Driving any new technological development requires a wealth of other technology to “enable” advances and new understanding, and to evaluate performance. For example, innovation in materials and manufacturing have enabled the development of new or combined technologies. Other areas such as clinical skills training and simulation enable the adoption of new technologies into a patient care pathway, or into clinical practice. Economic and technology evaluation is also important in developing value propositions for adopting technology into the NHS.
In the Leeds City Region the University of York’s Centre for Health Economics is a world renowned institute that produces policy relevant research and innovative methods that advance the use of health economics to improve population health, receiving over £18 million in funding.
