Onboarding and offboarding
Initial scoping and set up of an ORCHA microsite involves branding it with the client logo, with the opportunity to then tailor site visuals and language to support user engagement. ORCHA offers templates and documentation (e.g. communications strategies and collateral) to guide this process and ensure that the website is engaging for the particular target demographic.
For general users of the website, there are on-screen cues, there is an FAQs section, and there is a video which explains how to navigate the site to search, filter, and find the best apps for their needs. In addition to this, there is a function to ‘Contact Us’ for help. Outside of the site, ORCHA provides each client with bespoke physical and digital collateral/assets designed to engage the target demographic.
For ‘ORCHA Pro Account’ users using the site to support their care delivery, this existing support is extended to facilitate engagement with ORCHA’s additional ‘Pro’ functionality, not least the facility to ‘recommend’ specific apps to specific individuals. To support this, ORCHA offers a mixture of stakeholder presentations, face-to-face onsite training, online training webinars, and ‘train the trainer’ sessions to build internal capacity; as well as an additional ‘walk through’ style video.
