Advance care planning is a lifelong process that should happen early and often, but the reality is that it happens too late. Engage your members in these important conversations and enable them to digitally complete documentation, ensuring they receive care in the appropriate care setting that aligns with their personal goals and values.
HOW IT WORKS
Vynca offers a complete end-to-end advance care planning solution for health plans. From the initial member engagement in advance care planning to digital completion of documents – advance directives, POLST and others – we make these documents digitally available to clinicians, members, and their selected caregivers.
Member Engagement Tools
Invite members to register for a Vynca account, and provide educational content so they can make informed decisions around future care preferences.
Members can digitally complete or upload existing documents at home. Or if they would rather engage in shared decision making, documents can be completed with a clinician.
Through ‘My Shared Circle’ members can digitally share their care plans with designated caregivers and clinicians.
Regardless of where the documents are completed, they will be digitally available to clinicians in all care settings. Members and their designated caregivers can also access these documents.
To align with the goals of your program, reports will be provided so you can understand which members have engaged in advance care planning, or where they are in the process.

“In order to provide high-value care concordant with patient wishes, we needed just-in-time electronic access to the most recent, legally valid POLST form. Our goals included this functionality to exist for our patients even outside our own walls and our EHR could not achieve this. Vynca allowed us to achieve all our goals with their EHR-integrated solution that allows POLST access to all participating providers across the state.”
