The Committee for Health Care Management Strategies, in coordination with the three regulatory committees involved in the assessment of health products, is responsible for preparing the decisions for the Board, especially on:
- recommendations developed for health professionals or public authorities in terms of good practices or the organisation of care;
- recommendations related to proper use and efficacy of health products;
- development of health care management strategies.
To carry out its mission, the Committee may be supported by associated HAS’ departments, professional organisations or working groups. It may also hear from experts or stakeholders. The Committee renders opinions on:
- recommendation content and its method of elaboration
- action plans needed to put in place that ensure the recommendations have an impact,
- additional perspectives that may be submitted to the HAS Board.
In addition to the missions listed above, the Board may entrust the Committee with projects, inquiries or consultations that it deems useful for the preparation of its decisions.
The Committee is composed of twenty-one full members appointed by the HAS Board for a 3-year term, renewable twice:
- a chair appointed from among the members of the HAS Board;
- an ex officio vice-chair who is the chair of the Transparency Committee;
- nineteen individuals appointed based on their expertise, two of which represent patient or user associations.
If a Committee member's seat becomes vacant, for any reason, another appointment can be made under the same conditions and for the remainder of the term.
The National Medical Advisor of the CNAMTS also participates in the Committee, in an advisory role.
