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 aim to provide the Council with a background for initiating evaluations. It is recommended that applicants engage in dialogue with the Danish Health Technology Council secretariat for guidance on completion.

The template is relevant for the overall themes:

  • background information
  • clinical outcome and safety
  • patient perspective
  • organisation
  • budget and finances
  • other relevant information

When you have completed the word template, you have to submit it 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 considers that a question is not relevant, the applicant should state 'not relevant' with brief supporting arguments. 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 enclosures' it is possible to list and enclose relevant publications and other documents, e.g. certificates, etc.

If there is confidential information in the evaluation proposal, this should be clearly marked with a yellow marker in the document. 

The evaluation proposal should be kept as short and as precise as possible (<20 pages, excl. Reference list), must contain a reference list, contain literature 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, companies should enclose an outline of costs explaining the total costs associated with use of the health technology. The outline of costs is used to confirm that the health technology is likely to 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 this is not a requirement.
