New route map for MedTech innovators in the UK
The Academic Health Science Networks in partnership with the Association of British HealthTech Industries (ABHI) launched a report of the MedTech landscape aimed at accelerating the entry, adoption, and spread of innovations for the benefit of patients and commercial success.
A new report provides an essential guide for companies looking to successfully develop and roll out innovations in this complex and diverse industry, focused around the MedTech innovation pathway.
This is an exciting time for the MedTech industry as innovative solutions to meet pressing healthcare needs have never been in greater demand. Furthermore, successive improvements in national policy have helped to support the sector, including the commitments in the Accelerated Access Review and recent NHS Long Term Plan to create a new funding climate. However, the report has identified that in addition to securing finance and supporting policy there is a need for practical advice and support to help the industry thrive.
Established by NHS England in 2013, AHSNs champion companies with game-changing innovations and seek to maximize their potential to achieve significant population health impacts. As the only organizations designed to connect all partners across the sector – NHS, academia, local authorities, the third sector industries, and citizens – the networks are ideally placed to help MedTech innovators whose advances often sit at areas of convergence between industries including biotechnology, telecommunication, artificial intelligence, and consumer wellbeing.
