(Vendor Press Release) Happtique, a mobile health solutions company, announces it has certified 18 health and medical apps through its Health App Certification Program (HACP). This inaugural class is the first group of apps in the country to pass the rigorous HACP standards announced earlier this year. Each app that receives certification has passed both technical testing--the verification of privacy, security, and operability standards by global testing leader Intertek--and content testing, as completed by relevant, independent clinical experts.

"One of the major barriers to widespread clinical adoption of health apps is the inability of providers and patients to identify which apps to use. Happtique's Health App Certification Program offers an objective way for users to determine if an app will protect personal information, operate as promised, and ensure that the clinical information included in the app has been documented and verified," said Corey Ackerman, President and COO of Happtique.
