Cuts for NHS IT

08 Dec 09

New NICE programme to evaluate medical technologies established

17 Nov 09

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence is launching a new programme focusing specifically on the evaluation of innovative medical technologies (including devices and diagnostics). This new programme will both compliment and operate in conjunction with NICE’s existing technology appraisal capacity, which will continue to evaluate new pharmaceutical and biotechnology products.

The Evaluation Pathway Programme for Medical Technologies will help enable new medical technologies, or important modifications of existing ones, to be used more quickly and consistently in the NHS. The types of products which might be included are medical devices that deliver treatment such as those implanted during surgical procedures, technologies that give greater independence to patients, and diagnostic devices or tests used to detect or monitor medical conditions.
