Voicing Your Medical Wishes Via the Cloud
At MyDirectives, the cloud is the key to efficient and responsible advance care medical planning. With thanks to Rackspace, our customers around the world are able to safely create, store and update their digital advance directives at MyDirectives.com. No matter what the cause – traffic accident, chronic diagnosis or sudden illness – you can feel confident your voice can be heard 24/7, anywhere.
Our CEO, Jeff Zucker, had the opportunity to share, via a guest blog post on Rackspace’s blog, why real time access to medical wishes is critical.
As Jeff writes in his piece, “Medical professionals can hear your voice and read your words if you’re brought into the hospital, even if you can’t speak. It helps make sure a doctor won’t treat a stranger or ‘a medical event,’ but rather treat you! To us, that’s a breath of fresh air whose time has come… and we owe that opportunity to the cloud.”
John Engates, chief technology officer of Rackspace adds, “We always get excited about working with customers that are helping to set the pace of innovation in a particular market. MyDirectives is redefining the way people and the healthcare industry think about advance care planning. We are committed to supporting their efforts by providing MyDirectives.com with a managed cloud solution that helps the company deliver a reliable and secure service to its customers.
Take a peek at the blog post, and keep in mind Jeff’s message: “The way we see it, advance care planning is better talked about around the comfort of the kitchen table than on the operating table.”
There is no better time of the year than the holiday season to gather with family and loved ones to talk about our medical priorities. Because something can happen to any of us at any time, it’s best to be prepared. Starting the conversation about advance directives and advance care wishes is a perfect gift to give your family.
