LONDON – The National Health Service is inviting developers to submit applications to the NHS Apps Library, a resource for patients to access safe and effective digital tools. The organization is working with mHealth apps library Our Mobile Health to assess digital health care apps for inclusion in the Apps Library, which is currently in public beta version. “Patients can be confident that the apps they are using are safe and trusted,” said Hazel Jones, program director at NHS Digital, in a statement. “We are looking forward to working with Our Mobile Health in developing that process.” Our Mobile Help will ensure the apps meet NHS technical, clinical and safety standards, and help connect people to the information and services they need easily and effectively. The NHS Apps Library currently contains 46 apps to help patients manage a variety of conditions such as diabetes, mental health and COPD. “Digital technology is now a part of all our lives and in the NHS we want to harness the advantages of digital to improve services and empower patients to take control of their own health,” said Juliet Bauer, chief digital officer at NHS England, in a statement.
