Early-Stage Technology Assessment for SMEs

Be confident in your investment decisions - evaluate the commercial potential of healthcare technology in development through the IHE Early-Stage Life Sciences Technology Assessment service.

The IHE provides services for early-stage small- and medium-sized enterprise (SME) technology developers (or other innovators, such as an academic group considering forming an SME) to present important insights into the potential for commercial success. This includes an assessment of the health economic evidentiary requirements and hurdles that will need to be met and overcome to market a technology that is attractive to payers. Insights from IHE services will support decision-making on the merits of further product development or modifications in design to improve the value offering, and will assist with raising capital.
