Version 6 of the ORCHA Baseline Review (OBR) is our most advanced and comprehensive evaluation to date. This is the 6th iteration of the OBR since it was first launched in 2015. In each iteration we have built more criteria for evaluation into the review.
We have built upon OBR version 5 to include a more extensive and sophisticated functional app categorisation. We have increased data capture around app features and data usage. We have also been inspired by the NICE Evidence Standards Framework and integrated the “ORCHA ESF”, which includes incorporating an increased analysis of the evidence supplied in support of the app’s clinical assurance.
These changes have supplemented our review to ensure its robustness and to help us responsibly evaluate digital health solutions.
