Our Reviewers are recruited and trained by ORCHA from a wide array of backgrounds and roles. They are not experts in any particular field of App assessment but rapidly become an expert in interrogating Apps to answer the questions posed by our Review Development Team who are all experts in the relevant areas such as clinical, technical, regulation, user experience and design.
The Review Development Team are responsible for the questions our Reviewers are looking to answer. They set out very clearly what evidence the Reviewers need to find to answer a question affirmatively and they also determine the consequences of the answer to each question in terms of positive or negative points being awarded which drives our scoring process.
Our Reviewers are guided through each review through our online review tool and this ensures that all the relevant questions are investigated. Where our Reviewers encounter scenarios that the Review Development Team haven’t specified, the Reviewers refer these back to the relevant member of the Review Development Team for guidance.
This combination of highly trained dedicated reviewers and our wider expert group in the Review Development Team means that we can review lots of Apps in a timely and cost-effective manner.
