Environmental Scan
Project Number:

Several regulatory agencies have implemented processes to facilitate timely access for patients with high unmet medical needs to innovative therapies that may have important uncertainties in the evidence base at the time of initial assessment, and would typically require additional evidence generation. Many health technology assessment (HTA) agencies have adapted their processes to include time-limited recommendations (TLRs) that allow patients’ access to medications while additional data are collected to verify the therapy’s clinical and economic benefits.

The objective of this Environmental Scan is to identify what HTA agencies have processes in place for TLRs and to describe these processes, if applicable.
