Breaking Through a Major in Women Healthcare

The human arsenal might be hugely expansive in its nature, and yet it doesn’t have anything more valuable than our tendency to grow on a consistent basis. The stated tendency, in particular, has allowed us to hit upon some huge milestones, with technology appearing as a major member of this group. The reason why we hold technology in such a high regard is largely because of its skill-set, which ushered us towards all the possibilities that we couldn’t have imagined otherwise. Nevertheless, if we look beyond the surface for a second, it will become clear how the whole runner was also very much inspired by the way we applied those skills across a real-world environment. The latter component was, in fact, what gave the creation a spectrum-wide presence, including a timely appearance on our healthcare block. Technology’s foray into healthcare was perfect with its timing, as it came right when the sector was beginning to struggle against its own outdated structure. This reality, fortunately enough, went through a complete overhaul under the new regime, but even after achieving such a monumental feat, the new and budding medtech concept will somehow continue to produce all the right goods. The same has only turned more and more evident over the recent past, and truth be told, a newly-launched startup does a lot to keep that trend alive and kicking.

Aegis Ventures has officially teamed up with Northwell Holdings, the venture capital arm of Northwell Health, to launch a new startup called Upliv, which will base its entire operation around providing virtual menopause care. You see, when women go through the menopause phase, they are likely to experience a wide assortment of symptoms ranging from moderate to downright severe. These symptoms can include hot flashes, night sweats, sexual dysfunction, depression, insomnia, muscle aches, and more. Now, the problem is that our current healthcare setup doesn’t quite address the stated symptoms in an optimal manner, thus leaving many women in a grave amount of discomfort, and that’s exactly what Upliv is conceived to change. According to certain reports, the startup will partner with employers to provide virtual care services to their employees, who are experiencing perimenopause or menopause symptoms. Beyond the primary care, the company’s platform will also offer you an uninterrupted access to educational resources, prescriptions, live virtual events to connect with other patients, and video consultations with clinicians and health coaches who are trained in menopause care.

“Fortunately, a lot of women do go to their primary care physician or their OB/GYN to seek treatment, but most clinicians actually don’t have any specific menopause training or expertise,” said Allison Schoeneck, CEO of Upliv, “In fact, only about 20% of OB/GYN programs provide any type of menopause training. And as much as 75% of women receive no treatment at all. This means women are needlessly suffering, and they’re not supported in the ways that they ideally need. We created Upliv to change that paradigm.”

Make no mistake, there are many other companies, including Vira Health and Evernow that are focused on menopause care, but Upliv stands out on the back of its employer-centric approach. Also, it will, interestingly enough, deliver all services through a zero cost model.

Talk about Northwell’s motivation to enter into such a partnership, it is largely predicated upon a survey the company conducted on over 900 employees, a survey where it basically discovered that majority of its respondents experience moderate to severe menopause symptoms. Now, in order to solve this problem, and to test out the feasibility of Upliv’s approach, Northwell will initiate the relevant pilot program for a select number of nurses. However, there are already plans in place for a wider rollout soon.
