Launching of the Regional Base of Health Technology Assessment Reports in Americas – BRISA
RedETSA and the Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO) are launching the Regional Base of Health Technology Assessment Reports of the Americas – BRISA. This tool will allow the search of Health Technologies Assessment (HTA) bibliography produced by 33 member organizations of the Network. Initially, the base will include around 600 reports in Spanish, Portuguese, French, and English
This initiative, pioneer in Americas, was made in partnership with BIREME (Centro Latino-Americano e do Caribe de Informação em Ciência da Saúde), through BVS (Bibioteca Virtual em Saúde). BVS will host the database, which enables crossing- searching the researched subject with other available databases, such as LILACS and Medline.
With the launching of BRISA, PAHO and RedETSA aim to promote the use of HTA to improve the decision making process for the incorporation of technologies in the health systems.
