EMR Integration & Relevant Hardware:
OBGYNs, PCPs, REIs / endocrinologists, and dermatologists frequently see PCOS patients. While conventional treatments can alleviate symptoms for some people (e.g., hormonal birth control, metformin) MDs do not have the time or expertise required to coach patients through the behavior change necessary to learning how to properly manage a chronic condition. By supplementing OBGYN, PCP, and other physicians' care, Pollie is a complementary solution for many offices and health systems.
The status quo PCOS patient experience is convoluted. Diagnosis takes 2-3 years on average and even once diagnosed, patients have a fragmented experience of being treated for discrete issues by their OBGYN (e.g., irregular periods --> hormonal birth control), endocrinologist (e.g., weight / insulin resistance problems --> metformin), dermatologist (e.g., hair and skin issues --> spiro). This takes time and provides many opportunities for information to slip through the cracks.
By centralizing PCOS care in a behavior change-first way, Pollie is redefining this patient experience. Like the Livongos and Omadas of the world have done in the diabetes and general chronic disease management space, we are empowering patients (in a scalable, cost-effective way) to take control of their own health.
