Gambless, a mobile app that offers confidential and remote assistance to problem gamblers, has been approved as ORCHA therapeutic tech, making it accessible to international public health organisations.
ORCHA is a non-profit medical software assessment and delivery organisation that is trusted by national health authorities in 11 countries, including the NHS in the United Kingdom.
The agency’s ‘Clinical Index’ assesses new technologies against a set of over 350 criteria, including clinical assurance, data protection, and accessibility requirements and regulations.
Safe and trustworthy
Maurizio Savino, the CEO of Gambless, explained: “We are very pleased to receive this recognition. ORCHA certification gives our users, as well as health organisations all over the world, assurance that the Gambless mobile app is safe and trustworthy.
“The effectiveness of our app was already known to us. We receive constant messages and emails from problem gamblers who thank us for our support tools. The app, created by our team of psychologists, enables users to learn more about their condition, teaching them how to control their impulses, and thus how to prevent gambling harm.”
Gambless has added Spanish and Japanese to its website as a result of its ORCHA certification, bringing its total care assistance for vulnerable users to five languages.
The Gambless app aspires to be the global standard for gambling damage assistance, with 1.2 billion first language speakers and natives from more than 30 countries having access to it.
