The Innovation and Technology Payment (ITP) is a programme that was launched in September 2018. The ITP supports NHS England’s commitment to drive and adopt proven and affordable innovations, as set out in the Five Year Forward View and NHS Long Term Plan. The ITP aims to remove financial and procurement barriers to support the NHS to adopt innovative medical devices, diagnostics, and digital products.
The programme is designed to scale up adoption of innovations and technologies that have already proved their clinical effectiveness and are ready for nationwide spread. The ITP’s focus is to support a range of cost effective medical devices, digital platforms and technologies within our budgetary confines and will have a wide-reaching impact on patient care, deliver savings to the NHS and maximise learning from the programme while fostering culture change.
To be selected for the ITP, products needed to meet the following criteria:
• NICE support (through a Medtech Innovation Briefing or Guidance)
• Positive in-year return on investment
• Use in at least three NHS organisations
