Alife Launches New AI Platform to Optimize IVF

A first-of-its-kind software platform, Alife Assist™ utilizes data-driven insights and AI to optimize and support clinical decision-making during ovarian stimulation, embryo grading, and overall operations

SAN FRANCISCO, October 24, 2022 – Alife Health announced the launch of its Alife Assist™ platform today. This new suite of products aims to help fertility clinics utilize and leverage data-driven insights and artificial intelligence (AI) to optimize and support clinical decision-making during critical stages of the in-vitro fertilization (IVF) process, as well as streamline overall clinic operations. This marks the company’s official entry into the clinical market after conducting two years of research and development with its notable list of clinic partners, advisors, and investors.

“I founded Alife because I knew that AI has the potential to drastically impact the IVF process. Yet, as we began to work with fertility clinics around the country, we quickly identified a parallel opportunity for improvement: the need for a central platform to digitize clinic workflow and support collective decision-making. Our team is thrilled to launch Alife Assist™, a first-of-its-kind product suite that optimizes the IVF process from end-to-end,” says Paxton Maeder-York, CEO of Alife. “Together, our products will help clinics harness the power of AI and advanced analytics to streamline their workflow and bring a more personalized experience to their patients.”

“AI has enormous potential to help inform our decisions as clinicians. When it comes to patient care decision making, the more data and information, the better. If we can harness the knowledge of thousands of past patient cycles from clinics around the world, we can make more informed choices about the patient sitting right in front of us,” says Louis Weckstein, MD.

The Alife Assist™platform is made up of three robust products that are supported by the team’s scientific research and collaboration with top clinics:

  • Stim Assist™ is a set of AI-powered clinical decision support tools that helps reproductive endocrinologists choose the optimal medication dose and timing to maximize the number of mature eggs retrieved from an ovarian stimulation cycle. These tools use one of the largest and most diverse IVF datasets in the world which contains millions of rows of historical data from previous patient cycles to provide insights on what treatment has worked best for similar patients. Alife’s research indicates that in general more mature oocytes are associated with a higher live birth percentage.
  • Embryo Assist™ streamlines and enhances an embryologist’s workflow in a single tool to keep consistent records, save time, and automate reports. This enables embryologists to digitally capture, grade, organize, and report embryo grading data like never before, all with real-time EMR connection. 
  • Insights™ is an analytics dashboard that gives directors, managers, and administrators the ability to monitor and visualize their clinic’s performance in real-time. This simplifies the process of extracting trends and sharing reports to optimize overall clinic operations. 

Alife Assist™ is now available for IVF clinics in the United States. For those interested in exploring Alife Assist™ further, email to learn more or schedule a product demo at
