We passed! ORCHA has approved us to be listed in their digital health app library

We are incredibly proud to announce that Dr Fertility has been independently assessed by the Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Apps (ORCHA) and has been approved for inclusion in the ORCHA app library. Not only did we pass, we scored 78% exceeding the pass threshold of 65%. 


Who are ORCHA?

ORCHA is an independent body that assesses digital products on behalf of its clients, including NHS England, to provide access to trusted and quality healthcare technologies through its libraries. Their process utilises over 300 different measures to assess compliance with relevant clinical, data and usability standards. The ORCHA quality standard is considered to be one of the best in the world. According to ORCHA, there are currently over 350,000 digital health solutions on the market, but only 20% of them meet their required safety standards. 


What does this mean?

With 85% of digital health apps falling below the ORCHA quality threshold, it can be challenging for clinicians to know which digital health applications can support their patients. As an approved app in the ORCHA digital health app library, healthcare professionals can now confidently signpost their patients to Dr Fertility. 


Changing the way you access fertility care

Our mission is to revolutionise fertility care. We support people from the very first step of their fertility journey by providing fertility education, quality products and easy online access to fertility specialists and testing. People can access the support they need, when they need it without a referral from their GP.  

We have worked exceptionally hard to obtain our Care Quality Commission Registration (CQC), which enables us to provide fertility health care services. Becoming approved by ORCHA is another key milestone and validates the gold standard that everyone in the Dr Fertility team strives to achieve for our users. 



“In an industry with an evolving regulatory landscape, we have been focused on working to the highest standards possible when building our service. We are striving to lead in best practice and will challenge the status quo when we believe things can be done better. Our passion is to deliver safe, effective, and high-quality patient-centric care in the most ethical way possible. So, we are absolutely delighted that Dr Fertility has been now recognised by ORCHA as trusted digital health technology.”      

-  Lucy Buckley, Co-Founder 


”It breaks our heart when we talk to people who feel anxious, alone and in limbo when trying to conceive. We believe it’s time to revolutionise fertility care so that everyone feels supported and in control of their own fertility journey. To be recognised as a quality assured and trustworthy digital health solution by ORCHA is a fantastic achievement for everyone at Dr Fertility who works incredibly hard to achieve our mission.”
