11 NATIONAL BODIES
We deliver review and accreditation services across three continents.
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.
As digital health products are continuously updated, ORCHA continuously re-assesses all health and care apps that appear on our Digital Health Libraries. Our intelligent review platform makes this possible.
Our Review Engine automatically detects when a developer implements a new version of its digital health product via the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. ORCHA’s Review Team then schedule a Re-Review, ensuring that every app assessment on our Digital Health Libraries reflects the most up-to-date version of the digital health solutions. This process closes the accreditation loop by constantly monitoring all reviewed digital health solutions for any changes in compliance.
Enhanced Review Modules
Health and care organisations often have additional, specific areas they need an app to be evaluated against. The ORCHA Review Engine can add these as an additional layer to the Review.
There are currently seven Enhanced Review areas, including: User/Patient Experience Analysis, Specialist Clinical Assessment, Commercial & Financial Stability, Enhanced Evidence Assessment, Clinical Safety Analysis, Enhanced Data Analysis, and Security & Technical Stability Assessment. New modules are continuously being developed as we explore new digital health assessment areas.
ORCHA’s track record in delivering national digital health accreditation programmes, together with our review builder tool, means that you can deliver an exemplary digital health accreditation programme, efficiently.
Compile your preferred review and accreditation approach using an intuitive, flexible, review builder tool.

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.

Developed with health and care providers, ORCHA’s unique methodology helps organisations to successfully transform services by embedding digital health into care pathways and driving uptake within target populations.
Applicable at a local, regional or national level, the ORCHA Transformation Model is formed of three key elements: accreditation development, strategic alignment, and a rolling programme of implementations across patient pathways. Our experienced digital health Implementations Team will work with you to identify the most appropriate target audiences, scope the target service improvements, estimate the programme’s ROI, pinpoint the best digital health solutions, and agree an activation strategy.
