Feeling Good passes the new NHS DTAC
ORCHA would like to congratulate the mental health app, Feeling Good, on being amongst the first products to become compliant with the new Digital Technology Assessment Criteria for health and social care (DTAC) – this is a fantastic achievement.
The Feeling Good app offers Positive Mental Training audio programmes based on scientific research, which can help with stress, anxiety and depression by building resilience and developing positive feelings.
ORCHA independently assessed the solution against the clinical safety, data protection, technical security, interoperability and usability and accessibility standards detailed in the DTAC and we are pleased to say Feeling Good meets each of the criteria outlined.
The DTAC, developed by the NHS and launched in 2021, is a new advisory assessment criteria for commissioning digital health technologies in the NHS and social care services. ORCHA is able to support innovators and health & care providers who want to have digital health products assessed against all of the DTAC criteria. This may be a solution you have developed, or a product you intend to use as part of practice.
Please get in touch to request a DTAC review and to discuss the options available today.
