    The value of technology to health care is not dependent on clinical and economic considerations alone. In this chapter we describe health related as well as economic, social, legal, ethical, and organizational criteria to include in early health technology assessment. Moreover, we provide recommendations on methods to collect data on these criteria, and how to integrate these finding by means of multicriteria decision analysis. Such early assessments of biomedical innovations can provide developers with recommendations on which technological innovation to invest in, and how to optimize the value of this innovation.
