  • webapp based support to both men and women undergoing fertility treatment
  • field-tested on large population and approved by physicians
  • tested approach to address psychosocial and informational needs of fertility patients

Advantages

This is an original, tested approach to the development and evaluation process of an mHealth app providing information and support to both men and women undergoing fertility treatment.

The Infotility app was developed by our research team and was informed by extensive literature reviews and needs assessment surveys of fertility patients and HCPs. The content of Infotility was reviewed and approved by physicians, nurses, psychologists, and experts in the field of fertility to ensure its clinical relevance and accuracy. Infotility was designed by an app design company who worked alongside our team to ensure that the app was user friendly and esthetically pleasing.

In addition to providing over 40 articles on the psychosocial and medical aspects of infertility, the Infotility app included a confidential peer support forum monitored by trained peer supporters.
