AbstractSince 2007, the Washington State Health Technology Assessment Program (WA HTA) has evaluated selected health technologies using evidence-based reviews and an independent clinical committee. The WA HTA strives to achieve better health care outcome for enrollees and beneficiaries of state programs by paying for health technologies that work. WA HTA stakeholders are individuals or groups who have an interest in our decisions, the evidence we use to support our decisions and the clinical impact of our decisions. WA HTA Stakeholders Include: Patients Caregivers Providers Researchers Advocates and advocacy groups Professional societies Policy makers Elected officials Industry representatives
