Digital platform set to improve experience for menopause patients



Menopause app balance has partnered with healthcare technology company Cognitant Group, and its health information prescription service, Healthinote, to provide women with extensive information and support when trying to make informed decisions about their menopause treatment.

The free app was founded by leading menopause specialist Dr Louise Newson and has been designed to put the power into women’s hands by allowing them to go to their doctor armed with the right knowledge.

The symptom tracker enables users to download a personalised health report to take to their healthcare appointment and share their journey within the community.

Gaele Lalahy, COO of balance said:

“We are excited to be working with Healthinote and embrace innovative digital health platforms as a conduit to empower women to make informed decisions about their health during the perimenopause and menopause.

“This partnership will help thousands of women access evidence-based information via digital prescriptions from their healthcare professional in a brand-new way.

“We will continue to be at the forefront of ground-breaking research and digital innovations around menopause and share our knowledge to encourage conversations and support.”

The Healthinote platform collects evidence-based health information that doctors, nurses and pharmacists can share with their patients via a digital health information prescription.

Integrated with over 3,000 GP practices in the UK, Healthinote is a curated library of trusted health information from a range of providers such as the NHS, charities and now balance.

Personalised information prescriptions can be prepared in the platform, along with wording to accompany the information prescription link sent to the patient.

Healthinote will be able to signpost medical professionals towards balance’s up-to-date content and evidence-based information that they can then pass onto their patients for support.

This relationship between the services is set to help thousands of women in finding the most suitable information about symptoms and treatments.

Dr. Juhi Tandon, Medical Director at Cognitant, providers of the Healthinote platform, said:

“As a GP with a specialist interest in women’s health, I am delighted to welcome the balance app to the Healthinote library which will really help augment our consultations around menopause and the peri-menopause.

“Doctors often struggle to impart all the information women need to make an informed decision about menopause / perimenopause management in their time-pressured consultation.

“So, being able to efficiently prescribe reliable, trusted and up-to-date education about women’s health issues will benefit both the patient and clinician journey.

“Providing the right information at the right time and in the right format will empower women to make the right decision for them.”
