Menopause: A Healthcare Innovation Opportunity
Every female everywhere will experience menopause. Yet even after seeking help from their provider, almost 3 out of 4 are left untreated. It’s a staggering number for a life phase that lasts an average of 7 years, and is experienced by about half the global population, and considering 84% of people say their symptoms interfere with their lives. Further, the costs of ignoring menopausal patients are significant: Studies suggest global productivity losses top $150 billion, with over $2,100 in direct and indirect healthcare spending per patient annually.
Fortunately the healthcare industry is starting to take notice, led by technology-first solutions that can expand access to quality, whole-person care. In a webinar held in honor of Menopause Awareness Month, distinguished panelists will share eye-opening information about the impacts of menopause, how it is cared for today and opportunities for employers, payers, and other health stakeholders to drive progress for a critically underserved population.
In this webinar you will learn:
- How menopause impacts health and wellbeing
- Why it makes sense for population health leaders to better serve menopausal patients
- The impact of menopause on productivity and company competitiveness
- The current state of knowledge and most promising areas of treatment research for menopause and related conditions
