Health Technology Wales offers research support in response to COVID-19

Health Technology Wales (HTW) is working with partners in health and social care to support the response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

The organisation, which was set up by Welsh Government in 2017, is inviting COVID-19 related research questions, evidence reviews and requests for economics support.

Dr Susan Myles, Director of Health Technology Wales, said: “We welcome opportunities to collaborate with peer organisations and we’re already talking to fellow HTA bodies about the ways we can collaborate. As we respond to the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation, it’s imperative that we share information with decision makers as quickly as possible.”

A dedicated webpage has been launched to detail Health Technology Wales’ activities and visitors can access information at: www.healthtechnology.wales/covid-19.

Health Technology Wales can also provide:

  • Rapid evidence summaries and reviews on emerging evidence for COVID-19 diagnostics and therapeutics
  • FREE advice to technology developers and companies who are developing therapeutics and diagnostics related to COVID-19, including advice on evidence collection, evidence generation and economic modelling.

Health Technology Wales has also produced an evidence digest, which collates evidence related to COVID-19. The quick-guide will be updated regularly.

Organisations involved in Health Technology Assessments (HTA), guidelines and economic modelling are also being invited to collaborate and share resources with Health Technology Wales.
