National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD) exists to inspire, educate and empower the public and providers about the importance of advance care planning. This is an issue close to our hearts at Medalogix because we know that when patients and their famillies are informed about end-of-life care wishes and status, outcomes and satisfaction are improved. That's the very premise of our end-of-life analytics solution, Medalogix Bridge.
- Lead by example. Schedule time with your loved ones to “Have the Talk” and complete your own advance directive. There are many tools, including free forms, you can use to walk you through the process and make your wishes known; access them through the NHDD Public Resources page.
- Encourage your loved ones and friends to learn more about advance directives and to complete their advance directives. You can forward this link: www.nhdd.org
- Share your advance directive with your healthcare providers and make sure it is on file in the event it is needed.
