Description:
On 4 October 2012, the then Director General designate of the Health Service Executive (HSE), Mr Tony O’Brien, requested that the Health Information and Quality Authority (the Authority) undertake a series of health technology assessments (HTAs) of scheduled surgical procedures. This was in the context of evaluating the potential impact of introducing clinical referral or treatment thresholds for selected high volume procedures within the publicly-funded healthcare system and to advise on possible thresholds for each of the procedures assessed. In April 2013, following a second request, the Terms of Reference were broadened to encompass a wider range of scheduled procedures currently undertaken in Ireland to which it would be appropriate to examine clinical referral and treatment thresholds. The assessments are being conducted on a phased basis. Phase I comprised analysis of clinical referral or treatment thresholds for otolaryngology, ophthalmology and vascular scheduled surgical procedures, the findings of which which were published in April 2013.
