NAPLES, Florida, Oct. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — HealthLynked Corp. (OTCQB: HLYK), a global healthcare network focused on care management of its members and a provider of healthcare technologies that connects doctors, patients, and medical data, today announced the launch of Oohvie, a new iOS application focused on women’s healthcare. Women comprise half the population and have specific needs when it comes to tracking their menstrual cycles for event planning, pregnancy, and overall signs of well-being. Menstrual trackers are among the most downloaded medical apps with over 100 million downloads worldwide for similar applications.
Oohvie offers unique features over competitive menstrual tracking apps, including the ability to connect with a user’s healthcare providers and share menstrual cycle data. This important information allows gynecologists to better evaluate patients for the causes of hormonal irregularities, infertility, pelvic pain, endometriosis, and many other medical conditions and provides data that could help identify gynecological problems such as fibroids, polyps, cervical or uterine cancer. Oohvie users also have access to a health forum designed specifically for women, covering topics such as contraception, menopause, hormones, pregnancy, sexual health, and pelvic infections.
Oohvie, unlike other menstrual tracking applications, offers two ways to communicate about their health, through a standard classic forum or using our exclusive real-time chat where women can discuss with other Oohvie users their experiences with birth control pills, menstrual symptoms, and other issues in private. In addition, users can purchase name brand feminine hygiene products that are shipped directly to their home at significantly discounted prices. Users can also use the app to schedule reminders for taking birth control pills or hormones.
Oohvie focuses on tracking medical and patient information that is especially useful to a user’s healthcare provider in delivering an accurate medical diagnosis. In addition to providing a way for women to keep track of their menstrual cycle, symptoms, weight, mood, and other pertinent data, the application is able to predict when ovulation and future menses will occur.
Oohvie is available to iOS users for a free 30-day trial on the Apple Store or at https://apps.apple.com/us/app/oohvie/id1526460565. The Android version is scheduled for release in November. Users pay $9.99 per month or $49.99 per year (a 58% discount) to unlock all of Oohvie’s features, including substantial discounts on purchases of feminine products that can cover the cost of the annual membership. Oohvie members will be automatically connected to their free HealthLynked Network account and can easily export their cycle data to their HealthLynked profile to share with their healthcare providers. Current Lynked Members will also receive a 10% discount on their Oohvie Subscription.
Dr. Michael Dent, CEO of HealthLynked, stated “I am excited to launch Oohvie. As an OB/GYN physician for over 25 years, I am committed to improving healthcare for women. Women are often the primary caregivers and they make sure other family members keep on track with routine healthcare screening. Introducing women to HealthLynked through Oohvie and the unique services it offers is very rewarding personally to my goal of transforming healthcare. We are offering a more comprehensive solution for women that integrates with their healthcare providers, provides important healthcare reminders, and saves them significant money on the feminine products they need.”
