Northwell Holdings and Aegis Ventures inked an agreement today for the formation of Upliv, a women’s virtual care start-up that aims to raise the bar for clinical menopause support. Aegis approached WANT in need of a partner that could swiftly and successfully create a brand for the trailblazing company. Upliv will partner with employers to offer virtual telemedicine services and whole-person care to employees experiencing perimenopause and menopause symptoms. Initially, Upliv will offer services to select nurses through a pilot program at Northwell Health, followed by an expected enterprise-wide rollout in the first quarter of 2023.
Upliv will equip and empower women with clinical tools and guidance to make informed decisions about their health. Upliv’s offerings will include video consults with multidisciplinary menopause experts and coaches, prescription and treatment paths, online resources, and patient-to-patient communities. The aim of the company is to provide care to address the specific needs of women in mid-life, and to empower women to lead healthier, more joyful lives.
“Today there are safe, effective, and science-backed medications and non-pharmacologic treatments to manage the symptoms of menopause. However, many women still struggle to access this care,” said Dr. Stacey E. Rosen, Senior Vice President of the Katz Institute for Women’s Health at Northwell Health. “By leveraging virtual care solutions, we can create access to specialized medical professionals, so women can receive the necessary support to explore treatment options.”
