Emerging health technologies

Emerging health technologies may have a significant impact on patients or the provision of health services in the near future.

The NIHR Innovation Observatory (NIHRIO) applies state-of-the-art data analytics to explore trends in health innovation across drugs, medical technologies, diagnostic tools and healthcare services.

Using digital tools, NIHRIO appraises and supplies timely information to stakeholders including the Department of Health, policymakers, academia and industry, so that areas to develop that could provide better healthcare and the opportunity for more timely adoption of innovation can be identified.
