What is the Licence?
Deapp hospitals can sign up to an annual licence, this gives the staff access to the backend management of the app and allows patient tracking and other benefits. A licence allows sites to have full access to the Deapp team's help and support, plus we provide ‘top-up’ training and discounted resources.
Is This Available In My Country?
Deapp is only currently available in the UK, this is because the education is based on NHS practices, ISPAD and NICE guidelines. The curriculum was developed with a committee of Healthcare professionals and specialists, plus is voiced with a range of UK accents and dialects. Your country may use different units of measurements, medical terminology and phrases which is why it is unavailable elsewhere.
We are looking for partners to help adapt the education in other countries. If you are interested in bringing Deapp to your country, please get in contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
