LOS ALTOS, Calif., Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Univfy, the pioneer in online fertility predictive analytics, launches Univfy Fertility Calculators, a suite of personalized, digital, interactive content to help women and men get on the quickest and healthiest path to having a baby.
A free, new feature of Your FertilityTM , Univfy Fertility Calculators, provides practical and personalized information to address the needs of women at different points on their fertility path.
To help boost chances of success for women with no fertility problems, the Univfy Ovulation Calculator determines their most fertile days and when they should start using their ovulation predictor kits, and the Univfy Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculator gives fertility and pregnancy health information specific to each user's body fat, as estimated by BMI. Many patients may find they do not need to spend precious time losing weight before trying to conceive.
For women undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF), the Univfy IVF Cycle Calculator helps couples make fertility treatment decisions by giving their probability of needing two or three IVF cycles to have a baby. Univfy also offers Univfy IVF Cost Calculator Lite*, a light version of the popular Univfy IVF Cost Calculator*, that gives quick comparisons of their personalized chances and cost of having a baby with one or three IVF treatments.
"Couples who are trying to conceive in their thirties may not have the luxury of time to let nature's low probabilities take their course," says Univfy Co-founder and CEO Mylene Yao, M.D. "The Univfy Fertility Calculators provide practical essentials in an interactive and personalized format that can help a couple conceive months earlier, or to realize when they need to see a fertility doctor in time to make their dream of having a baby come true."
Women and their partners can access Univfy Fertility Calculators, Your Fertility, and the Univfy IVF Success Program of IVF success prediction tests directly from Univfy's website, http://www.univfy.com. "We have found that patients want to receive personalized information to help them make decisions about their fertility treatment," says Arthur Leader, M.D., of Ottawa Fertility Centre, one of Univfy's earliest research collaborators, who saw the potential in applying data analytics in fertility medicine.
"Univfy Fertility Calculators can help our patients learn more about maximizing their chance of conceiving," says Laura Reuter, M.D., Medical Director of Midwest Fertility Specialists. "Whether it's pinpointing ovulation in a woman's cycle, the impact of her weight on her fertility, or her chance of IVF success, personalized fertility information online, in the place of generic information, can help a patient and her partner make more informed decisions to achieve their goal of having a baby."
Many physicians at leading fertility clinics offer to discuss with clinic patients their Univfy test results*: Boston IVF, MA; Hannam Fertility Centre, Canada; Midwest Fertility Specialists, IN; New York University (NYU) Fertility Center, NY; One Fertility, Canada; Ottawa Fertility Centre, Canada; Reproductive Associates of Delaware, DE; Reproductive Medicine Associates of Michigan (RMA), MI; and the Reproductive Resource Center, KS. In addition, Ottawa Fertility Centre and IVI Clinic Valencia, Spain, offer their clinic patients the Univfy IVFsingle test, providing their personalized risk of having multiple births to best counsel IVF patients on whether to transfer one embryo rather than two or more. For a complete list of clinics that offer Univfy IVF Prediction Tests, see our Provider Directory at https://www.univfy.com/ivfclinics/. Univfy Fertility Calculators and Univfy IVF Prediction Tests can serve as an online reference for health care providers when counseling patients on trying-to-conceive or fertility treatments.
About Univfy: Univfy empowers women and their partners to take charge in building healthy families by providing highly accurate, personalized predictions for fertility treatment success and high-quality digital multimedia and interactive fertility health content.
Based in Los Altos, California, the company was founded in 2009 by former Stanford University Assistant Professor and fertility researcher Mylene Yao, M.D., and Stanford University Professor and biostatistician Wing Wong, Ph.D.
From research at Stanford University and with leading fertility clinics in the U.S. and abroad, Univfy has developed highly accurate, personalized IVF prediction tests based on multiple fertility factors in a patient's health profile, such as ovarian reserve data, body mass index (a measure of height and weight), reproductive health history, and the male partner's health data. Univfy IVF Prediction Test results are shown to be 1,000 times more accurate than IVF success rates based on age alone. More than 50% of patients tested had a higher chance of IVF success than their age alone would suggest.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
