In the fourth quarter of 2023, two new health technology assessments were initiated by the Agency for Health Technology Assessment and Tariff System (AOTMiT). The assessments belong to the cardiovascular and neurovascular technology groups.

On November 21, 2023, the AOTMiT initiated the evaluation of the monitoring of cardiac activity and therapy of dangerous ventricular arrhythmias using a defibrillation vest within the preparation of the recommendation for the possible inclusion in the list of guaranteed services in the field of outpatient specialist care.

On the same day, the Agency initiated the evaluation of the treatment of the acute phase of ischemic stroke with transcatheter mechanical thrombectomy of intracerebral or intracranial vessels within the preparation of recommendations on the validity of qualifications for the provision of this healthcare service. On November 29, 2023, the position of the Transparency Council was published, in which it was outlined that the Council considers it justified to qualify the above-mentioned healthcare service as a guaranteed service in the field of hospital treatment.

The AOTMiT is a consultative and advisory entity supervised by the Minister of Health (MoH). The role of the Agency is to assist the MoH in the decision-making process with regard to the financing of medicines and medical technologies in the healthcare system.
