PALO ALTO, Calif. and ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., June 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Today Vynca, the national leader in advance care planning technology, and the New Mexico Health Information Collaborative (NMHIC), who provides a statewide Health Information Exchange (HIE), announced a partnership to make advance care planning documents digitally available to healthcare provider groups across the NMHIC network.
Appropriate, timely sharing of vital patient information is important to providing quality care. This partnership will allow healthcare providers across the NMHIC network to view, upload and digitally create advance care planning documents, helping to ensure optimal end-of-life care for New Mexicans.
Vynca currently houses more than 1 million active advance care plans, partnering with over 120 hospitals, including Presbyterian Health Services in New Mexico. “NMHIC is excited to partner with Vynca. The experience they bring to the clients of our HIE will allow for a higher quality of care at the end of life and the avoidance of unwanted healthcare interventions, with the inclusion of advance care plans in the health information exchange,” stated Thomas D. East, PhD and CEO of NMHIC.
“We’re seeing more and more organizations looking to standardize advance care planning across their state. This collaboration aligns with NMHIC’s statewide vision: perfectly informed healthcare for New Mexico,” stated Ryan Van Wert, MD, CEO and co-founder of Vynca. “By making advance care planning documents available across NMHIC’s network, providers can access and provide the end-of-life care that aligns with patients’ documented wishes.”
