Health Technology Assessment (HTA) in spite of being a relatively recent methodological phenomenon has become increasingly important tool for the policy makers to bridge the gap between research and policy making. This work starts with an evaluation of the logic behind the adoption of HTA process for policy making, including features and advantages of the process. Subsequently, this study presents the risk related to the investments in health sector, from the different prospectives such as: balance among effectiveness, efficiency and economy; and role of the scarcity of available resources. Finally, the explanation about the necessity to evaluate the ability of investments in the health technology in nutritional care making a synthesis between the different variables to support the operations of the policy makers in a view to create added value and to contain costs.
