HTAi 2017 Rome Supplement now available


On January 12, 2018, the International Journal of Technology Assessment in Health Care (IJTAHC) published the Supplement from the HTAi 2017 Annual Meeting in Rome – Conference Theme: Towards an HTA Ecosystem: From Local Needs to Global Opportunities (Volume 33 - Issue S1 – 2017).

Due to concerns identified regarding author order published in the HTAi Supplement 2017 (Rome), this issue has been removed and the corrected version will be re-published.

This is the first Supplement issue produced from an HTAi meeting and it was a large piece of work. Many thanks to Associate Professor Wendy Babidge, IJTAHC Editor in Chief, and the HTAi Annual Meeting Team, especially Marlene Hanke and Laura Varga, who supported this process. 

The experience of producing this Supplement provided various learnings to facilitate a smoother editing process for future issues. Following completion of the abstracts acceptance process in February, editing for the Vancouver 2018 Supplement will begin and will be finalized by the end of March. Publication is planned to follow the meeting in Vancouver, likely in the third quarter of 2018.
