Parsippany, NJ – September 15, 2021 – Ferring Pharmaceuticals announced today the expansion of Fertility House Calls—a platform that connects women and couples with fertility specialists for an initial virtual consultation. The service aims to reduce the emotional burden associated with the fertility journey by making it easier for individuals to take that first step. Prospective patients ready to take the next step on their path to parenthood can search, select and request an appointment with established fertility clinics in their area in a few steps. Now available nationwide, those interested can easily search for a nearby location by visiting https://www.fertilityhousecalls.com
Statistics reveal that 1.4 million women may benefit from advanced fertility treatment, yet only 23 percent make it to a fertility clinic, and only 10 percent start a fertility treatment cycle.* For individuals who are hesitant to make the first visit to a fertility clinic, there is now a simple, convenient way to access personalized fertility care from the comfort of their own home with Fertility House Calls.
“Ferring’s commitment to reproductive medicine and maternal health goes far beyond treatment development. Through programs like Fertility House Calls, we continue to support individuals on their unique fertility journey,” says David Powley, Vice President of Reproductive Medicine and Maternal Health at Ferring Pharmaceuticals. “We are proud to now offer Fertility House Calls at a national level to make the initial conversation with a fertility specialist as comfortable as possible.”
The website allows users to type in their zip code and search for trusted clinics in their area. After requesting an initial virtual consultation, the first appointment with a fertility specialist can be hosted directly from an individual’s home to assess their fertility journey to-date, as well as provide detailed information on potential next steps. With a growing list of clinic partners, Fertility House Calls is increasing accessibility to fertility care for potential patients across the United States.
“Fertility is personal and can be overwhelming – Fertility House Calls is a great place to start,” says April Batcheller, MD, CCRM Minneapolis, Co-Founder, alongside William Schoolcraft, MD. “At CCRM, we believe in the program’s mission to connect patients directly with the expertise they need to help make informed decisions about their future as well as advocate for their own path to parenthood. After launching the pilot program at our flagship clinic in Denver, we look forward to offering the service at all of our clinics across the country to give patients the personalized fertility care they deserve.”
