ORCHA and TSA Give Health Apps Industry Seal of Approval

ORCHA and TSA (TSA is the industry body for technology enabled care (TEC) services) have launched a new website that identifies safe and effective health apps.

The site is intended to help telehealth commissioners and users find their way through the maze of products on the market to find cost effective apps that meet their needs.

Millions of people use apps every day to help manage health issues and medical conditions, but the quality of the 165,000 products available to the public varies, with some offering no medical benefit and others presenting risks to the user.

The new TSA ORCHA website allows users to:

  • Search, compare and download apps
  • Receive personal recommendations from their health and care professionals

TSA chief executive, Alyson Scurfield said:

‘People find it hard to choose the best app for their needs and the apps themselves don’t always deliver.

‘Our easy to use TSA ORCHA website, will help users and app purchasers choose effective products, whilst helping developers promote products that are safe and deliver for the end user.’

App developers that are TSA members can receive 70% discounts on app reviews. To find out more, get in touch and quote TSAappdiscount.

If you’re an app developer and would like to exhibit and present your app to delegates at October’s International Technology Enabled Care Conference, visit https://itecconf.org.uk/app-zone/, or get in touch to find out more about being a part of the App Zone.
