ICER, CADTH, and NICE collaborate to increase transparency in health technology evaluations

By Danélia Botes

May 2, 2023

The Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER), the Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health (CADTH), and the UK’s National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) have announced changes to the way confidential information about health technologies is handled. The aim is to streamline processes and increase transparency while balancing the need to protect confidential information. The three organizations have been working together to create a more consistent approach to handling clinical data. ICER has updated its academic-in-confidence data policy, reducing the period during which data is redacted from external and public documents from 18 months to 12 months. These changes will come into effect in May 2023.
