CATCH - The Common Approach to Children's Health

Innovation Type: Care Model


Innovation Origin: NHS Innovator Accelerator (NIA)

App which empowers parents to decide if self-care at home for their child is more appropriate than accessing services

CATCH (Common Approach to Children's Health) addresses the inappropriate use of NHS services when self-care would be more appropriate. The app delivers parents suitable and understandable information when they need and want it, in a timely and measured way, via smartphone or tablet.

Support and clinical knowledge is aggregated from an area's local GPs and public health department, building a region-specific, tailored and trusted resource that parents can re-use, giving them the confidence to look after their children at home. CATCH curates this local health information and articles from trusted sources, such as NHS Choices.
