Health technology assessment (HTA) is increasingly used in health services to promote health, prevent and treat disease and improve rehabilitation and long-term care. However, the impact of HTA on the adoption of the evidence-based recommendations is limited. The aim of this study is to examine the impact of HTAs conducted by NHS Quality Improvement Scotland (NHS QIS) and it predecessor the Health Technology Board for Scotland (HTBS). In this study a structured evaluation of some of the aspects of the dissemination and implementation strategies of the HTAs is presented.
