Authors' objectives: The Health Information and QualityAuthority (HIQA) undertook a targeted review to identify and catalogue relevant national and international institutions and organisations that conduct horizon scanning for evidence of emerging COVID-19 health technologies, practices and interventions. These health technologies include COVID-19 diagnostics, therapeutics, vaccines and other health technologies. This report will inform the work of theCOVID-19 Advisory Group. Horizon scanning is a systematic process for identifying plausible opportunities from future developments. (1) Horizon scanning generally targets the early lifecycle of technologies (that is, in an early phase of adoption before their introduction onto the market).(2) It can provide useful information for policymaking by identifying potential opportunities and solutions that require further attention and deliberation.
