Health Technology Assessment (HTA) is a decision making tool that is intended to support healthcare managers in their strategic decisions such as technology management. In the hospital context, approaches reported hospital based HTA are standing out by being able to support the incorporation of new health technologies locally. For clinical engineering, the use of HTA in hospitals is an opportunity to expand their actions that aim to add quality by adapting the technology to use. This article outlines a draft methodology for HTA in hospitals through the structuring of decision making for medical device incorporation.
