Alliance Partners. Making an Impact! Helping adults locally and creating systematic change.
The Honoring Choices MA (HCM) Alliance Partners help distribute the HCM tools & programs to thousands of their members and care providers who help adults & families locally, and work together on projects for regional & statewide change. Here are some of our joint projects!
We wondered- What does your Patient Portal do? What would you like it to do?
Working together with the MA Coalition for the Prevention of Medical Errors, an Honoring Choices Alliance Partner, we launched the Portal Challenge, a 1-minute online survey to explore two major questions. We asked: If you could, would you 1.) upload your Health Care Proxy & other planning documents into your portal to view, update and share?; and 2). expect your documents to automatically be part of your Electronic Medical Record (EMR)?
Of 100 survey respondents, the results were overwhelming in favor of uploading planning documents:
100 respondents would upload their Health Care Proxy;
94 respondents would upload both their Health Care Proxy and Personal Directive;
69 respondents would upload their MOLST
Similarly, 100 respondents favored an automatic transfer of their planning documents into the EMR. Read more and see the great comments for how to make our Patient Portals more of a 2-way partnership!
New England Age-Dementia Friendly Initiative
Honoring Choices convened MA, RI, VT, NH Age-Dementia Friendly Directors to share resources, and align our programs to help adults at our borders and those who travel through New England receive quality care that honors their planning documents and care choices. We are collaborating with Alliance Partners:
Palliative Care: Aligning the Team Around the Patient
Working together with hundreds of palliative care providers, we collaborated on common terms and a set of tools for both patients and care providers to engage in early and on-going palliative care discussions. Download free tools & discussion guides, learn about the NEW Palliative Care Directory, and listen to a recorded webinar. Many thanks to Alliance Partners:
