Population/users
Criteria Explanation 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9    
Score  
Weighted score  
Weighted score (base 100)  
disease frequency The condition or indication in which the potentially obsolete technology could be used is frequent (high prevalence and/or incidence)
Burden of disease The condition or indication in which the potentially obsolete technology could be used causes important health losses (mortality, morbidity, disability)
frequency of technology use The potentially obsolete technology is currently applied to a large number of patients
patients preferences There is scientific evidence of a lower acceptance among patients of potentially obsolete technology compared to other technological alternatives exist (eg, greater discomfort, greater inconvenience, longer treatments).
Benefit / Risk

Weighted score (base 100)  
efficacy/effectiveness/validity There is scientific evidence that the effectiveness of the prioritised technology has been surpassed by other alternatives (or even by doing anything). For diagnostic tests, the reliability of the technology being prioritised has been clearly overcamed by other available diagnostic tests.
Adverse effects There is evidence in the literature of more adverse effects, or more important, with the potentially obsolete technology, than with the other existing alternative technologies.
Risks The potentially obsolete technology increases the likelihood of health staff of becoming ill or having an accident at work (eg, radiation) or supposes a higher environmental hazard in comparison to other existing alternative technologies.
Costs and other

Efficiency There are economic evaluations that are more favourable to other existing technological alternatives
maintenance cost The potentially obsolete technology requires more resources for its functioning (eg, consumables, check-ups, human resources,,) in comparison to other existing alternative technologies.
Other implications It can be anticipated that the withdrawal of the potentially obsolete technology has a positive impact on ethical, social, cultural and/or legal aspects.
