NICE Technology Appraisals in the NHS in England (Innovation Scorecard) To March 2020


Summary

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).

NHS Digital has produced and published the Innovation Scorecard as an Official Statistic since January 2013 on behalf of the Office for 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 prior to publication and no central data collection is involved.

Note:

Medical Technologies and Trust level purchase data are suspended pending a review of their inclusion criteria and available data sources as a result of developments by the Accelerated Access Collaborative.
