The public, service users and patients have a great rate of engagement with ORCHA app recommendations.
The ORCHA Review is a robust digital health assessment that underpins a large proportion of the world’s national and regional digital accreditation models.
Our intelligent Review looks at a digital health technology’s nature and purpose, and identifies which of the 300+ criteria points it meets across Clinical/Professional Assurance, Data & Privacy, and Usability & Accessibility. The Review comprises nationally recognised digital health standards and regulations, and will soon include full integration of the NICE Evidence Standards Framework. ORCHA’s algorithm looks at how appropriately the technology meets the relevant and compulsory standards, producing an objective and independent score.
Bespoke Digital Health Libraries
ORCHA offers bespoke Digital Health Libraries to help you align digital health with your organisational, regional, or national priorities. Augment your services with a digital health platform.
Our Libraries are a proven, effective method for distributing digital health solutions. Choose the health and care condition areas for which you’d like relevant apps to appear, personalise your Library with your organisation’s branding, and allow your professionals and service users to access independent information about the quality assurance of specific apps. Your bespoke Digital Health Library can take the guise of a dedicated Digital Health Library website, or an API that feeds through to your website, depending on your requirements. The ORCHA Pro Solution can also be added to the Library, giving professionals additional features, including app recommendation.
The ORCHA App Library
Our App Library makes sense of the hundreds of thousands of health and care apps that exist in unregulated app stores. Search over 6,000 apps that have all undergone the ORCHA Review and received an ORCHA Score.
Developed by clinicians, ORCHA’s App Library gives you unlimited access to thousands of independent app reviews across a broad spectrum of conditions, each of which includes a breakdown of key assessment criteria relating to Clinical/Professional Assurance, Data & Privacy, and Usability & Accessibility. Our Member Account allows you to discover the strengths and weaknesses of an app before downloading it. With our Pro Account, you can digitally recommend apps directly to patients and service users. Feel confident in accessing quality assured digital health. Is your digital doctor qualified?
ORCHA Pro Account
The ORCHA Pro Account gives health and care professionals access to thousands of independent app reviews, and the tools to build a formulary and recommend chosen apps directly to service users or specific cohorts.
With people 90% more likely to use an app recommended by a professional, the Pro Account enables professionals to precisely deliver the most suitable solution directly to the service user, to help them better manage their health or care need. The Pro Account gives you access to the ORCHA App Library, which contains more than 6,000 Reviews of health and care apps across hundreds of condition areas. Search for a digital health solution, read its ORCHA Review, then digitally recommend it directly to a service user at the click of a button. If your organisation has an ORCHA Library, get in touch to see if your Pro Account can be integrated into this Library.
