Description

 

The process of the AppSalut applications accreditation consists of 120 criteria, grouped in four blocks: degree of usability of the application; technological aspects: safety aspects and aspects of content in clinical terms based on evidence or adopted clinical guidelines. The Pasiona Team is responsible for the first three blocks of accreditation, ensuring that the application meets the criteria of technology, usability and security which are required to be included in the portal. The fourth of the blocks, concerning the medical content, remains in the hands of the own specialists in health and well-being.

 

The portal is a tool of maximum utility for apps developers, which provides a unified showcase, accredited by the Generalitat, for professionals that can directly display all data generated by users in an orderly manner and even incorporate it into the clinical history of the user. And for the citizens who utilize AppSalut, it is a space in which they may access apps confident in the security and reliability that is ensured by the validation process.
