Orca Health is a private software company founded by Matt Berry, who is currently its CEO. Based in Sandy, Utah, the company develops mobile patient education software for physicians on Apple iOS.[1][2][3] Orca Health has collaborated with Harvard University to develop applications and ebooks relating to the human heart.[2][4][5] As of July 2012, Orca Health has 12 employees.[3]

Applications[edit]

In September 2010, Orca Health released SpineDecide on the iOS App Store. The application allows physicians to distribute "Digital Handouts", which can include images and videos of the patient or their medical imagery.[6] The application educates patients about the structure and anatomy of the human spine.[7]

AgingSpine was released in January 2011, followed by FootDecide and HandDecide. In the fall of 2011, EyeDecide and ENTDecide were added to Orca’s Decide Series of patient education applications. KidsDental was released in 2012.[8] This app showed parents how to help their children care for their teeth.

Orca Health currently has twelve total applications available on the iOS App Store.[9]
