Horizon Scanning

Keep up with emerging technologies as well as future opportunities and threats across the healthcare continuum.

Identify breakthrough innovations using the first large-scale international database.

Leverage our International Horizon Scanning Initiative (IHSI) to stay informed about new and emerging technologies, innovations, and trends occurring across healthcare. Our systematic scanning process identifies potentially disruptive innovations up to three years before clinical availability outside of the research environment. In addition, our High Impact Reports provide critical insights into which medications could potentially disrupt healthcare in European member countries.

Stay informed about disruptive treatments, drugs, and medical devices.

The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Initiative Health Care Horizon Scanning system and database provides research on potential treatments and innovations for Alzheimer's disease and other dementia, cancer, cardiovascular disease, mental and behavioral health disorders, and rare diseases. In addition, our High Potential Disruption Reports provide critical patient-centered insights into the future of healthcare research.

Make healthcare more accessible and equitable with comparative-effectiveness research.

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) produces real-world evidence to make healthcare safer and more equitable; it is the lead federal agency for patient safety research. The first large-scale U.S. healthcare horizon scanning system to inform comparative-effectiveness research investments made through AHRQ’s Effective Health Care Program.
