CAPUCHO, Helaine Carneiro et al. Incorporation of Techonologies in Health in Brazil: a New Model for the Brazilian Public Health System (Sistema Único de Saúde - SUS). BIS, Bol. Inst. Saúde (Impr.) [online]. 2012, vol.13, n.3, pp. 215-222. ISSN 1518-1812.

The technological advances of recent decades has provided improvements in the quality of population health and reducing mortality rates of a number of diseases. However, a large supply of these new technologies makes it necessary that, besides the benefits, risks and costs are evaluated in the decision making process to make them available to the health system, promoting the rational use of technologies. With the need to institutionalize a process model to incorporate technologies in health that were legally aided, was published 12.401/2011 Law establishing the National Committee for the Incorporation of Technology in SUS - CONITEC, the role of advising the Ministry of Health for incorporation, deletion or alteration of new technologies in the SUS. The new legislation sets a deadline for decision making, and includes evidence-based analysis, taking into account aspects such as efficiency, accuracy, effectiveness and safety technology, and economic evaluation of the comparative benefits and costs of the technologies existing. It is hoped, therefore, that the process of incorporating technology in the SUS is more responsive, transparent and efficient, giving the Brazilians their constitutional right to universal and comprehensive health care.
