HETT 2019 | Features

Technology is revolutionising health services. Health professionals see apps as a crucial step on the road to care that is more efficient and more patient-centred than today. But how do you find an app which matches your patient’s needs, is clinically effective, secure and easy to use?

ORCHA is the World’s leading health app evaluation and advisor organisation. Its unique methodology assesses apps against 260 criteria across effectiveness, security and usability, so you can access accurate, impartial and up to date advice. It tests more apps than anyone so that you can find and recommend the right health app with confidence.

Its platform helps NHS professionals to find, prescribe and monitor health app usage.

ORCHA has curated a selection of apps that help address some of the biggest health issues faced by patients today. At the ORCHA app zone, you can demonstrations and get hands-on experience of tested apps across a wide range of conditions. Take a look at apps including:

  • Fibricheck – using the phone’s camera and flash to measure heart rate, helping to detect irregular heartbeats.
  • Sleepio – developed by Oxford University, long term poor sleepers who use Sleepio improve sleep disruption by up to 60%.
  • Brain in Hand – provides on-demand access to personalised support and a team of professionals to help reduce anxiety and increase independence for people with autism, mental health conditions and learning difficulties.
  • Quit smoking now – developed by doctors and behavioural psychologists and utilises over 20 different, evidence-based, techniques to help users stop smoking.
  • SkinVision – to assess and track changes of lesions, for patients concerned with skin cancer.
  • Clear Fear – Clear Fear Is A Clinician-Developed App That Helps Young People Manage Anxiety.
