Accelerated Access Review Recommends Improved Access to Innovation

The Government today published the Accelerated Access Review, which aims to make the UK a world-leader in healthcare innovation. In response to the report, Naureen Khan, director of public services at techUK said:

“This report rightly places emphasis on the need for patient centric innovation. By adopting these recommendations, the NHS has the potential to access the latest innovations and technologies in a more efficient way, from a broader base of suppliers.

“We’re particularly excited to see the focus on better access to data. Healthcare analytics has the potential to reduce costs of treatment, predict outbreaks of epidemics, avoid preventable diseases and improve the quality of life in general.

“The key to making this a success is early engagement with the tech industry to ensure the NHS has access to the latest and the best products and services available, as outlined in our Principles for Safe and Effective Information Sharing in Health and Social Care.”
