Advance Care Planning/POLST Effect on Acute Care Utilization in Last 30 Days of Life

Vynca took a look at client data from a health system to understand if there is a correlation between the presence of a POLST form in Vynca and acute care utilization in the last 30 days of life. One full year (1/1/18 to 12/31/18) of death data was examined. Included were patients who died of natural causes (N on death certificate) and were 65 years and older at the time of death, resulting in 3,029 decedents and 1,754 POLST forms.
