Doctor Care Anywhere is celebrating a double success after reviews of its platform.

The HealthTech 50 firm’s online booking services now hold the class 1 medical device status, meeting the requirements of the UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) assessment.

The service is designed to offer users the ability to book medical appointments online 24/7, accommodating the varying schedules and locations of patients.

Doctor Care Anywhere said the classification reflects the platform’s adherence to high safety and quality standards in healthcare delivery; emphasis on data security and privacy; and commitment to regulatory compliance and healthcare efficiency.

It also recently commissioned Orcha – the Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Apps – to undertake a digital health product assessment of its website and apps.

Orcha’s reviews cover 350+ digital health product points that underpin over 70% of the world’s digital health accreditation models.

The pass mark for the assessment is 65%, with only 20% of organisations taking part achieving this first time around. Doctor Care Anywhere achieved 83% for its website and 86% on both iOS and Android for its mobile apps.

Doctor Care Anywhere works with partners including AXA Health, Nuffield Health, Pluxee UK, Shepherds Friendly, Meta, AON, Perkbox and many more.

It recently appointed BUPA UK CTO Luis de Miguel as chief digital information officer.
