Medical technology innovation classification framework released

By April 10, 2024No Comments

DHSC have released a new medical technology innovation classification framework with the aim of creating “single version of truth for innovative language”. This coincides with the release of an update to the MedTech Strategy following its publication a year ago.

The framework will:

  • establish a common language for discussing innovation across the medical technology sector
  • establish clear criteria for a device to be described as innovative in different forms
  • clearly convey the change in a device compared to what already exists on the market and benefits to patients and the system
  • support prioritisation and adoption of the most impactful innovations

You can find the framework here.
