About MyDirectives.com & MyDirectives MOBILETM
MyDirectives®, a service of Dallas, Texas-based ADVault, Inc., is the first completely digital emergency, critical and advance care planning platform. Recognized by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for becoming one of the first small businesses to reach full Blue Button® compatibility, which allows individuals to easily, quickly and securely download their electronic healthcare records, MyDirectives is also the first and only advance care planning platform to receive meaningful use certification from HHS. With consumer users in all 50 United States and over 30 countries, MyDirectives’ Universal Advance Digital Directive (uADD)™ is the first all-digital emergency, critical and advance care plan used throughout the world. By allowing people to include audio and video messages and preference statements, and to attach relevant medical orders regarding life-sustaining treatments, the MyDirectives uADD serves as a blueprint to be shared by a person’s care team, with the individual at the center, to help guide care if the person ever suffers a health emergency and cannot effectively communicate with caregivers. MyDirectives MOBILE™, launched in 2015, is found exclusively in the Apple App Store and lets consumers place critical emergency health information in front of the lock-screen on the iPhone in conjunction with Apple Health and its Medical ID program released with the i0S8 platform.
