NICE publishes draft guidance on the procurement of Digital Health Technologies (DHT)

3 January 2019

NICE publishes draft guidance on the procurement of Digital Health Technologies (DHT) setting out the evidence commissioners should request based upon the classification of the DHT. There are 3 tiers of classification based on the potential risk to users. It is open for comment and feedback through the NICE website until the 7 January 2019.

The classifications do not consider if the DHT must be CE marked under the EU regulations for medical devices and are intended to be complementary. As a minimum all DHTs must have been designed or signed off by both clinicians or social care professionals and users in the UK health and social care system.
