Assessment of above cuff vocalization initiated in April 2019 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 national level followed by the funding decision by the group of payers (Decision Forum, Beslutningsforum).
In April 2019, the new mini-HTA project regarding above cuff vocalization (ACV) was initiated by Oslo University Hospital.
After completion of the assessment, hospital management will make a decision about funding of studied technology in a particular hospital.
