Authors' objectives:

1. To identify opportunities to improve GANT.
2. To update the current GANT format.

Authors' recommendations: 1. A sufficient number of opportunities for improvement have been pinpointed to enable up–dating GANT. They largely have to do with the submissions format, contents, sections and questions; wording of the questions and the introduction of resources that complement the application form; the procedure to be following for assessing technologies in the hospital setting; and co–ordinating the work involved in assessing technologies between various hospitals.2. We have produced a new version of the Guide for Acquisition of New Technologies. This new version is presented in paper format and files in Adobe Acrobat, on–line electronic format and an English language version of the pdf. file. The main changes introduced with regard to the former version, affect the application form’s layout, content, sections and questions; wording of questions, and the introduction of resources that complement the questionnaire.
