Open call for products capable of delivering NHS Digital Health Checks
ORCHA is working with Public Health England to identify digital health products and services that are capable of delivering or supporting the delivery of the key elements of the current NHS Health Check. ORCHA is assisting PHE in identifying digital solutions which will be tested in a small-scale pilot in England in early 2021.
The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40 to 74. As the population gets older, there is a higher risk of developing certain conditions, such as stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. The NHS Health Check is designed to lower this risk by spotting the early signs of these conditions. More detail on the NHS Health Check pathway is provided in the full call document.
The full open call document can be downloaded below. This contains more detail on the NHS Health Check pathway, the types of solutions we are interested in, the requirements for these solutions, and how to respond.
If you have a digital solution that meets the core requirements and the minimum quality standards outlined in the document, please complete the survey and submit this to us by no later than 12:00 noon on the 16th December 2020.
