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.
Following an initial release of a web platform tool in January 2017, this publication sees the full release of the new tool. This new tool has been developed in response to a user consultation undertaken in early 2016 specifically to enhance user experience in accessing the data, making it easier for commissioners and users to find information on what medicines (and later medical technologies and diagnostic tools) are available in their region and allow for easier comparison with other areas.
User feedback is welcomed on this new development to feed ongoing and future developments.
