Regulation - Digital healthcare technologies

Digital healthcare technologies are apps, software, artificial intelligence (AI) and digital platforms or services used for health or social care. Some digital healthcare technologies are considered to be medical devices.

To understand what regulations apply to digital technologies and how to meet them, see the AI and Digital Regulations Service. This explains what regulations you need to follow, how to evaluate effectiveness, and how to generate evidence for the NHS organisations who will buy or use your technology.

You can access support from the AI and Digital Regulations Service through the NHS Innovation Service.
