What is ORCHA? ((The Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Applications)

ORCHA is a Health Care Application Platform that carry out independent and impartial reviews of health and care related apps and uses a combination of manual and automated assessment processes to scour mobile app marketplaces for applications that can be used safely within clinical settings.   The primary focus will be for our 0-19 LHYPFS Health Care Practitioners and non-clinical teams to signpost service users to the ORCHA platform via the LCC website and recommend health care app(s) that will support them in the management of common health conditions, whilst being confident that they are quality assured app(s) in accordance with ORCHA assurances. 

What are the benefits?

The benefits of using the ORCHA digital platform will be to aid improving health solutions by accessing app(s) in specific areas such as weight management, mental health & emotional wellbeing, stress management, breast feeding etc and to be able to share the information simply with our service users.
