NICE unveils Medtech Early Technical Assessment tool

The UK’s National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (‘NICE’) through its Scientific Advice service unveiled on 30 May 2017 the Medtech Early Technical Assessment (‘META’) online tool, which aims to assist medical device and diagnostic product developers in gathering the evidence needed to prove their products are clinically and cost effective, and prepare developers to engage with health technology assessment organisations and payers, thus increasing the speed to market of the product.

The META tool is set to launch on 3 July 2017 and has been developed through a partnership with the Greater Manchester Academic Health Science Network. Describing healthcare systems as “keen to adopt transformative and cost saving technologies,” Leeza Osipenko, Head of NICE Scientific Advice, explains that “We want to help healthcare systems get access to more products that meet such criteria and help companies develop these technologies and relevant evidence to demonstrate their value to patients and payers.”

NICE intends for the tool to be utilised both in the UK and internationally, with the META tool available to be licensed for use by partner organisations working with medtech companies.
