Digital healthcare holds the power to revolutionise how we treat patients. But this revolution comes with risk. Right now, there are over 350,000 health apps out there and only 20% meet safety standards.  How do you get the right products, to the right people, at the right time?

 

If digital health truly has the power to revolutionise healthcare, then we have to be just as responsible with it as we are with any other aspect of medical practice. It’s a risk that needs action, and with action comes innovation. This is where the Organisation for the Review of Health and Care Apps (ORCHA) comes in.

 

ORCHA exists to make digital healthcare healthy.  Our digital health quality management platform delivers the core infrastructure needed to introduce digital health safely.  This award-winning technology is used by national bodies, healthcare providers and digital health innovators in twelve countries. It delivers a systematic approach to assessing, accrediting, deploying and embedding digital health technologies into clinical services and pathways, using a risk management approach, that has long been in place for medicine.

Delivering safe digital health

Digital healthcare holds the power to completely transform how we deliver care to patient populations.

But we have to be just as responsible with them as we are with any other aspect of medical practice.
