6 ALGORITHM FOR INCORPORATING NEW TECHNOLOGY INTO THE LIST The HSC will examine pooled data from one of the recognized sources/websites Exceptions may be made for rare diseases The HSC will consider new sources/websites as they are identified Evidence regarding the effectiveness of a treatment will be used according to the algorithm to the right: The cost of a technology will be considered according to the grading scale below, with A representing compelling evidence for adoption, B representing strong evidence for adoption, C representing moderate evidence for adoption, D representing weak evidence for adoption and E being compelling evidence for rejection: A = more effective and cheaper than existing technology B = more effective and costs less than $25,000/LYS or QALY more than existing technology C = more effective and costs $25,000 to $125,000/LYS or QALY more than existing technology D = more effective and costs more than $125,000/LYS or QALY more than existing technology E = less or equally as effective and more costly than existing technology
