Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) offers a comprehensive decision-making framework that allows for multi-disciplinary factors to be considered in a methodologically rigorous manner. The role of MCDA is not to substitute the role of traditional health technology assessment (HTA), which includes clinical and cost-effectiveness assessment, but to supplement it with other key considerations that play an important role in health care decision making.
This symposium will present the limitations of the traditional HTA approach for decision making and provide an overview of the MCDA framework. Examples of HTA decisions from various jurisdictions which use MCDA or an MCDA-type approach in tandem with traditional HTA will be showcased.
