NIHR MindTech MedTech Co-operative is a national centre focussing on the development, adoption and evaluation of new technologies for mental healthcare and dementia. It was established in 2013 (formerly as a Healthcare Technology Co-operative and since Janurary 2018 as a MedTech and In-vitro diagnostic Co-operative) and is funded by the National Institute for Healthcare Research. MindTech brings together healthcare professionals, researchers, industry and the public.

MindTech in brief


MindTech is one of 11 MedTech and In-vitro diagnostic Co-operatives (MICs) in England funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), each concentrating on different areas of unmet need. Each MIC focusses on medical devices (including digital technologies) or diagnostic technologies, or both

We aim to identify unmet clinical needs in mental health and dementia, to collaborate on developing and testing a range of new technologies, and to provide advice and knowledge exchange to help increase their adoption.

We are currently focussing on technologies for dementia, mood disorders (such as depression and anxiety), neurodevelopmental disorders (such as Tourette Syndrome and Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) young people's mental health, and with a particular focus on evaluation methods. However, we are interested in all aspects of mental health.

The MindTech team has a range of clinical and technical expertise and we also have an active Involvement Team and wider network of service users and representatives from patient organisations.

Background

MedTech and In-vitro diagnostic Co-operatives (MICs) are centres of expertise that focus on clinical areas where there is high unmet need for NHS patients.

The aims of the NIHR MICs are:

  • to build expertise and capacity in the NHS to develop new medical technologies and provide evidence on commercially-supplied in vitro diagnostic (IVD) tests.
  • to be leading NHS organisations acting as centres of expertise, bringing together patients, clinicians, researchers, commissioners and industry.
