Genomapp’s objective is to help people understand the health information contained in their DNA, guaranteeing maximum scientific rigor.
A year ago we got in touch with the TIC Salut Social Foundation, an entity belonging to the Department of Health of Catalonia that is dedicated to promoting the development and use of Information and Communication Technologies in the Health sector in order to obtain its approval certification.
After an exhaustive review by Salut Social, we can announce that Genomapp has obtained the certification of its Functional block.
This means that Genomapp has passed the 18 mandatory and 6 recommended criteria of the block.
Some examples of the criteria passed are:
- The language is plain, it uses technical terms only when strictly necessary, facilitating the user’s understanding.
- The app specifies where it extracts the information it offers as content. The sources will be collected in the application itself in a general section or referenced to each content.
The object of the certification has been both the app for iOS and the app for Android devices (version 7.xx).
Currently, we continue working on the apps and including usability, accessibility, aesthetic and technology improvements. Likewise, we aspire to obtain certificates in the rest of the countries in which we operate, always with the aim of providing our users with the best health information service based on their DNA data.
