NHS England has launched a call for applications for the Innovation & Technology Payment (ITP) 2019-20.
Delivered with the support of Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs), the ITP aims to deliver on the 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, by removing financial or procurement barriers to uptake.
The Innovation and Technology Payment (ITP) 2019/20 builds on the Innovation and Technology Tariff (ITT) and ITP 2018/19.
The ITP is specifically focused on low cost innovations which can deliver significant patient outcomes and savings to the NHS. It is a competitive process designed to scale up adoption of innovations and technologies that have already proved their clinical effectiveness and are ready for nationwide spread.
The programme is designed to support medical devices, digital platforms and technologies but is not suitable for pharmaceutical products or research projects. Applicants can be from healthcare, academia, commercial or voluntary sectors.
NHE England aims to select a range of cost effective innovations that have a wide-reaching impact on patient care; the programme also seeks to maximise learning from the programme while fostering culture change.
