Welcome to your Menopause app

Women of 50 are the backbone of society, just at a time when the menopause hits. It hits some women very hard and they do not get the help they deserve. Dr Morton’s and Medopad are on a mission to validate their problem through data collection and sharing, and then provide them with a convenient, affordable solution.

This study aims to show that individualised data collection and sharing with gynaecologists produces better outcomes. During this study we will provide Medopad’s remote monitoring solution, offering access to peri- and post-menopausal women living in the UK, to monitor and collect data about their symptoms and allow them to manage and track their treatment benefits objectively.

What will you need to do ?

Please start by setting up your Menopause app, by carefully following the steps in the sections below. Once completed within a few days you will receive a Welcome to your Menopause app email that will guide you through the next steps, including registering and booking your consultation with Dr Morton’s.

Who has access to my data ?

Your care team at Dr Morton’s will be given your name and email address, in order to register you for your 3 months of free consultations. This will be done securely and in accordance to Dr Morton’s privacy policy. At the time of your consultation, the doctor will ask your permission to view and discuss with you all the information you have collected on your Dr Morton’s Menopause app. You can choose, if you wish, to share your data with other professionals, such as your GP, at any time in the app.

When to use the Menopause app ?

The Medopad Patient Monitoring app will be added to your phone, so it’s important you keep it with you during the day. The Dr Morton’s team have chosen the most commonly troublesome symptoms to be monitored (eg. hot flushes) and it’s important you complete the charts as requested.
