The Future of Women's Healthcare & Survivorship with HerMD
This week we participated in two community events with our OBGYN partners, the pioneering HerMD clinics. In addition to gynecological healthcare, they offer comprehensive care for patients with menopause and reproductive and sexual health needs. Did you know that 97% of medical students learn nothing about caring for menopausal women and that only 20% of OBGYNs are trained in menopause care? This lack of literacy in our caregivers causes unnecessary problems for women and their families.
HerMD Founder, Dr. Javaid, lays out the problem like this, "There's a gender disparity in healthcare due to lack of funding, lack of research, lack of data, lack of female decision-makers, gender bias, and time available to physicians during a standard visit. How are we to address these sensitive issues and 15 minutes? In 15 minutes, patients don't have time to tell you their stories. They don't have time to tell you what's going on. And how in the world, as a physician, are you supposed to listen, empathize, talk about the latest treatment options, document the target, and send the orders? You can't."
HerMD is in a new class of healthcare providers, like Dr. Hardwick Smith in Texas, who treats women holistically. They join media and product organizations to offer complete bio-psycho-social solutions to specific constellations of concerns that women face.
