CTAF has been dedicated to applying evidence and transparency in the evaluation of new and emerging health technologies since 2003.

In October 2012, CTAF hosted a symposium to review the current state of evidence, suggest research priorities, and operational considerations to help inform health policy.
CTAF recommends Understanding Evidence-based Healthcare, an online, self-paced tutorial created by the U.S. Cochrane Center at Johns Hopkins University.
