Popis The paper analyzes reasons for the growth of costs of health care and describes one of the methods for regulation of this growth - use of HTA. The Analysis deals with the development and use of HTA in the Czech Republic. The conflict of available resources and innovative technologies in healthcare is performed and methods of HTA are discussed in general introduction. The goal of this article is to reflect the Czech situation in HTA. Th e main issues of HTA assessment in relation to health policy are introduced. The progress of HTA in the Czech Republic is evaluated separately as a process towards to applied pharmacoeconomics and as a process towards HTA. Both the comparative analyses are performed to show the gap in implementing HTA in the Czech Republic. It was found that HTA in the sense o f pharmacoeconomics was implemented (even if Czech Republic does not have a formal HTA body in the sense of an independent agency), however, such a selective use of HTA principles so far has not resulted in the implementation of HTA.
