Abstract: This article reviews how patients have been involved in health technology assessments in recent years. Health technology assessments inform health policy by considering all the evidence and economics of using a health technology (a new medicine or device). The authors argue that patient involvement should be made more robust by making it part of the clinical research. They suggest it should be focused, systematic and transparent, and evolve according to the experiences of all stakeholders.
