June 1st, 2022 we are celebrating the launch of Horizon Europe project Label2Enable.
In this project fourteen organisations from seven countries (Belgium, Croatia, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, and Spain) will join forces for two years to promote the ISO/TS 82304-2 health app assessment framework and label in Europe.
There is a growing recognition that health apps can strengthen healthcare, self-management, and prevention. However, referrers and users currently lack information to determine the quality and reliability of health apps. App manufacturers experience the varying national approval processes as confusing and unclear as to what is expected and the depth of evidence that is required by each approval body.
The Label2Enable project uses ISO/TS 82304-2 and its health app quality label to break through the impasse and promote broad use and ditto supply of quality health apps. Petra Hoogendoorn will coordinate Label2Enable from the National eHealth Living Lab, Leiden University Medical Center the Netherlands, Department of Public Health and Primary Care.
