Health Services/Technology Assessment Text (HSTAT)

The Health Services Technology/Assessment Texts (HSTAT) is a free, Web-based resource of full-text documents that provide health information and support health care decision making. HSTAT's audience includes health care providers, health service researchers, policy makers, payers, consumers and the information professionals who serve these groups.

All of the collections in HSTAT can be accessed in the following ways:

1. By searching the complete Bookshelf

2. By searching the HSTAT collection specifically

3. By browsing the collections form the HSTAT homepage

4. Through links from "concept phrases" in PubMed abstracts

5. From the new Entrez Global query feature

Each document within HSTAT is displayed in a series of bite-sized pieces, based on the subsections of the documents. A navigation bar on the left of each page allows the user to jump between document sections, documents or collections within HSTAT.

Any Bookshelf page can be bookmarked as a "favorite" for future reference, or be linked to by another Web page. Citations within HSTAT documents that also have a PubMed or PubMed Central record are hyperlinked accordingly from the reference list.

HSTAT is part of the expanded Health Services Research Information Program coordinated by NLM's National Information Center on Health Services Research and Health Care Technology (NICHSR). NICHSR works to improve the organization and dissemination of the results of health services research, including practice guidelines and technology assessments. top link
