Health technology assesment

Jérôme Lamoril, Marc Bogard
Since the development of new human genome sequencing technologies at the beginning of the 2000, commercial companies have developped direct to consumer genomic services, which means without medical prescription. From 2007 to 2013, many companies have offered services assesing associated risk with human public health in the world especially in the United States. This kind of company is forbidden in France.

The development of prognostic systems was caused to determine patients of high risk of severe course of the illness, that require intensive care and proper treatment. This is the reason of development of prognostic systems based on clinical criteria, lab results and imaging procedures. Yet, none of them does fulfill all requirements.

BACKGROUND: Health technology assesment (HTA) requires scientifically rigorous experimentation involving patients as subjects. HTA itself is required so that treatment given to patients will be both effective and efficient; this requirement is itself ethical in nature. At the same time it is essential that the methods used in HTA are ethically sound. Most healthcare researchers agree that the most effective and soundest method for assessing treatments is the randomised controlled trial (RCT)...
