Process Framework

The Process Framework governs how applications are categorised for the Medical Services Advisory Committee. It is based on specific criteria, such as clinical novelty and complexity, and assists in determining how Health Technology Assessment will be applied.

Note: The Process Framework is currently under review and will require amendments, as there have been numerous changes to MSAC processes since it was first introduced, including the recent introduction of the Health Products Portal. As such, while the approach to health technology assessment and assessment pathways described in the Framework is broadly accurate, reference to specific processes, such as the Application Progression Record, are no longer valid. It is therefore recommended that the Framework be read in conjunction with other information available on the MSAC website.
