In this paper we describe the present range of organizations that have a role in the early warning of new and emerging health care technologies in the United Kingdom.
We discuss in more detail the processes and prioritization criteria used by the U.K. horizon-scanning project for the NHS Health Technology Assessment Programme, and the principal methods of technology identification for the horizon-scanning project are outlined.
The United Kingdom plans to develop an integrated system for the identification of technologies for commercial planning, health service research prioritization, financial planning, and provision of information to policy makers, purchasers, and providers of health care.
