Corporate document

This document describes an evidence standards framework (ESF) for digital health technologies (DHTs). It was developed by NICE between June 2018 and February 2019 in collaboration with NHS England, Public Health England and MedCity. The work was commissioned by NHS England.

In April 2021, we updated the framework document with changes in response to an ESF user survey, which ran from October to December 2019. For further details, see update information.

Find out how to use the framework in the ESF user guide.
