Clearly presenting how technologies with similar ethical issues are treated in a health care system may help to adopt coherent and just health policies, either by applying past precedents to current cases, or showing that past cases need reconsideration. Similarity is to be defined individually for each technology. The idea is to concentrate only on the similarities relevant for solving the ethical problems found important for the current HTA project. The similar ethical problems can be related to similarities in the technology’s medical, technological, economic, social, organisational or legal nature.
