HTA Application Development Award: Towards evaluation of digital and technology-enabled healthcare

  Wednesday, 27 Jul 2022 | Funding Deadline

The Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Programme funds research about the clinical and cost-effectiveness, and broader impact of healthcare treatments and tests, for those who plan, provide or receive care from NHS, and social care services.

The HTA Programme invites proposals for work which will accelerate the development of applications to the programme in the area of digital interventions and technology-enabled care. Applications should build on development work and aim to address challenges which must be resolved before a full research-based evaluation can be carried out.

Applicants are expected to define and justify the specific challenges which will be addressed, as well as how the proposed work will ultimately support a later application to the programme, to undertake a robust evaluation of the technology. All digital technologies with the potential to benefit patient health outcomes are eligible under this call, including standalone technologies and those combined with other products, such as medical devices, self-management tools, imaging technologies or diagnostic tests. This funding opportunity is intended to bridge the end of development work and readiness for research-based evaluation in health and care settings. The technology should therefore be fully developed, with proof of concept and validation where relevant and at or approaching readiness for definitive testing (e.g., CA/CE ready) in the proposed setting.

Deadline for proposals: 27 July 2022
