Confusing choice of health apps made easier
Many people use apps to help them find information about health conditions and to help manage illness. With so many self-help apps available it can be difficult to choose one that meets the highest standards. Healthwatch Shropshire keeps an eye out for developments in health information and welcome the creation of the NHS Digital Apps Library. The NHS tests apps and if they meet quality standards for clinical effectiveness, safety, usability and accessibility they are awarded a ‘NHS Approved’ stamp.
