Orcha to help NHS Digital populate their App Library

NHS Digital has enlisted the help of cluster member Orcha to speed up the number of clinically-approved tools available on the NHS Apps Library. The library currently includes 70 health apps spanning online services, lifestyle advice and support for a number of health conditions, and Orcha aims to help bring more verified service onto the market at a quicker pace, using a combination of manual and automated assessment processes to scour mobile app marketplaces for applications that can be safely used within clinical settings. The NHS Apps Library is due to go live towards the end of 2018, with a target of having 100 apps available by the launch.
