REQueST tool and its Vision paper Public Consultation – Now closed


The Haute Autorité de Santé (HAS), National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) & the Croatian Institute for Public Health (HZJZ) are pleased to share the following WP5 strand B draft outputs for an 8 week public consultation:


  • REQueST (Registry Evaluation and Quality Standards Tool): a tool that is built upon the results of the PARENT joint actions and aims to support HTA organisations in guiding and evaluating registries for effective usage in HTA.
  • Vision paper on the sustainable availability of the REQueST: accompanying the tool is a vision paper setting out proposed options for the long-term delivery, use and sustainability of REQueST beyond Joint Action 3.


The tool has been developed to be a comprehensive resource that covers all important aspects relating to the quality of registries and will hopefully be an invaluable resource to HTA bodies and others by ensuring a consistent quality of evidence is being used.


The above outputs have been produced in parallel with, and with awareness of, other work on the use of patient registries being conducted by other organisations (such as the European Medicines Agency (EMA)) and those organisations have been included in this consultation to further ensure synergies between these different pieces of work.


To participate, please follow the below steps:

1.  Please consult and consider the content of the tool first before reading the Vision Paper as the tool provides context.

2.  Please answer the following online survey to provide your feedback to us.


This consultation will run from 06/05/2019 and end on 28/06/2019.

This consultation is now closed.

This is our final consultation on these deliverables and we would very much appreciate your feedback and comments on the content and usability of the tool, along with your thoughts on the future sustainability options we have set out for its future use.


Once the consultation has concluded, the tool and vision paper will be updated and finalised in September 2019 to be included in the final deliverables of WP5 stand B (Post-Launch Evidence Generation (PLEG) and Registries).


If you have any difficulties accessing the draft outputs, the online survey or any other questions regarding this consultation then please contact (cc’ing
