LEADING ACCESS TO HEALTHTECH
We work with the industry and the healthcare system to show the value of health technology, improve the lives of patients and overcome barriers to people benefitting from HealthTech.
We led the HealthTech input into the Accelerated Access Review (AAR) to ensure that the AAR considered a wide range of technologies and included essential activities to support the update of technology including:
Horizon scanning system for MedTech
Innovation exchanges through AHSNs
Funding allocated for pathway change
The Innovation Technology Programme Read more
We are a key partner and supporter of the AHSN network, working with them to support company initiatives and recommending activities that will further improve their work such as a National Project Office and an improved AHSN network. Read more
We promote the need for a stronger focus on value-based procurement, driving improved outcomes at lowest overall cost. We are helping to shape the DH Procurement Strategy so that the principles of value-based procurement are recognised in the implementation of their new procurement model.
