Purchase, NY (PRWEB) July 05, 2011
Attain Fertility® Centers has announced the launch the Attain Fertility® Predictor, a free iPhone app designed for women that will help them determine their chances for becoming pregnant on their own. And for women who are unable to get pregnant on their own and need assisted reproductive technology (ART), the predictor then shows her chances of having a baby through in vitro fertilization (IVF). The first of its kind, the Attain Fertility Predictor is filled with vital information, from when to see a specialist, to how many IVF cycles may provide her the best chance of becoming a parent.
Based on a woman’s age and how long she’s been trying to get pregnant without fertility assistance, the Attain Fertility Predictor helps a woman understand her options, including when she may want to consider seeing a fertility specialist.
For women who may need assisted reproductive technology to have a baby, she’s able to see her chances with one, two, or three IVF cycles. The IVF data is from Attain Fertility’s ARTWworks® electronic medical records utilized by some of the largest fertility clinics in the United States.
“Success rates for IVF are carefully documented and validated through ARTworks and this data provides terrific insight into what helps our patients become parents,” explains Kim Hampton, director of Clinical Informatics at Attain Fertility. “There are multiple factors beyond a patient’s age and basic vital statistics that may influence a woman’s chance of taking home a baby, and we encourage women to see a fertility specialist to fully understand her own personal chance for success.”
The Attain Fertility Predictor includes other interactive features and information, including:
- Fertility Center Finder: Helps locate the nearest clinic that’s a part of the Attain Fertility network, request an appointment and get directions.
- BMI calculator: Suggests whether or not a woman is at her optimal weight.
- Fertility loan calculator: Calculates payments for fertility loans that can make paying for treatment more manageable and can be used for programs like Attain® IVF.
- Fertility information: Users can learn about causes of infertility, different treatment options, IVF costs and information about the Attain IVF Programs.
The Attain Fertility Predictor also directs users to other Attain Fertility social media platforms for information and support, including their Facebook page, blog, and website, http://attainfertility.com.
“We know that more and more people are using smart phones to access information. By offering this new, free app for iPhone users we hope to provide that information in a timely and efficient way,” Doug Weiss, senior vice president of Sales & Marketing at Attain Fertility Centers concludes.
The Attain Fertility Predictor is now available at Apple’s iTunes App Store and can be used with iPhones and iPads. A version will be available for Android users within the next few weeks.
