The assessment of technologies and health care methodologies

The assessment of technologies and health care methodologies (ETMI) is a synthesis of scientific knowledge, economic evaluations, and clinical data on a specific subject matter.

ETMI is basically a decision-making support tool for decision-makers in the health care and social services network. ETMI basically involves an interdisciplinary approach analysis. Such an analysis takes into account available Québec, Canadian, and international data on needs, resources, and services.

One of the main features of ETMI is that it factors in the context surrounding the subject in order to generate credible and applicable recommendations for decision-makers and those affected by the said recommendations. The economical, political, organizational, and socio-cultural aspects are considered when formulating recommendations.
