I NSTITUTE OF MEDICINE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCI ENCES 2101 CONSTITUTION AVENUE FREDERICK C. ROBBINS, M. D. PRESIDENT WASHINGTON, D. C. 20418 This report, "Medical Technology Assessment: A Plan for a Private/Public Sector Consortium 7 '' was prepared by an Institute of Medicine committee headed by Jeremiah A. Barondess, M.D. The planning project was undertaken in response to growing concerns in both the private and public sectors expressed at a meeting convened by the Institute of Medicine in June 1982 about the lack of a coordinating entity for the assessment of medical technologies. There is presented a reasoned approach to the kind of an organization needed to foster a private/public partnership in medical technology assessment, and an outline of the functions, governance, and possible funding mechanisms of the enterprise. Many persons from each sector of interest contributed perspectives to the committeeis deliberations, and their work is greatly appreciated. The committee's recommendations constitute only a plan for an organization. The Institute's governing council as well as the similar bodies of the National Academy of Sciences and National Academy of Engineering will consider whether to implement the recommendations of the committee and, if so, in what manner. ~ ~~ Hi ma. ..
