NHS to ‘kitemark’ health-related apps

An NHS “kitemark” for health-related smartphone apps is one of a number of new technological initiatives being backed by NHS chiefs in England.

With the rapid growth of health-related apps for mobile phones and other personal devices, an NHS “kitemark” is to be introduced to validate those deemed to be safe for patients to use.

This authentication process would give doctors peace of mind to recommend apps to help patients manage health conditions.
