Gennev Widens Telemedicine Range to Cover Primary Care for All Women
In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Gennev expands its leading telemedicine platform for menopause to include Primary Care Practitioners to give women medical guidance from the safety of home.
SEATTLE MARCH 30, 2020
With many women living under orders to shelter at home, which makes getting the healthcare they need challenging, Gennev (https://gennev.com) today announced the expansion of its virtual telemedicine clinic to include Primary Care Practitioners (PCPs). In addition, Gennev has expanded its OB/GYN telemedicine services to women of all ages. Click here for a complete overview of Gennev’s telemedicine services.
“Clinics are postponing non-critical appointments, but that doesn’t mean women’s health challenges just stop or shouldn’t be treated,” said Jill Angelo, co-founder and CEO of Gennev. “Coughs, fevers, shortness of breath, and having enough prescription medication on hand are on the minds of many women. Having ready access to a PCP or OB/GYN for medical guidance from the safety of your home without requiring travel to a healthcare facility is what our team can offer.”
Right now and for at least the immediate future, going to a doctor’s office might not be the healthiest thing to do. By moving common women’s health appointments into the cloud via a virtual telemedicine clinic, Gennev aims to help women find answers to common questions about hot flashes, bone health, sexual function and more from the comfort of home. And because doctors and patients are not required to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in an online environment, clinics can reserve PPEs for more critical patients and for the front lines of treating COVID-19 patients.
“We’re all a little more on edge right now and monitoring our health more closely. This weekend I became concerned about my body temperature and wasn’t sure if I was having a hot flash or if it was a fever,” said a Gennev telemedicine patient based in Montgomery TX. “It was so comforting to be able to quickly book a telemedicine appointment with a Gennev doctor, which helped alleviate my concern.”
In addition to telemedicine by appointment, Gennev recently expanded its HealthFix concierge membership to offer women unlimited access to doctors and health coaches for medical care, prescription support and behavioral guidance for nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress management.
Angelo continued, “Gennev started as — and will always be — an online clinic for women in menopause. But right now, we’re doing everything we can to get all women the medical advice, prescriptions, and behavioral health guidance they need right now during this COVID-19 crisis.”
