Medical/Professional Care and Advice
The content on our website is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical care by a qualified doctor or other suitable healthcare professional (“Professional”). You should always check with your Professional if you have any concerns about your health, your condition or any treatment you may be taking or planning to take.
When you receive an App Recommendation from a Professional via an ORCHA powered platform, the Recommendation is being made based on that Professional's judgement about the suitability of an App for your specific needs and the information provided by ORCHA upon which the Professional is relying upon. ORCHA Reviews are in turn largely based on the information provided by App developers the App itself and/or available in the public domain via a connected website or the relevant ‘app store’. We are reliant on this information in undertaking our reviews and are not responsible for inaccuracies or errors in the information provided. If you are recommended an app that comes with a cost (be it that the app must be 'Paid' for or has 'In App Purchases'), unless expressly agreed in writing, you are responsible for this cost and can not seek to receive reimbursement.
App Developers are governed in most jurisdictions by laws that require them not to make misleading or inaccurate statements about their products and if you believe that any information provided via our reviews is inaccurate or misleading please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will immediately investigate this.
Neither the Professional nor ORCHA are responsible for inaccuracies or errors in that information. Even where the information provided is accurate, the ORCHA Review cannot guarantee that an App will perform as promised in any specific circumstances or that the App is free now or in the future from any bugs or issues that might affect its performance and neither the Professional or ORCHA can be held responsible for issues arising in these circumstances.
If you are a healthcare professional, this website is intended to support and enhance, but not to replace your own judgement and knowledge.

The ORCHA Review and Service
The ORCHA Baseline Review (“OBR”) is ORCHA’s first level of assessment and involves a detailed ‘desktop’ analysis of Digital Health solutions looking across all of the key areas of regulation and compliance.
Whilst a high scoring App is not guaranteed to be effective or safe, or a poorly scoring App is not necessarily ineffective or unsafe, it does mean that the relevant Developer has taken more or less care over the Apps compliance with these key Standards than other similar Apps. In the critical area of health and care, we believe that developers should take compliance with Standards extremely seriously.
ORCHA are not promoting or recommending any particular Apps through this process but are providing impartial information about an App's compliance with Standards and a mechanism for end users to easily identify those Apps that best meet those Standards and to check which ones don’t. You can read more about the OBR in more detail here.
The ORCHA Review process is the most advanced review mechanism for health and care Apps. We evaluate more Apps than anyone, so that you can be aware of which Apps are safe to use, and which are not. An ORCHA Score below 65% would indicate that an App has some issues that users should investigate further before using the App. Scores below 45% indicate that an App has considerable issues or challenges and, in its current form, is potentially unhelpful or unsafe. Conversely, Apps which score 65% and higher achieve ‘ORCHA Approved’ status as they demonstrate a good performance level across our Review criteria.
ORCHA’s Review has 7 stages:
Stage 1: Exclusion Filters
All Apps available on the App Store and Google Play in the ‘health, wellbeing/fitness and medical’ sections are filtered and organised into over 350 health and care condition categories.
Stage 2: Levels
The ORCHA App Classification system categorises Apps in one of five levels (0-4) based on their area of focus and functional capabilities. These Levels span from Simple Wellbeing (Level 0) to Regulated Apps which are subject to formal regulation (Level 4).
Stage 3: Functions
Our App Evaluation also includes gathering information on all of the Apps’ key functions and features. Consequently, users can search for Apps according to their functional capabilities.
Stage 4: Review Domains
We score Apps according to their Data Privacy, Clinical Assurance and User Experience. Each of these Review Domains receives a separate score, which are then combined to give the App’s overall ORCHA Score.
Stage 5: The Score
The ORCHA Review comprises questions across the three Review Domains, with some questions earning positive points and some earning negative points. An App’s ORCHA Score is built up from the answers to each of these questions, ensuring that all Apps are evaluated fairly and uniformly.
Stage 6: Developer Notification and Publication
When the Review is complete, the relevant developer is notified and given the opportunity to preview the Review ahead of its publication. Previewing the Review allows the developer to highlight any issues before it is published on our platforms. Once the notification period has expired, we publish the Review across our platforms.
Stage 7: Post Publication Review Monitoring and Management
All ORCHA Reviews remain valid until a new version of the App is released. If a new version of an App is not produced within 18 months of the current version, the App is marked as ‘Out of Date’, and its ORCHA Score starts to degrade at a rate of 5% per month. New versions of Apps will be automatically detected and subsequently Re-Reviewed by ORCHA.
