Hospice Analytics and Advance Directives Facilitate End-of-Life Dialogue

End-of-life care conversations and advance directives. At Medalogix, we're working hard to address and solve end-of-life care challenges with analytics technology.

One such challenge is end-of-life discussions—essential for patients, their families and friends. While this dialogue is sensitive, and can be uncomfortable, tools to help facilitate these conversations are greatly beneficial.

Having the best information can often lead to the most hollistic experience. Our hospice analytics technology helps ensure the right conversations are happening with the right person at the right time—and often sooner than widely practiced. We equip home health and hospice providers with some of the tools needed to identify patterns that speak to the timely nature of the best patient care.

Another tool that is helpful at any age or current health status is an advance health care directive. These legally-binding documents are practical, freely available, and a good way to facilitate these conversations and begin end-of-life planning. CaringInfo.org provides free .pdfs of guidelines and forms for each state.
