Abstract

Due to increasing healthcare costs worldwide, health technology assessment (HTA) is of great importance. HTA has used cost-effectiveness analysis to assess the new health technologies and interventions within health systems. The Monitoring and Assessment Framework for the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (MAFEIP) is one of the tools used to conduct this type of assessment. The main objective of the MAFEIP tool is to estimate the outcomes of a large variety of social and technological innovations, by providing an early assessment of the likelihood that interventions will achieve their anticipated impact. In addition, MAFEIP also helps to identify the drivers of an intervention's effectiveness or efficiency in order to guide further design, development or evaluation. Therefore, MAFEIP represents a clear support to the decision-making process for HTA. Given that healthcare costs are expected to continue increasing through the coming decades, it is now more urgent to have a clear understanding of which interventions and technological solutions are most effective and have the biggest impact, while also taking into account their relative costs.
