Empower the next generation to use safe digital health
There is a wealth of digital health products on unregulated app stores, that young people can access at the click of a button.
ORCHA’s Digital Healthy Schools App Libraries address safety challenges by enabling students to search for and download age-appropriate, independently reviewed health and care apps.
We’ve created a pastoral package to teach students about the benefits of digital health, but also how to navigate the complex landscape of apps that are available to choose from. Whether you are a local authority or educational institution, Digital Healthy Schools helps you to help young people, and the staff that support them, manage their health and wellbeing.

The public, service users and patients have a great rate of engagement with ORCHA app recommendations.
The ORCHA Review is a robust digital health assessment that underpins a large proportion of the world’s national and regional digital accreditation models.
Our intelligent Review looks at a digital health technology’s nature and purpose, and identifies which of the 300+ criteria points it meets across Clinical/Professional Assurance, Data & Privacy, and Usability & Accessibility. The Review comprises nationally recognised digital health standards and regulations, and will soon include full integration of the NICE Evidence Standards Framework. ORCHA’s algorithm looks at how appropriately the technology meets the relevant and compulsory standards, producing an objective and independent score.
Bespoke Digital Health Libraries
ORCHA offers bespoke Digital Health Libraries to help you align digital health with your organisational, regional, or national priorities. Augment your services with a digital health platform.
Our Libraries are a proven, effective method for distributing digital health solutions. Choose the health and care condition areas for which you’d like relevant apps to appear, personalise your Library with your organisation’s branding, and allow your professionals and service users to access independent information about the quality assurance of specific apps. Your bespoke Digital Health Library can take the guise of a dedicated Digital Health Library website, or an API that feeds through to your website, depending on your requirements. The ORCHA Pro Solution can also be added to the Library, giving professionals additional features, including app recommendation.
ORCHA’s Digital Health Libraries come with a bundled implementation support package, tailored to each deployment and delivered through the initial three months of implementation before Account Management takes over.
Our implementation support package enables organisations to familiarise their admins and professionals with navigating the Digital Health Library, as well helping to activate their professionals in utilising digital health within their practice. The package includes set-up and configuration support, training sessions, digital campaign development and support, and ongoing performance monitoring and management. Performance reporting gives you data on all aspects of the Digital Health Library’s and Pro Solution’s (where applicable) usage.
Digital Healthy Schools
To help local authorities and educational institutions unlock the power of digital health for young people and their communities, ORCHA has developed the Digital Healthy Schools programme. Combining a searchable App Library with pastoral resources, the programme teaches children and young adults how to use digital health safely.
A bespoke Digital Healthy Schools App Library allows students and teachers alike to search for and download age-appropriate health and care apps. Every app that appears on the Library has been assessed by ORCHA to determine its quality assurance. On request, the platform also allows teachers and support staff to find and discretely recommend apps to students, to ensure they use the best app for their specific needs. We also offer resources to help schools promote the programme to teachers and pupils.
ORCHA Pro Account
The ORCHA Pro Account gives health and care professionals access to thousands of independent app reviews, and the tools to build a formulary and recommend chosen apps directly to service users or specific cohorts.
With people 90% more likely to use an app recommended by a professional, the Pro Account enables professionals to precisely deliver the most suitable solution directly to the service user, to help them better manage their health or care need. The Pro Account gives you access to the ORCHA App Library, which contains more than 6,000 Reviews of health and care apps across hundreds of condition areas. Search for a digital health solution, read its ORCHA Review, then digitally recommend it directly to a service user at the click of a button. If your organisation has an ORCHA Library, get in touch to see if your Pro Account can be integrated into this Library.
