Our member ORCHA gave us some Apps recommendations for COVID-19: Apps to help self-management!
There is a plethora of apps that can help with health-management, remote-monitoring and staying healthy. Apps not only help to keep pressure off the NHS in a time of high demand, but also allow patients to protect themselves and others from unnecessary risk. However, app stores are unregulated, and 85% of apps do not meet ORCHA’s quality threshold.

To support NHS efforts, ORCHA have listed tested apps for you to be aware of, that support:
  • Self-care, managing anxiety, and wellbeing for all
  • Management of diabetes, respiratory and heart condition symptoms
  • Reducing pressure on NHS services.
  • Each of the following apps meet ORCHA’s quality threshold for apps that are safe to use.
