NAPLES, Fla., May 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Company is strategically positioned to participate in the rapidly growing FemTech industry to further advance women’s healthcare. HealthLynked Corp. (OTCQB: HLYK), (“HealthLynked” or the “Company”) a global healthcare network focused on care management of its members and a provider of healthcare technologies that connect doctors, patients, and medical data, today announced today an enhanced version of its Female Technology (“FemTech”) application (“App”) Oohvie, which is now available to our users. Oohvie focuses on women’s health and wellbeing, allowing users to track their menstrual cycle, moods, symptoms, weight, activities, and many other factors specific to women’s health. Oohvie’s unique features include the ability to connect users with their healthcare providers, which substantially improves the patient evaluation process. The newly released version of the App allows users to chat with a live nurse to answer their medical questions, order feminine products at low cost, which are sent directly to their homes.
Dr. Michael Dent, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer stated, “The demand for FemTech Apps is estimated to grow significantly, with the market size projected to grow to $60 billion by 2027. With Oohvie, HealthLynked is strategically positioned to take advantage of the projected rapid growth in the FemTech industry, and we expect this App will be a major contributor to the growth of our revenue over the next five years as well as our digital healthcare network.”
Dent continued, “We have to modified and improved the Oohvie App adding new features that competitors don’t offer such as chat with a live nurse feature. We plan to intensify our marketing efforts over the next quarter as well as integrate Oohvie into our established core HealthLynked App, allowing users to share information with their doctors to enhance women’s health and wellness.”
Fiona Molloy, Practice Manager of HealthLynked’s Naples Women’s Center practice added, “Oohvie has been a valuable tool to better manage our patients and their health. Patients can now share detailed information about their menstrual cycle and symptoms and Oohvie can help them achieve pregnancy based on the App’s ovulation prediction algorithm.”
