Transforming Advanced Care
Members of the MyDirectives team were honored to be a part of Bill Novelli and Tom Koutsoumpas’ C-TAC (Coalition to Transform Advanced Care) two-day summit in Washington, D.C., last week.
The "who's who" of healthcare and advance care planning leaders shared stories and brainstormed how to thoughtfully and appropriately use the momentum surrounding the implementation of healthcare reform to actually impact the elderly and frail in society.
We heard Senators Mark Warner, Sheldon Whitehouse and Johnny Isakson, as well as former Senator Blanche Lincoln make impressive pleas for the business world (from start-up to Fortune 500) to engage, empower and lead.
We were able to share with attendees what we’ve learned from you – consumers – since we went live last year. Across many of the 50 states and a long list of countries, you are proving and telling us every day that you are ready, willing and able to create your own advance care plans. You’re the secret to truly transforming advance care – engaging all of us makes it easier and more comfortable to engage those in the most urgent need. We are happy that MyDirectives.com is giving you that voice!
