MIBs

NICE medtech innovation briefings (MIBs) are designed to support NHS and social care commissioners and staff who are considering using new medical devices and other medical or diagnostic technologies. The briefings will help avoid the need for organisations to produce similar information locally, saving staff time and resources. The information provided includes a description of the technology, how it’s used and it's potential role in the treatment pathway.

A MIB also includes a review of relevant published evidence and the likely costs of using the technologies. They are designed to be fast, flexible and responsive to the need for information on innovative technologies. MIBs are commissioned by NHS England and produced in support of the NHS 5-Year Forward View, specifically as one of a number of steps which will accelerate innovation in new treatments and diagnostics.
