Digital health technology assessments
How do you provide assurance that your digital health products are safe to recommend to patients?
The ORCHA Assessment Platform looks for a digital health product’s compliance against essential standards needed for assurance, covering the four key pillars of quality: data and privacy, security, accessibility, and professional assurance.
We can assess products against the ORCHA Baseline Review and specific international frameworks, including the US Digital Health Assessment Framework, the NHS DTAC and the European ISO 82304-2. We can also build a unique standard, to meet your brand’s precise needs.
Our agile end-to-end technology allows us to review and certify digital health technologies accurately at unmatched speed, and to re-review products after updates, ensuring checks for continued compliance are in place.
Digital Health Academy
The Digital Health Academy is the UK’s first accredited education and training programme to help all frontline health and care professionals navigate the fast-evolving and sometimes complex area of digital health.
The foundation-level course was launched earlier this year, giving NHS professionals a basic understanding of digital health. The course has achieved huge success and has become a core tool used by NHS organisations to build a digital ready frontline workforce.
During 2022 ORCHA plans to launch a number of clinical specialist modules, to enable health and care professionals to learn more about digital health in their specific field. These include include modules on Digital Health in Mental Health, MSK and Diabetes.
ORCHA is now making sponsorship available to organisations seeking to place their brand alongside a clinical speciality within this leading development in healthcare professional education.
