NICE launches 5-year strategy
Last month we saw the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) announce its key priorities for the future. This is based on four key pillars:
- Rapid, robust, and responsive technology evaluation
- Dynamic, living guideline recommendations
- Effective guidance to maximise the impact of NICE
- Leadership in data, research and science
As part of this, NICE chairman Sharmila Nebhrajani OBE, announced that “AI and machine learning will bring digital health in disease prevention and self care to the fore… finding new and more flexible ways to evaluate products and therapies for use in the NHS”.
Those of us working on the ground that are keen for the development of evidence-based technologies and a clear way forward for digital health, will be glad to hear this recognition from NICE.
