The Quebec Council on Health Care Technology Assessment was created in 1988.
Its functions are to promote, support, and produce health care technology assessments and to advise the Minister of Health.
An independent review of the council's first four years of operation was commissioned.
The evaluation team concluded that the council showed very good results in terms of the scope, quality, and impact of its production and succeeded in establishing its credibility.
However, the evaluation team suggested that the council adopt a more active strategy toward the promotion and diffusion of its reports.
Some critical determinants of success of the Quebec experience in technology assessment are discussed.
