Health and Care Organisations

Health and care organisations across the world face the twin threat of increased demand and reduced financial resources. But there is a solution: digital health. Digital health solutions can deliver care that is more efficient, patient-centred, and at much greater scale than traditional care pathways.

With hundreds of thousands of apps to choose from and a lack of regulation amongst app marketplaces, ORCHA’s review process, Digital Health Libraries, and ability to integrate trusted solutions into care pathways, can unlock the benefits of digital health for your organisation in a safe, quality assured and compliant manner.

National Health Bodies

ORCHA is shaping the standards for digital health. Trusted by national health bodies in 11 countries (and growing), from Norway, to New Zealand, we offer solutions for improving population health outcomes at scale. In the UK, ORCHA works with the NHS in 50% of UK regions, and is part of the NHS Innovation Accelerator.

ORCHA offers a unique solution for digital health accreditation development on a national scale, allowing health bodies to create bespoke assessments that meet their requirements for gauging the quality assurance of digital health solutions. Discover how we can make your country a leader in healthcare innovation.

Health and Care Professionals

If you’re looking for ways to help your patients and service users outside of traditional appointments, digital health is a great place to start. With an ORCHA Pro Account, you can identify, use, recommend and prescribe quality assured health and care apps to your patients and service users, with confidence.

Trusted by the NHS and a growing number of national health bodies across the world, ORCHA can guide you towards activating and engaging your service users to incorporate digital health solutions into the daily self-management of their health and wellbeing.

Digital Health Suppliers

Meeting standards and regulations helps you to build trust in your technology and gain access to the health and care markets. But it can be difficult to know which standards and regulations are relevant, how to gain and maintain compliance, and how to capitalise on this. Our compliance and growth services are here to help you de-risk your digital health journey.

As the world leader in digital health accreditation, ORCHA will guide you every step of the way, ensuring you go through the necessary assessments when you are ready. Once passed, we can feature you in our digital health libraries, supplied to providers in most NHS regions, enabling healthcare systems to find and recommend your solution.

Education

Young people are digital natives, aren’t they? They all know how to use apps for everything, from banking, to health. That’s what you would assume, but ORCHA’s research indicates that the uptake of health and care apps amongst Millennials and Generation Z remains low, and those who do utilise health apps may not be doing so safely.

That’s why ORCHA created the Digital Healthy Schools programme. By providing educational establishments with the resources to teach young people about digital health, and the tools to engage with quality assured apps, we can help young people stay fitter and healthier for longer, reducing long term demand on primary and acute healthcare services.

What our clients say

“By working with ORCHA to create an online platform of apps that are safe for our young people to use, we know that we can encourage more young people to reach out for help, and, therefore, we can save more young lives.”

– Lisa Roxby, Papyrus, the UK Charity for the Prevention of Young Suicide

What our clients say

“ORCHA powers our health app library. They help us to break down the barriers and mitigate issues around digital health. Thanks to ORCHA, we are building the trust with clinical teams and have put in place the tools and governance they need.”

– Crystal Dennis, Interim Lead for Public Facing Digital Health Services, Our Dorset Digital

What our clients say

“ORCHA has helped us in a way we could never have helped ourselves. The breadth and depth of analysis that needs to go into the very many apps that are out there would not be achievable. ORCHA has helped us to hone down from a huge field of players available to those that are applicable in our environment.”

– Rachel Dunscombe, member of Healthtech Advisory Board, CEO of the NHS Digital Academy, global (non-US) leader and senior evangelist at KLAS, the collaborative of 170 healthcare organisations across 10 countries

What our clients say

“All physiotherapists should be incorporating some part of digital in the way they practice. If physiotherapists are digitally aware, digitally ready, and technology enabled then they can become better physiotherapists and provide better services to our patients. We’re working with ORCHA to try and enable our physios to be able to confidently recommend worthwhile apps to their service users, and for our members to use for their own benefit.”

– Euan McComiskie, The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy

What our clients say

“It gives you, in essence, a kitemark. Having something like ORCHA is a gamechanger because you can direct patients towards apps that will support the clinical information that you’re giving them.”

– Dr Devender Roberts, Maternity Clinical Director, Consultant in Obstetrics and Fetal Medicine to the Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust
