HTA Master File for Central & Eastern Europe

Optimize the use of your existing data & materials on a product to build your HTA Master File for local submissions in CEE countries!

The HTA Master File is a useful resource when a company already has existing material and data on their product and wants to submit an application for reimbursement to local countries in the CEE, where requirements for HTA submissions vary. By organizing existing materials and data within the structure of the EUnetHTA Core Model, we provide instruction for use of existing information for local submission and point out any required information.

Key advantages for companies who use the HTA Master File:

  • Saves time
    • Useful for Market Access managers responsible for a region to know if there are gaps in a country
    • Allows to plan timing of local submissions
    • Helpful for local affiliates as all local requirements are provided with instructions
  • Saves money
    • Uses full potential of a company’s existing data and materials on a product to fulfill local submission requirements
    • Identifies what is missing/needed to meet local requirements
    • Focus is on optimal use of data to prevent unnecessary duplication of work
  • Based on the framework of widely recognized EUnetHTA

EUnetHTA Core Model

Companies seeking reimbursement in EU countries for their drugs or medical devices must adhere to requirements for each country considered. However, a recently proposed regulation by the European Commission to the European Parliament and the Council aims to simplify this process with a joint clinical assessment for companies seeking reimbursement in EU member states. An important aspect of the joint clinical assessment is that it considers the achievements undertaken by EUnetHTA.

At Arcana Institute, the widely recognized  EUnetHTA HTA Core Model forms the foundation of our HTA Master File tool. We create an HTA Master File by following the EUnetHTA HTA Core Model® version 3.0, producing a consortium of documents and information that optimizes the use of available data and materials on a product already gathered by our client. The aim of creating the HTA Master File is to transform a company’s varying data and materials on a product into a comprehensive tool used by local teams and affiliates for local submissions.
