The aim of the course is to teach students how to formulate and solve requirements in terms of ensuring the operation of technologies used in healthcare, explain the applicable legislation and manage their quality selection and service. In addition, the student will learn the principles of acquiring technologies, both medical and non-medical. In practical exercises, the learned knowledge of HB HTA will be verified by creating a simulated example of a healthcare facility to which technologies will be procured. In two term papers, students first design the technology to be acquired using HB HTA and then „tender“ it in a selection process.
