An App a Day… Helping Humber Stay Happy and Healthy
NHS partners across the Humber are breaking new ground with an innovation designed to help people lead healthier lives from their smartphone and tablet.
With more than 325,000 health apps on the market, there is now a solution to help residents of the Humber region find the best and safest ones, in the shape of an easy-to-use library on the web: humberhealthapps.co.uk
For the first time, residents across the Humber can access a raft of reviewed apps to improve their health and well-being from a single source – safe in the knowledge that they have been tried and tested, and that their personal data is secure.
Each app is subjected to seven stages of rigorous testing to investigate how safe and user-friendly it is, and to assess any potential risks it may hold, before getting a clear and transparent review score that is shown on the apps library. With upwards of 200 new health and care apps hitting the market every day, the library is updated constantly to keep pace with the latest clinical guidance.
