Learn how the adoption of MedTech can save you millions:
The MedTech Funding Mandate supports 11 technologies to be adopted across the NHS in England. The policy is a long-term plan commitment to get proven, affordable, cost saving technologies, devices, and diagnostics to patients faster.
The policy, managed by the Accelerated Access Collaborative, mandates commissioners to fund the cost of technologies, ensures the technologies are on a procurement framework, helping avoid lengthy local processes, and provides adoption support and technology expertise via the 15 Academic Health Science Networks in England. The session explores how providers and commissioners can implement the policy and the technologies it supports.
