ORCHA, The Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Applications, is the trusted source for health app advice. By increasing access to clinically effective health apps, building awareness of their benefits, and facilitating trust amidst the complex data privacy landscape, ORCHA empowers health professionals, organisations and app developers to embrace digital health.
Our work with CCGs and NHS Trusts enables populations to actively utilise digital health, as well as arming healthcare professionals with a prescription tool that allows them to recommend specific apps to patients. These solutions extend to the younger generation; the Digital Healthy Schools programme, powered by ORCHA, aims to educate schoolchildren, teachers and parents about how to safely realise the benefits of mobile health. ORCHA also helps app developers to improve their apps by advising on the nuances of app regulation, as well as working with developers to review, rate and market their products.
Having reviewed over 4,720 apps, ORCHA ensures that health and care professionals can access the widest range of health apps that have been evaluated in terms of data security, clinical effectiveness and usability. ORCHA’s stringent App Review process transforms the efficacy and safety of health apps into something tangible, easily accessible, and reliable.
