the panel."
Tom James, Head of Innovation and Industry Engagement, Welsh Government
