ThoroughCare, Honor My Decisions join forces to provide Advance Care Planning services
New Partnership Gives Patients a Voice in Their Health Care through ThoroughCare
PITTSBURGH, February 08, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ThoroughCare, Inc., an integrated care coordination software platform that enables healthcare providers to effectively deliver value-based care, is announcing a new partnership to expand its services. Honor My Decisions, a Sarasota, FL based healthcare technology company providing enterprise advance care planning software, has joined forces with ThoroughCare to help patients establish an advance care plan and assist healthcare providers in honoring the wishes of patients when it comes to treatment and end-of-life care.
"This new partnership is a key step to furthering our mission of supporting healthcare providers as they support their patients," said Dan Godla, Founder & CEO of ThoroughCare. "By integrating advance care planning into the services we provide, we enable patients to further voice and achieve their life goals, while ensuring providers have efficient access to that information."
Advance Care Planning through ThoroughCare enables patients to complete, share, and update a plan all within a single care coordination platform. This plan includes all the elements necessary for a patient’s wishes to be honored in the event of an emergency, including emergency contacts, healthcare decision-maker, treatment preferences, legal documentation, end-of-life values, and a video living will. Once a plan is established, it can be accessed 24/7 by scanning the QR code on a provided wallet card, clicking a link in patients’ electronic health records, or via an email link shared with individuals identified by the plan owner.
"At Honor My Decisions, we believe every person needs an advance care plan, whether they are currently seriously ill or not, so their health care aligns with their individual preferences and beliefs even when they can’t speak for themselves," said Steve Jackson, CEO of Honor My Decisions. "Our partnership with ThoroughCare supports our mission to help people make and share informed decisions about their health care and ensure those decisions are understood and honored by their loved ones and healthcare teams."
ThoroughCare enables physicians and caregivers to advance patient engagement, enable integrated, coordinated care, and simplify value-based reimbursement programs. It has helped healthcare providers overcome healthcare challenges through intuitive software solutions for streamlined patient care.
