We are an independent horizon scanning centre based at Newcastle University in the UK. We use advanced horizon scanning techniques to detect new health innovations and track them; from patent-to-patient.

NICE provide UK national guidance for the NHS through their NICE technology appraisal (TA) and highly specialised technology (HST) process. NIHRIO is industry’s gateway to NICE, notifying NICE about new or repurposed drugs 3 years before UK license. This early notification allows NICE to provide new technology guidance as close to the license date as possible, ensuring efficient UK market access.
