With My Health Care Wishes™ Mobile App your Advance Care Plans are with you 24/7 transforming the dynamics faced in a medical emergency.
It's a Game Changer!
This App was designed to revolutionize information sharing during a medical crisis so that your advance care documents and information can be instantly conveyed and delivered. Now you can securely store and retrieve these documents in PDF, and export them to a hospital or physician in minutes.
This single App gives you immediate access to PDF versions of the living will, advance medical directive (AMD), health care power of attorney (HCPOA, health care proxy), DNR order and POLST (Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment).
The MyHCWishes App allows you to create a digital library containing your advance care plan and that of your spouse, parent(s), children and anyone you care for deeply. You carry their health care wishes on your smartphone and they carry your wishes and others, on their smartphones.
Advance care information is rarely there when you need it. Imagine having your wishes and those belonging to your loved ones away at college, in a retirement community or nursing home, working in a different city, or under the same roof, stored in one place and a click away, “just in case.” These documents don’t belong tucked away in a safety deposit box or in a file cabinet somewhere. Import and store them on your smartphone so they’re there for medical decision-making anytime anywhere.
Future Affect and Impact:
Most of us haven’t given much thought to health consent and other related matters surrounding medical complications, life support or end of life. But seeing the service provided by this App the added value and purpose is clear—this is certainly something anyone 18+ could use for peace of mind.
In the future, health care providers will look first on your smartphone for the easily recognizable MyHCWishes icon instead of searching for a wallet card!
