LONDON – The United Kingdom’s National Institute for Health and Care Excellence is launching a fee-based online tool to help health device makers get their products to market faster. The Medtech Early Technical Assessment (META) tool will help companies identify what evidence they already have and what gaps need to be filled to satisfy payers. The new tool will help developers of medical devices and diagnostics generate evidence to show their products are clinically relevant and cost effective. The tool will enable companies to better articulate the benefits of their products, and will help companies prepare for a dialog with health technology assessment organizations and payers, said Leeza Osipenko, head of NICE Scientific Advice, the institute’s fee-based consultancy service, in a statement. She said META is aimed primarily at small- and medium-sized companies.
