What evidence do we need?

Download our Evidence Framework

At Scottish Health Technologies Group (SHTG) we’re often asked what level or types of evidence are required for a health technology to be given the green light for approval of use in Scotland. 

To help guide a response to this question, we have shaped an evidence framework that is intended to help evaluators, technology developers, and decision makers better understand what information is required for us to be able to identify technologies of value to service users and the health and care system.

Our evidence framework has been adapted from existing frameworks including the EUnetHTA core model, and the NICE evidence standards framework for digital technologies.
