Report Outlines Ways to Ensure Access to Advance Care Plans

Honoring ChoicesHonoring Choices Virginia, an initiative to build system change and education around advance care planning, has issued a report on ways to support electronic sharing of advance directives and advance care plans across three health systems in Virginia.  VHCA-VCAL has been a participant in Honoring Choices Virginia.  The three health systems participating in the initiative include Bon Secours Health System, HCA Virginia Health System and Virginia Commonwealth University Health System.

The authors of the report plan to submit the manuscript to an academic journal for publication and pursue grant funding to help continue the work of seamlessly sharing advance care plans and advance directives across systems, setting, and providers.
