Health App Libraries

Our curated Health App Libraries empower patients to take an active role in their health and wellbeing, improving health outcomes and reducing costs.

Half of the public is already using digital health, yet 80% of products in app stores do not meet safety standards. By giving patients access to a library of tested products, your organization will be helping to empower patients in a safe manner.

We white-label Health App Libraries to provide patients with a single source of digital health solutions compliant with relevant clinical, data and usability standards. The products are curated to include only the best products from a field of 365,000 digital health technologies, to meet your specific patients and goals. This may be to better manage diabetes, COPD or a heart condition; or improve medicine adherence across all patients.

The ORCHA Library is the critical platform infrastructure that establishes system-wide quality assurance. This approach enables improved health outcomes and reduced pressure on services across the system.

Digital Health Formularies

Our Digital Health Formularies give Healthcare Professionals the tools to safely prescribe digital health products.

The vast majority of people want their health and care professional to recommend a digital health product. So, similar to medicines, we must arm our professionals with the tools to find and recommend trusted digital health products as part of a quality assured end-to-end system.

Our Digital Health Formulary allows professionals to select the best digital health product for a patient from your formulary of digital health products, all assessed to meet standards for quality, evidence and data security. The formulary can also be refined into a toolkit to embed into every stage of a pathway. And with technologies curated into a single source of truth, Healthcare professionals do not need to remember multiple sites and logins, and delivers choice for both clinician and patient.

Once selected, the chosen product can be prescribed electronically, ensuring accuracy of dispensing, covering liability and tracking for recall or replacements.

ORCHA Review

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.

The Digital Health Assessment Framework

The Digital Health Assessment Framework is an open framework, accessible for anyone to use, to support the adoption of high-quality digital health technologies and help healthcare professionals and patients in the US to make better-informed decisions about which digital health tools best suit their needs.

The Framework includes criteria to assess for privacy and security, clinical assurance and safety, and usability. It was crafted to guidelines, regulations and best practices specific to the US for digital health technologies. It includes both the relevant existing US regulations and measures from international standards and frameworks.

Leading bodies across the US, including The American College of Physicians and the American Telemedicine Association, collaborated with industry leaders, including ORCHA, to develop the Framework. To find out more about the framework, and how ORCHA can help your organisation to rapidly and accurately measure technologies against it, please get in touch.
