Apps are a great way to get health and mental wellbeing information; helping us to live healthier lives. The world of digital health has accelerated since Covid-19 and today around 5 million people download a health app every day, that’s 25% higher than before Covid -19.
With an estimated 366,000 health and fitness related apps available on app stores, it can be hard to know which ones we can trust. That’s why the Charity teamed up with ORCHA (the Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Applications) to create a website of reviewed health and wellbeing related apps for our beneficiaries. Learn more about Orcha Health here.
The ORCHA website rates the apps based on user experience, clinical assurance and data privacy, so you can feel confident in the app that you are choosing. Here you can get trusted, impartial information about health related apps that you can download onto your smart phone and use to improve your health and wellbeing.
Whether you’re trying to manage your sleep, quit smoking, lose weight or improve your mental health, there are apps you can access for support.
