The ORCHA platform is now live in Lancashire and South Cumbria so for the first time nearly 2m people and the clinicians that serve them have 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 this video, Dr Amanda Thornton, Clinical Director at Lancashire Care Foundation Trust, talks about the benefits to patients and clinicians.
