NICE Early Value Assessment (EVA)
NICE launched an Early Value Assessment (EVA) programme for its MedTech outputs. The objective is to offer rapid assessment of digital products devices and diagnostics for clinical effectiveness and value for money which will enable services and patients to be able to benefit sooner. Through Early Value Assessment, commissioners will be assured they are choosing products that offer real potential value while further evidence is being developed.
DDICB Policy on NICE Outputs remains current i.e. all other technologies not covered by the MedTech Funding Mandate are not commissioned and require the submission and subsequent approval of a business case as per the Interventional Procedure Policy.
