Whom you can support with telemedicine app for menopause care? 

If you want to start a virtual menopause care solution – you can target two market segments at once.

1. For individual users

The menopause transition often begins at the age between 45 and 55.

And it's not that much easy for individual women to get easy access to care.

By focusing on individual users, you can easily support women but can also help individual practitioners under the same roof.

Because,

  • It’ll help the women to get easy access to menopause care by virtually connecting with local practitioners or experts.

Northwell Holdings and Aegis Ventures is going to launch a new virtual care app Upliv that will help enterprises to provide menopause care solution with certified experts.

And it is estimated that it will raise around $8.4 million in seed funding.

The real impact you can leave with an app for virtual menopause care

1. Better physical health

Women with menopause commonly observe several physical health issues due to the decline in reproductive hormones.

Fatigue, muscle pain and hot flashes are common examples of it.

This impacts their both personal and professional life.

But with proper treatment, diet, and exercise plans, you can support women to deal with all their physical challenges.

2. Better mental health

The hormonal changes directly impact the mental health of women.

Poor sleep, anxiety, mood swings, and depression are a few examples of it.

But the app allows women to get emotional support in real-time over chat or video conferencing.

3. Social health

There is no doubt that menopause impacts close relationships.

Because men fail to understand the physical and mental pain the women are facing in the menopause phase.

However, with an app, you can also provide 5 to 10 weeks menopause programs that include education on menopause, managing the symptoms at home, diet and nutrition tips and much more.

How you can make money with the virtual menopause care app or platform?

As we said earlier, there are two market segments you can cover.

And for each of them, there are mainly two business models.

  • Pay per visit
  • Monthly and yearly subscription plan

So, let’s do some basic math for it.

You are running a virtual menopause care service with a pricing of $50/month.

Under this subscription plan, you are providing physical and mental health solutions, prescription notes and personalized diet and nutrition plans.

So, let’s assume that a woman requires a minimum of 6 months of support when entering the menopause phase.

Meaning, she will pay you a total of $300 for that 6 months which is your overall revenue from a single user.

And let’s consider that your overall operating and acquisition costs for a single user are around $150 (which is much higher than normal).

That means, your profit will be $150 from a single user.

Now let’s consider that you have 1000 users for those 6 months.

So, your revenue for those 6 months will be $300,000.

But let’s consider that you spend half of the revenue on operating and acquisition costs.

Still, you will make a profit of $150,000!

And remember, your overall revenue depends on how many females are using your platform.

Meaning, the key to generating more revenue is – acquire more and more users!
