Smart phones.  Smart homes.  Smart cars.

They are everywhere – empowering consumers to lead more engaged, active and better lives.

Yet, for all of the progress in consumer empowerment, too many people still don’t have an emergency advance care plan for their health and, for those that do, too often they’re on paper, out-of-date and not accessible in a health crisis.

Lamar Odom recently went public with his ordeal. Because he hadn’t updated his emergency advance care plan to reflect his recently changed marital status, his ex had to make many difficult decisions on his road to recovery.

For Barbara Bush and, most recently, John McCain, they were capable of making their wishes known so doctors and family members could respect their goals of care.

Everyone can and should have a voice in their care – even if they’re in a health crisis and can’t speak.

Digital advance care plans, especially those with video messages, are the answer.  The free MyDirectives® platform, for example, in conjunction with MyDirectives MOBILE™ available on iPhone, is easy-to-use, update and share and has users now in over 40 countries making it the world’s largest digital advance care planning platform.

Don’t wait for an emergency to create a plan for yourself that can be shared with your loved ones. If you’re new to digital advance care planning, we invite you to watch our short video that explains it in simple terms and get started on creating a plan today!
