In our fifth edition of our Temos Bulletin we would like to inform about the new Temos Quality Program “Quality in International Reproductive Care”. This is an answer to the existing gap on a quality seal in this very sensitive branch of medicine. Another focus lies on our new partnership with the Diplomatic Council – DC where we expand the Temos Network for our certified partner facilities.

10 January 2014 - New program "Quality in International Reproductive Care"
Improving quality in international reproductive care
The care of the international patient who travels to another country for infertility treatment brings challenges that are unique to this growing segment of the medical tourism market. How can you ensure that the right clinical and non-clinical support services are in place to ensure continuity of care? How can you re-assure patients that your services meet the highest standards and are in line with international guidelines?
“Quality in International Reproductive Care”, the new Temos certification program fills the existing gap. The “Quality in International Reproductive Care” program is founded on the Temos quality policy and process for the management of international patients. The certification program supports the recommendations and guidelines of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) within “Good clinical treatment in assisted reproduction” and the “Good practice guide for cross-border reproductive care for centers and practitioners”.
Launched and presented for the first time in December 2013 in Bonn, Germany in the frame of the Temos International Conference, the first IVF centers have already applied for this quality program and will start with their preparation within the first half of 2014.
