Home > Medical Terms for Billing and Coding > TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT (TA)



Health care TA is a multidisciplinary field of policy analysis. It studies the medical, social, ethical and economic implications of the development, diffusion and use of technologies. In support of NCDs, TA often focuses on the safety and efficacy of technologies. Each NCD includes a comprehensive TA process. For some NCDs, external TAs are requested through the Agency for Health Research and Quality (AHRQ). For a description of the TA process and guiding principles for selecting which topics are refereed for external TA assistance see http://www.cms.hhs.gov/mcac/guidelines.asp.
