The Innovation Scorecard reports on the use of medicines and medical technologies in the NHS in England, which have been positively appraised by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) since 2012.
NHS Digital has produced and published the Innovation Scorecard quarterly as an Official Statistic since January 2013 on behalf of the Office of Life Sciences. It can be used by local NHS organisations to monitor progress in implementing NICE Technology Appraisal (TA) recommendations.
We produce the scorecard using a range of data sources from two to five years prior to publication and no central data collection is involved.
In response to a user consultation undertaken in early 2016, this publication sees the initial release of an online visualisation tool to enhance user experience in accessing the data. User feedback is welcomed on this initial release to aid developments for a full release in the April 2017 publication which will replace the interactive spreadsheets and interactive maps.
