Summary on Grant Application Form
A significant development healthcare markets is the emergence of agencies (such as NICE and other similar organisations around the world) asses: clinical and cost effectiveness of new technologies. This makes this market extremely difficult for UK industry in promoting innovative products and technologies, especially as the methodologies necessary to assess many medical device technologies are not yet well established.MATCH will support this sector with new methods for establishing clinical value; new methods for capturing user needs for early design and in-use upgrades; best practice research on production and decision-making processes and a forum to engage the regulators and seek better ways forward all concerned.Finally, MATCH will ground its research in reality through a network of industrial partners.
