Five take away lessons from the XIV HTAi conference

  1. How to use Gradepro and GRADE for health technology assessment. — this is a big theme. GRADE was talked and discussed in a big way in many sessions. I conducted my own workshop on GRADEpro and I was happy to see a fair turnout for the session and several questions, suggestions, ideas, etc pop up.
  2. Genomics and Gene for HTA. —
  3. New search strategies. —
  4. Nutrition and public health approaches as HTA. —
  5. Role of big data and new approaches towards HTA. — Ina Kopp and Christopher Chutes keynote addresses are useful.
