Organisation Description

ORCHA is the World’s leading health app evaluation and advisor organisation. We help governments, health and social care organisations to choose and deliver health apps that will safely make the biggest impact in terms of improving outcomes. Our tools help health professionals to prescribe and monitor usage of health apps. They’re proven to increase take-up and self-management of conditions.

Passionate about good apps, we provide a range of services to help app developers create better apps, and once great, get spotted by the people that matter.

This breakthrough approach to monitoring the market for new apps, evaluation and community adoption has won awards. We conduct reviews for NHS Digital and NHS England is accelerating the uptake of our service across the NHS, placing ORCHA in its National Innovation Accelerator Programme.
