Building on the principles of MCDA, HTA, and ethical decision making based on the triple aim (patients, populations and costs) the EVIDEM framework is designed to identify most beneficial interventions and optimize health of patients, populations and healthcare systems. The framework can be used for any type of intervention, across the continuum of decision (individual, patient, clinical, policy, development) and by design allows for a transparent and participatory process to support decisions. The EVIDEM tools have been translated in more than 10 languages to support a broad range of multistakeholder and multicountry applications.
