Produced a literature review to define the specific issues and processes of getting a health technology approved and disseminated in the public health system in India. This involved compiling published literature (and unofficial reports) on 1) relevant “Health Technology Assessments” (HTA), 2) the medical technology assessment board (MTAB) and other relevant government bodies, and 3) how recommendations are made and submitted for approval to the Minister of Health and Family Welfare. Critical points of current knowledge about this process were summarized. Commonalities between approved HTAs were drawn and annotated. An en breve gap analysis compared NemoCare’s current body of data with their desired, expected data found from the literature review. Opportunities for bridging identified gaps by building upon NemoCare’s apriori usability studies, surveys, and interviews was hypothesized.
