Evaluation of individual medical procedures - MEL 2015
Project leaders: Claudia Wild
Project co-operation: LBI-HTA staff for individual reviews
Duration: November 2014 – April 2015
Suggested by: MoH
Each year, the Austrian Federal Ministry of Health receives proposals from service-providers for inclusion of new interventions as individual medical procedures (MEL) in the DRG model for reimbursement. The aim of this project is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of these procedures. Topics (interventions) were prioritized by the Ministry of Health and contracted out to the LBI-HTA.
The assessments are based on systematic reviews for each procedure and a summary of the scientific evidence according to the GRADE scheme.
