Our Current Project
The tendency to prioritize their family’s health over their own can keep many women from identifying pelvic health issues or from seeking help when they are symptomatic. By delaying care for protracted lengths of time, symptoms such as disruptive pain, excessive bleeding, and bladder leakage, can become chronic and often lead to surgery.
To address this issue, BYB is developing a digital pelvic health coach to impart credible, medical, and accessible pelvic health content. The digital coach will deliver basic behavioral treatments and connect women to appropriate health care providers.
The coach will triage symptoms, engage users in text conversations, help women connect live with medical practitioners, and find providers for patients in a given community or healthcare system.
BYB’s interactive and digital approach counters the static nature of pelvic health information thereby allowing practitioners, hospital systems, and payers to shepherd better informed healthcare consumers more quickly into care, in addition to supporting women all the way through diagnosis and treatment cycles.
