Co-producing technology: harnessing digital solutions for social care: The report is based on a recent workshop, which explored how people who use services contribute to technological design and are changing the delivery of social care.
The Cumbria Neurological Alliance is in discussion with Liz Ashall-Payne to see how we can support the work of ORCHA
ORCHA is the Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Applications. Their main purpose is to carry out independent and impartial reviews of health and care related apps and to present this information clearly through thewebsite and professional platforms. They use a clinically and academically validated framework to thoroughly assess apps and present the results in an easy to search app database.
Live platforms make it easy to find relevant apps by category or keyword, and the relevant apps reviewed are summarised with two main scores – Value and Risk, as well as identifying key functions of the app.
This scoring and function system makes it easier for you to identify and compare the best apps for your needs, so you can achieve the best outcomes, with a better understanding of possible risks, to support your health and wellbeing needs or goals.
ORCHA powered clinical platforms can provide tailored functions to professionals to help find and recommend apps to their patients to enhance treatment plans.
By working with healthcare, the government, and developers, it is ORCHA’s mission to help deliver improved visibility of better and safer apps.
