What We Do

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. Read more
