ORCHA’s Founding CEO contributes to The Economist’s Technology Quarterly

We’re delighted to see our Founding CEO, Liz Ashall-Payne’s, contribution to The Economist’s Technology Quarterly publication. Liz’s contribution, included in the article, ‘Apps interpreting data from wearable devices are helping people to live better’, discusses the appetite for digital health, and the quality of health and care apps that are available.

Liz flags that, while “Appetite for [health and wellness apps] is healthy, with around 5m app downloads per day”, “95% of those downloads will be deleted within 24 hours”.

ORCHA continually evaluates the quality of health and care apps, and Liz explores in the article how the maturation of the digital health market, and the introduction of new guidelines for health apps, is impacting the changing quality of such apps.
