Popis The proliferation of Health Technology Assessment (HTA) and its expanding can contribute to slow down burgeoning of health care costs. HTA is considered to be one of the tools how to improve health systems imbalances and problems through systematic evaluation of properties, effects, and impacts of health technology. The role of HTA is discussed in the context of increasing expenditures on health care caused especially by improving and using new technologies in the health care sector. The paper analyzes reasons for the growth of costs of health care and describes one of the methods for regulation of this growth - use of HTA. The Analysis deals with the development and use of HTA in the Czech Republic. The conflict of available resources and innovative technologies in healthcare is performed and methods of HTA are discussed in general introduction. In the paper we reflect the Czech situation in HTA and especially the legal frame of it., furthermore the main issues of HTA assessment in relation to health policy are introduced. The progress of HTA in the Czech Republic is evaluated separately as a process towards to applied Pharmacoeconomics and as a process towards HTA. Both the comparative analyses are performed to show the gap in implementing HTA in the Czech Republic. The Pharmacoeconomics was implemented in the Czech Republic even that CR does not have a formal HTA body in the sense of an independent agency. This selective use of HTA principles so far has not resulted in the implementation of HTA.
