New App Helps Manage Menopausal Symptoms

NewAppThe first-ever menopause mobile app is now available for download!

MenoPro, launched by the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) and developed by researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, helps women going through menopause. The APP is designed to help patients determine if they are a good candidate for hormone therapy or not, taking into account their own personal health history and based on the available scientific evidence.

The app offers two modes: one for healthcare providers and one for patients. Among its features for patients, the app asks about the severity of menopausal symptoms, personal treatment preferences and medical history. The clinical-facing side of the app features a risk assessment procedure that helps doctors pick the best treatment for their patient, all while factoring in the patient’s treatment preference.

In addition to the menopause related information, a risk calculator for breast cancer and osteoporosis and educational materials are also available.

Currently, the app is only available for iPhone and iPad users.
