Better health apps

ORCHA platform

A new website is now live in Lancashire and South Cumbria which gives nearly 2m people and the clinicians that serve them access to the best health and care apps that are available.

ORCHA – which stands for Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Apps – links to a range of health apps that have received fully impartial reviews by doctors and other clinical experts, with scoring criteria added to the reviews to help make informed decisions with more confidence more quickly. Once you’ve decided which app to try, ORCHA will easily allow you to download it direct from the website.

In the video below Dr Amanda Thornton, Digital Health Clinical Lead for Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria, talks about the benefits to patients and clinicians.
