ECRI’s horizon scanning efforts enable healthcare decision makers to stay informed about new and emerging technologies, innovations, and trends occurring across healthcare. We use a systematic scanning process to scan for and identify potentially disruptive innovations up to three years before clinical availability outside of the research environment. The horizon scanning team evaluates each innovation's potential to impact patient and population health outcomes, health disparities, health care costs, infrastructure needs, and many other factors to detect signals of the innovation's potential to disrupt—positively or negatively—the current state of healthcare.
