Ongoing HTA assessments in Swedish Västra Götaland region

In Sweden, the County Councils are grouped into six healthcare regions to facilitate cooperation and to maintain a high level of advanced medical care. One of them is Västra Götaland County Council with its Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Center, which aimed to work for the continuous development of knowledge-based care in the region and ensure that healthcare is supported by science and evaluation. Also, it should follow up on the development of evidence-based healthcare nationally and internationally.


Currently, Västra Götaland HTA-Centre works on several HTA projects related to medical procedures or devices listed below:

  • Alertness therapy
  • MRI linac
  • Investigation and treatment of PANS / PANDAS
