IVF BenchMark uses a once only registration process to provide absolute anonymity. All data is stored by an anonymous ID that is not liked to any other information.
There is a good reason why clinics may be wary of using IVF Benchmark. Data can never be considered secure on the Internet regardless of a web sites security measures. The only way information can be managed is if the identity of the clinic is nonexistent.
To do this, IVFBenchMark has developed a once only, single step to gain access to its KPI management tools. Here is how it works.
A clinic must register with FertAid at fertaid.com - FertAid reviews all registrations including those for its EQA management tools or IVFDaily distrubutions. This has thousands of registrations so listing is in itself no indication that a clinic is using the IVFBenchMarking toolkit. After registration, a link will appear that can provide a once-only live anonymous registration to IVFBenchMark.
When you register for www.IVFBenchmark.com, this is an independent process that contains absolutely no identifying information. You can nominate a logon and password that you can use to access your data. The price on paying for absolute anonymity is that if the logon is lost, there is no way it can be reterived. If you cannot remember it, IVFBenchmark certainly cannot either.
Since the data is only for your own use to manage the variability of your data, you can remove it at any time.
IVFBenchmark will provide you with an opportunity to indicate the country where you are located to allow you to compare your performance with other local clinics but individual data is never displayed in a way that may allow further interrogations.
