Free 3 month access to Orcha’s COVID-19 Health & Care App Formulary
ORCHA has been assessing health apps for the NHS since 2015. Today, we launch a free COVID-19 health and care app formulary, so that consumers, and health and care professionals, can find quality apps to help self-management of health and wellbeing, remote monitoring, and online service delivery during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of the mobile and web-based apps also help to keep pressure off the NHS at this time.
As a free-to-use resource, the ORCHA COVID-19 app formulary site includes reviews of health and care apps across a range of conditions areas relevant to the COVID-19 pandemic, including reviews of a number of specialised COVID-19 apps or modules launched to date. The condition areas of focus include apps to help self-manage:
- Anxiety and mental wellbeing
- Muscular and pain-management solutions
Further, ORCHA is offering its Pro Accounts free to all for the next three months. This will allow health and care professionals to recommend apps directly to patients via text or email, for free. This service will be available for free from 6th April to 6th July 2020, at which time ORCHA will reassess the situation.
