Kitemark plan for health apps

13th November 2014

Health apps could soon have a kitemark to indicate they are safe for use.

These plans have been backed by NHS chiefs in England.

The NHS is aiming to be 'paperless' by 2018 and give patients access to health records via laptops or mobile phones.

However, there are concerns surrounding data security.

With this in mind the kitemark will prove authenticity and give doctors the peace of mind to recommend apps to help patients manage their health conditions.
