NIHR – Horizon Scanning

Horizon scanning is an umbrella term that NIHR use to refer to the identification/detection and quantification of emerging innovations at a given timepoint, or on an ongoing basis.

NIHR take a systematic, transparent approach to our horizon scanning and are continuously developing and advancing our methods. Each of our published outputs includes details of the sources searched and the terms used. We
scan for many different types of innovation (e.g., medicines, devices, diagnostics), across a broad range of clinical (e.g., stroke, mental health, liver disease), at differing points on the innovation pathway (e.g., 1
year from UK market access, 6 years from estimated market readiness) so the sources and methods used are variable.
