Overcoming Barriers to ACP and Person-Centered Care: Aligning Healthcare Technology with ACP and Person-Centered Care: 21st Century Innovations
HCV envisions a world where all Virginians have access to quality advance care planning that is honored in the delivery of care. In the journey to achieve this vision, there are many barriers to overcome—at personal, interpersonal, institutional, and systemic levels. What are some of these barriers, and how are ACP advocates around the country working to overcome them?
Galvanized by the 2020 pandemic, technological innovations are illuminating new pathways to increase engagement with ACP and improve person-centered care. How can the digital world help to reduce barriers to ACP and provide more person-centered care? How can we ensure that solutions don’t create new barriers to these goals? In November, join us as Maria D. Moen, SVP Innovation and External Affairs from AD Vault, Inc/MyDirectives; Dr. Stephanie Anderson, Executive Director of Respecting Choices; and Dr. Arul Thangavel, CEO of WiserCare present on some of the newest advances in technology to support ACP. Themes will include opportunities in advance directive interoperability and public advance directive registries, provider- versus patient-facing EHRs, and the intersection of personalized support and digital technology in ensuring quality advance care plans.
