Accreditation and Regulation

Our IVF practice is in complete compliance with all mandatory and voluntary regulatory agencies. Not all IVF programs in the United States go to this length to assure quality. We feel our patients deserve this rigorous approach to quality care.

  1. American Association for the Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF).
    Our IVF facility is accredited to insure the utmost in patient safety and comfort for IVF egg retrievals. We are the 1st and only IVF facility in Indiana to be accredited by this patient safety organization. We have board-certified anesthesiologists provide anesthesia care during procedures.
     
  2. College of American Pathologists (CAP).
    Our IVF lab is completely accredited by CAP. The quality assurance and quality control measures we take assure the patients that the IVF laboratory operates with the highest standards available.
     
  3. Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology/American Society for
    Reproductive Medicine (SART/ASRM).

    Our practice follows the guidelines and is complaint with these organizations requirements that set the standards for the practice of advanced reproductive medical care in the US.
     
  4. United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
    We are in compliance of the FDAs guidelines with respect to human cells, tissues, and tissue based products (HCT/P). These guidelines concern proper infectious disease screening.
     
  5. Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) of 1988.
    Our practice from the endocrine (i.e. hormone testing) laboratory to the andrology and embryology high-complexity laboratories are in compliance with CLIA guidelines with respect to the professionals on staff and quality assurance/ quality control programs we have and proficiency testing we do to assure patients of the highest quality procedure.
     
  6. American Board of Bioanalysis (ABB)
    Certifies Dr. Donahue as High Complexity Laboratory Director (HCLD). Dr. Donahue has additional certification meeting the requirements of CLIA and ABB. He is the only MD in Indiana with this certification and one of about 5% of Lab Directors that are Medical Doctors. Because IVF is lab dependent, it is reassuring to our patients that our physician really knows about the laboratory aspects of IVF and can put the clinical and lab data into a perspective in order to provide the highest level is care.
