Launches personalized virtual care app to address women’s overall health
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (May 1, 2020) —Grand Rapids-based True™ Women’s Health will launch a virtual care app, True Women, and begin seeing patients on May 4 through telehealth. The wellness clinic is focused on total women’s health with personalized one-on-one care and an expertise in midlife, menopause, and sexual health.
True Women, a first-of-its-kind app, will offer virtual visits with founder and OB/GYN Diana Bitner, M.D., who is a North American Menopause Society Certified Menopause Practitioner (NAMS) and has more than 28 years of experience serving thousands of women across West Michigan.
The True Women app enables users to track and manage symptoms and activities and improve a women’s overall wellness. The True Women’s Health team can monitor a user’s progress and the results tracked on the mobile app will be discussed at a patient’s appointment and used for virtual visits.
“We believe a women’s sexual health and overall wellbeing is essential at any age, and our telehealth app gives women access to resources even in times of stress and isolation,” Dr. Bitner said.” “My experience has taught me that women who practice self-wellness—mind, body and spirit—are the most resilient.”
The True Women app is available to all True Women’s Health patients. Those interested in learning more can see a preview in the Apple App store or Google Play store. Users can also connect with each other through a group chat function or through a menopause-informed health coach.
“As the country navigates this health crisis, it was important for us to begin interacting with patients with a convenient digital solution as we wait to open our clinic doors,” said Dr. Bitner. “Our team is dedicated to providing a total wellness experience with a high-touch and personalized approach that addresses each woman’s individual needs.”
The True Women app will supplement the clinic’s concierge-style model with the following features:
- Allows users to track Menopause Transition Scale® and menopause symptoms with an easy daily score
- Offers a simple way to determine menopause stage with its Phase of Ovarian Function tracker
- Tracks The Seven Essential Elements of Daily Success, SEEDS®, to improve daily habits, leading to healthy aging
- Sync updates directly from a patient’s app to a True Women’s Health physician in order to individualize care for each woman
- Users can have an easy and convenient telehealth visit with a provider on their phone
The True Women app is available on all devices and integrates Apple Health on iPhones.
Dr. Bitner and her staff are currently accepting a limited number of patients to ensure they can provide the kind of one-on-one accessibility that results in better patient outcomes. New patients can sign up now at www.truewomenshealth.com/new-patients/. Patients can opt into one of two prepaid annual memberships and develop individualized plans with Dr. Bitner.
Patients can begin scheduling telehealth appointments in May with the clinic opening its doors in the coming months.
