ABHI (Association of British Health-Care Industries) seeks progress with NICE (UK National Institute for Clinical Excellence) outside inquiry

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Association of British Health-Care Industries (ABHI), the UK's leading association for the medical systems industry, has not been called to the oral sessions of the UK parliamentary inquiry into the performance of the National Institute for Clinical Excellence, due to take place later this month. The fact that its pharmaceutical industry counterpart - the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) - has, can be explained by the different relationship that exists between the UK's official clinical- and cost-effectiveness assessment body and the two main industries it affects, but does not mean that there is no room for improvement in NICE's assessment of devices.
