Focus and Scope

The open-access International journal of Clinical Engineering and Health Technology Assessment aims to encourage knowledge and experience exchange in CE and promote the involvement and role of Biomedical engineers in HTA. The main objective of the journal is to cover state-of-the-art advancements in clinical engineering practice and HTA focusing on medical devices.

The scope of the CEHTA is the publication of original contributions on clinical engineering and health technology assessment practices. The CEHTA serves as a forum for the wide range of Clinical and Biomedical engineers, health policy makers and professionals interested in the economic, ethical, medical and public health implications of health technology. It covers the development, evaluation, diffusion and use of health technology, as well as its impact on healthcare technology management.
