Due to the rapid development of health technologies and the ever-rising healthcare costs, horizon scanning, also known as early awareness and alert (EAA) activities, is the method aiming at identifying new and emerging health technologies that may have impact on health system and early alerting and informing policy-makers to arrange and plan following issues, such as regulatory environment, financial management, workplace preparedness, training and education, and ethics. The Horizon Scanning Research and Intelligence Centre in UK has several years of experience in EAA activities. Identifying new and emerging health technologies influencing the National Health Service is one activity within their remit. We could learn the experience of EAA's processing to produce their final lists of health technologies as the guidance when planning our own fiscal budget for new health technologies under the scheme of global budget. However, policy-makers should first decide the scope, the timing within reasonable frame, filtration criteria, who and how to process the topic selection, how to manage the gap between manufacturer's suggested price and National Health Insurance price, the strategies to cope with the impact, resulted from the unpredictable delayed approval of health technologies, on the executing fiscal budget, and the setting of the criteria to prioritize the health technologies within the fixed amount under the fiscal budget.
