Abstract

The first Italian experiences of HTA are born inside single hospitals and, lately, regional health care systems. In Italy, anyway, no agency had health technology assessment as an institutional dutie until 2007, the year of the founding of the Italian Society of Health Technology Assessment (SIHTA). In times of "spending review", the HTA, whose purpose is to make decisions about health technologies rational and consistent with a context of scarce resources, is increasingly emerging as a priority need of the National Health System. The objective of this paper is to analyze if and how the librarian is involved in the process of health technology assessment, analyzing the results of a survey performed at a selection of Italian research organizations. The analysis of the results shows that the Italian situation is still very varied, from the point of view of HTA, and health technologies are often introduced without any preliminary analysis. The librarian is almost never represented within the HTA evaluation group and his/her knowledge of HTA should be improved.
