In healthcare, technologies have a critical role in diagnostic, treatment and monitoring of the patients, either in hospitals settings or at home. But in order to be used in clinical routine, their assessment does not always comply with strict scientific criteria. In some situations, these technologies can also turn out useless, too costly or dangerous when integrated without precaution in the healthcare professional environment. In France, to address this issue, the Ministry of Health and the National Agency for Research in Medicine have installed new “Innovative Technologies” (IT) modules attached to existing Centres for Clinical Research (CRC). Eight CRC-IT (in short, CIT) have been accredited in different technological domains. They may support and secure the dissemination of promising IT applications in healthcare by assessing (i) the actual benefit for the patients, or medical service rendered, (ii) the potential drawbacks and (iii) the anticipated Return On Investment for the healthcare system. The procedures used to evaluate other healthcare innovations such as new drugs cannot be applied for the evaluation of innovative technologies. CIT also have to adapt their methodology to the type of device and domain. Besides the impact on the patient or public health, CIT are able to analyze the impact of innovative technologies on the quality of care and on their use by professionals.
