In April 2018 NHS England launched the Innovation Technology Payment (ITP). The ITP augments the principles of the Innovation Technology Tariff (ITT) by furthering efforts to minimise or remove potential financial or procurement barriers to uptake.
The ITP also aims to deliver on the Five Year Forward View’s commitment to support the NHS to adopt innovative market-ready medical devices, diagnostics, digital platforms and technologies which have demonstrated improvement to the quality and efficiency of patient care.
Delivered in partnership with the Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs), ITP also builds on the recommendations of the Accelerated Access Review (AAR) by offering further routes and support for new innovations and technologies that can make a real difference to patient care and outcomes.
The programme forms part of a wider set of activities to support innovation in the NHS, led by the AHSN Network.
The innovations currently available are showcased below, along with a collation of the evidence, training resources and launch events. These are available on varying cost models until March 2019, when the support will be reviewed.
Wessex AHSN use our evidence-based methodology to aid innovators, adopters and the wider health system in accelerating uptake and adoption of these innovations for the benefit of patients, staff and carers. Please contact us if we can help.
