The Digital Health Assessment Framework is a US assessment that checks if your digital health product, or health app, meets the requirements of 400 criteria. These are 400 questions that we answer to score your digital health product against three main domains: clinical assurance and safety, data and privacy, and usability and accessibility.


An enhanced assessment includes a fourth domain: technical security and stability which reflects HIPAA guidelines in the United States and ensures appropriate provisions in place for protected health information.


You need to pass the DHAF so your digital health product will surface on our customer organisation App Libraries, Digital Health Formularies, and Digital Health Toolkits, which we develop for health and care organisations to access digital health products.
