Health technology assessment

Health technology assessment (HTA) is the systematic evaluation of the effects (including its value and costs) of an innovation (medical devices, treatments methods, drugs, new organization or program).


Our role is to produce real life or experimental data about the clinical effectiveness, the costs and the broader impact of innovations.


To that end, we design studies aiming at assessing the cost-effectiveness, cost-utility, budget impact and out-of-pocket burden of innovations.


 Health technology assessment (HB-HTA) is aimed at supporting decision-making process for the adoption of innovations (devices, equipment, drugs) within hospitals.





Health Economics Research

Health system performance is essentially a multidimensional concept which includes quality, efficiency, equity and satisfaction. Among these research themes, our work focuses on efficiency and equity (health care pathway and health access), by developing suitable methods for these topics, such as geographic variation analysis, description and classification of health care pathways.






Real World Evidence Platform (SNDS)

The French national outpatient and inpatient healthcare database (Système National des Données de Santé - SNDS) includes real-world evidence of all French people covered by the social health insurance system (>97% of the population).


This platform can be used in 3 ways: R&D projects, evidence generation for public and private clients and management support to the hospitals.


To that end, the Health Economics Unit set up a real-world evidence platform. Its missions are to advice internal or external investigators leading R&D projects requiring access to the SNDS data, to supply them with methodological support and to train people on how to process SNDS data.





Research and teaching activities

We teach about public health, health system financing and organisation, and health technology assessment.


Our research focuses on two topics :

- Equity of access to healthcare: geographical variation of healthcare use and analysis of out-of-Pocket payments (Lyphorac project).

- Care pathways of patients with chronic diseases, with a focus on the interface between primary and secondary care (PREPS HPE-LR project).


These activities are performed in close collaboration with:

- The CEPEL research center

- The department of Humanities and Social studies at Montpellier school of Medecine
