Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Surveillance


In 1992, Congress enacted the Fertility Clinic Success Rate and Certification Act (FCSRCA). The act requires CDC to collect data from clinics and submit an annual report to Congress on Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) success rates. In 1996, CDC initiated the ART Surveillance System to collect cycle specific and clinic specific data from all medical clinics practicing ART in the United States and its territories. The data collected include patient's diagnosis, type of ART, clinical information pertaining to the ART procedure, and information on pregnancy outcomes.
