Ankyloglossia and chlamydia/gonorrhea testing evaluations initiated in Norway
Norway established in 2013 a framework for the introduction of innovations into the health care system through either a national or hospital-based health technology assessment. This framework is called the “New Method.”
In this framework, all innovations should undergo HTA before being funded. If the method concerns only one or two hospitals, the assessment shall be initiated by clinicians and ran at the hospital level. The final report is disseminated via a mini-HTA database. If the method is of national concern, it undergoes Single Technology Appraisal at the national level, followed by the funding decision by the group of payers (Decision Forum, Beslutningsforum).
In November 2019, the two new mini-method assessments were initiated by Oslo University:
- Evaluation of tongue-tie known as ankyloglossia
- Evaluation of rapid testing for chlamydia and gonorrhea
After the completion of the assessment procedure, the final reports would be available here.
