Emerging Technology Reports

Public View

Access new and updated reports that provide a first look at the clinical evidence on newly approved drugs, devices, and procedures. Our experts identify and analyze the evidence to address key questions and patient-centered outcomes to reflect whether the technology is safe and effective enough to warrant coverage.

Technology Snapshots Providing Windows into Tomorrow

Providing the current status, efficacy, and use of a specific technology with systematic reviews without meta-analysis, these reports include information about factors affecting adoption and implementation derived primarily from expert searches of published, peer-reviewed scientific literature, trade publications, and websites.

Each report delves into cost, reimbursement, regulatory status, clinical standards and guidelines, effects on other technologies, and training/credentialing issues, and lists manufacturers and service providers.

This service is available as part of our Health Technology Assessment Information Service.
