Data insights to improve outcomes

You get insightful data reports with your Digital Health Formulary too. This helps you track which digital health technologies your health and care professionals are recommending to patients, and which patients are acting on the recommendation to download health apps.  


You can then identify any gaps or trends in patient care and adjust your Formulary, adding new collections of digital health technologies.

The Formulary can be integrated with EPIC and Cerner, accessed through the dashboard to help professionals recommend digital health products to patients at the same time as prescribing medicines or other complementary treatments.


Professionals do not need to leave the electronic patient record (EPR) to recommend an app. Our system can automatically log them in using secure single sign on (SSO).

  • What is a Digital Health Formulary?

    A Digital Health Formulary is a collection of digital health products, or apps, that your organisation have chosen. They will have agreed that you can recommend them to patients and people who use your services.


    Only digital health products that pass assessments, and continue to pass them each year, will be available on the Digital Health Formulary.


    With a Digital Health Formulary you can send out text messages or emails to recommend digital health products, such as apps, to individual people who use your services, and keep track of everything you recommend. You can also create favourite lists of your most recommended apps.

  • How can I access a Digital Health Formulary?

    You can access a Digital Health Formulary through our ORCHA Pro Account or we can integrate it into certain software. We will customise the Digital Heath Formulary based on which digital health products, or apps, your organisation would like you to recommend.
