This template is used to submit evaluation proposals to the Danish Health Technology Council for evaluation of a new or existing health technology. The evaluation proposal should be completed by the applicant and aims to provide the Council with the necessary knowledge for deciding which evaluations to initiate. It is recommended that applicants engage in dialogue with the Danish Health Technology Council secretariat for guidance on completion.

The template contains the following overall themes:

  • background information
  • clinical efficacy and safety
  • patient experiences
  • organisational impact
  • health economics
  • other relevant information

NOTE: You can either fill in the digital form below this text field, or you can fill in the word template, which must then be submitted to the Danish Health Technology Council at kontakt@behandlingsraadet.dk. Write "Evaluation proposal" as the subject line of your e-mail

The scope of the response to each of the themes will depend on the individual health technology. If the applicant find that a specific question is not relevant, the applicant should state 'not relevant' with a brief supporting argument. Explanatory text for the questions is in grey and is not exhaustive. It may contain definitions, more detailed descriptions, etc. The applicant may delete the explanatory text when the field has been completed. Under ‘relevant attachments’ it is possible to list and attach relevant publications and other documents, e.g., certificates, internal documentation, etc.

If there is confidential information in the evaluation proposal, this should be clearly marked by applying following to your answer: //CONFIDENTIAL//. If the proposal is submitted using the Word-template, please highlight all confidential information in yellow.

The evaluation proposal should be kept as concise as possible (<20 pages, excl. appendices and the reference list), must contain a reference list, contain in-text citations (Vancouver reference style), and be written in either Danish or English.

Should any questions arise in preparation of an evaluation proposal or outline of costs, applicants can contact the Danish Health Technology Council's secretariat for guidance or clarification.

In addition to the actual evaluation proposal, private companies should attach an outline of costs explaining the total costs associated with use of the health technology. The outline of costs is used to confirm that use of the health technology is likely to, as a whole, be cost-neutral or cost-reducing. The Danish Health Technology Council secretariat provides an outline of costs form for use by companies. Regions and hospital administrators may also apply this outline, but it is not a requirement.
