NHS England has been working with NICE, MedCity, Public Health England, NHS Digital and DigitalHealth.London on a project aimed at helping digital health innovators, commissioners, investors and grant funders to understand what a ‘good’ level of evidence for digital health technologies looks like.
NICE has published the ‘Evidence Standards Framework for Digital Health Technologies’, which details evidence of effectiveness for intended use and evidence of economic impact – and which will be key to supporting the speed and uptake of digital health tools.
You can view the new standards at www.nice.org.uk/digital-evidence-standards. There’s also:
- an article published today in the Lancet
- a short YouTube film which explains the new standards
- a blog from Indra Joshi
If you have any questions at all or would like any further information, please let me know.
