New local health apps library to manage your health and wellbeing from home

New local health apps library to manage your health and wellbeing from home

Online and digital health and wellbeing services have seen a huge boom in recent years but with thousands of apps out there it can be hard to know what is trustworthy.

That's why Derbyshire County Council has been working in partnership with The Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Apps (ORCHA) to develop a new digital apps library.

Health and care professionals and Derbyshire residents can now search and download from 100s of quality assured health and wellbeing apps.

All of the apps on the new library have undergone rigorous checks by ORCHA to ensure that they are of the highest possible quality.

All the apps have been reviewed against over 300 criteria including ease of use, clinical/professional assurance and data and privacy.

Apps include help with mental wellbeing, healthy lifestyles and even long-term condition management.

Visit the new website at derbyshire.orcha.co.uk and search and compare apps for FREE.
