MHA’s Launches "Heathcare Planning throughout Your Life"

Young Nurse and Patient

The Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association (MHA), an Honoring Choices Alliance Partner, is celebrating Health Care Decisions Month with an innovative statewide campaign that has inspired local businesses to join in the celebration. MHA recently announced “Healthcare Planning throughout Your Life”, a collaborative initiative to encourage MHA employees and all employees of MHA member hospitals to make a health care plan starting with a Health Care Proxy. MHA is kicking off their initiative with the  “Take the First Step” campaign, providing the Honoring Choices “Getting Started Tool Kit” and comprehensive health care planning information for  consumers and care providers on their  Patient Care Link.  MHA also reached out to local businesses in their District Office Park to help bring awareness and planning tools to their customers and  employees. Rebecca’s Cafe has put up a “Healthcare Planning: Take the First Step “ poster, and is offering a free Getting Started Tool Kit for any customers who’d like to take one. Pressed Cafe Burlington is including a free Getting Started Tool Kit with every employee’s next pay check as a benefit to consider starting their own plan.
