Will2Love’s mission is to work with healthcare organizations to help the estimated 32 million patients with major chronic conditions who also face problems with sexual health or fertility.
Our first area of focus is on cancer and we are currently licensing our “reproductive clinic in a box” solution to hospitals and other organizations.
Will2Love’s Reproductive Clinic in a Box
Our system is designed to:
- Streamline the Clinical Encounter: Help clinicians rapidly assess patients via a single question and provide efficient, billable assistance to those dealing with sexual health and fertility issues.
- Provide Evidence-Based Support Services: Clinicians can “prescribe” Will2Love’s online self-help programs which provide patients with education and support that is far more personalized and in-depth than publicly available resources.
- Train Staff: Clinicians are often at a loss about how to assess and manage sexual health and fertility issues. Our PRO portal provides much-needed skills training and clinical guidance. Having trained frontline staff reduces non-billable clinician time spent in counseling and substitutes more effective, billable assessment visits.
- Increase Appropriate Referrals for Downstream Specialty Care: Recent practice guidelines emphasize the need to refer patients for multidisciplinary care of sexual and fertility problems. Our consulting services help organizations create referral networks and enhance their operations and treatment infrastructure to increase utilization of appropriate, billable, specialty care.
Will2Love also offers some services directly to consumers. Patients not being treated at one of our partner organizations can purchase a 6-month subscription to our self-help program as a stand-alone service or schedule a telehealth evaluation by one of our expert psychologists, using secure videoconferencing that also includes a 6-month self-help program subscription.
Individual clinicians can subscribe to our PRO portal to take advantage of our personalized training and clinical practice resources.
