Boston IVF – The Albany Center today announced that that it has been designated as a Fertility Center of Excellence by The Clinical Sciences Institute (CSI) of Optum network. The Albany fertility practice is the only provider in the Albany, Schenectady, and Syracuse New York region to be chosen as a fertility Center of Excellence.

The Institute identifies fertility programs from around the country that best exemplify clinical excellence based on evidence-based medicine. This honor means that Boston IVF – The Albany Center has far exceeded best-in-class patient care, quality guidelines and clinical outcomes.

The Clinical Review team at Optum analyzes the outcomes and administrative structure of fertility clinics to select providers with the ability to sustain strong delivery, implantation, and low multiple birth rates. Based on their review of centers, they designate practices across the country as far exceeding a strict set of criteria - and award them the Center of Excellence designation.

“Health plans and employers know the value of sending patients with complex cases to high-quality centers such as ours. The Optum Centers of Excellence program will enable patients to receive state-of-the art care from our highly experienced physicians and team for infertility,” said Sonia Elguero, MD, a Reproductive Endocrinologist at Boston IVF – The Albany Center.

Being a Center or Institute of Excellence fertility practice enables greater access by millions of covered patients. Many self-insured employers require their members to utilize a Center of Excellence in order for their insurance coverage to be active. Fertility Center of Excellence programs promote best care clinical practice and cost efficacy.
