About Us

Improving lives with the best digital health

Healthcare is in the middle of a digital revolution, yet 80% of digital health products do not meet standards. We are the global leader in providing access to trusted digital health, having reviewed more digital health products than anyone in the world.

Who we Help

Our agile end-to-end technology allows us to review and certify digital health technology at unmatched speed, 5,000x faster than anyone.

This enables us to provide safe, accredited, compliant and trusted digital health libraries, which today hold 9,000 assessed products for health and care professionals to accurately prescribe to patients.


Our customers include Public Health England, MHRA, NHS Digital, Mental Health Commission of Canada and the American Telemedicine Association.


Our Review assesses Clinical Assurance, Data Privacy, and Usability.


We provide transparency on the quality of digital health solutions.


Our Digital Health Libraries support populations across the globe.


Professionals use ORCHA to prescribe apps directly to service users.

We are the world’s largest single source of digital health compliance

When governments, and health and care organisations, require apps that will safely make the biggest impact on improving health outcomes, they talk to us. We take digital health from policy to practice, providing health and care professionals with the tools and support they need to effectively prescribe and monitor the usage of digital health solutions. Our tools work: professionals agree that they improve the adoption of apps and the self-management of conditions.

We make digital health a reality for organisations, professionals, digital health suppliers and populations worldwide. From conception through to distribution, we provide transparency on the quality assurance, distribution and commissioning of digital health apps.

Our award-winning approach to digital health has gained the trust of some of the world’s biggest healthcare systems. Today, we conduct reviews for health and care providers worldwide, from Norway to New Zealand. We provide services across the NHS in the UK, and across Europe, North America, the Middle East, and Australasia.

Learn how we can help you

Digital health is a rapidly evolving market, yet one name remains a constant: ORCHA. Trusted by health and care systems, app developers and populations across the world, we can unlock the power of digital health for you.

In our brief introduction video, our founding CEO, Liz Ashall-Payne, gives an insight into how our digital health methodology can improve outcomes for service users, deliver savings and open up efficiencies for health and care organisations, and help app developers improve and gain adoption of their app.


Unique approach

You wouldn’t take medicine that hasn’t been tested, so why trust an unregulated health app? ORCHA’s unique review process includes the rigour of international clinical, security and usability standards to measure the health of health apps.

In a world in which disinformation, fake news and disingenuous apps are rife, ORCHA’s comprehensive and authoritative approach to digital health provides you with the confidence and reassurance you need to make digital health work for you.

Our story

Ideas can change the world. In 2012, Liz Ashall-Payne had an idea that would transform healthcare using the power of digital technology. That idea became ORCHA. Since then, we have been on a journey involving thousands of app developers, tens of thousands of healthcare professionals and millions of individuals across 11 countries.

This is our story, and it’s only just getting started.

Our values

Fun. Trust. Curiosity. Collaboration. These four values sit at the core of everything we do. It’s these values that inform our work every day; that drive us forward; that help us to make decisions and leave a legacy of meaningful transformation.

Our team

Everyone at ORCHA is driven by the change we are making to health and care systems and, most importantly, in improving people’s health and wellbeing. It keeps us motivated to keep questioning.

Our Review Team constantly understands, applies and helps develop new review measures; the Development Team imagines new ways for our platform to be more robust; our Implementation Team is curious about change and how best to make it happen within organisations; and no one quite knows what our Intelligence Team does to unearth new ways of understanding the digital health world.
