NAMS Release New Mobile App for Women in Menopause

A new mobile app developed by the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) helps doctors and patients review treatment options for women in menopause. Named the MenoPro App, it features a risk assessment algorithm that helps doctors to support patients in choosing treatment based on personal preferences like choosing between hormonal and nonhormonal drugs. The app also provides suggestions for lifestyle changes that help manage common menopause symptoms like hot flashes. The app is currently available free of charge for your iPhone or iPad. It is expected to become available for other mobile devices in the near future.
