Health care providers can now electronically submit and access LaPOST forms
PALO ALTO, Calif., and BATON ROUGE, La., July 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Vynca, the nation’s leading advance care planning solution, and the Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum (Quality Forum) announced today the statewide electronic LaPOST Registry is now available for clinicians throughout the state to electronically complete and submit, query, and access the Louisiana Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment (LaPOST) forms.
Vynca and the Quality Forum first announced their partnership to develop a statewide registry in 2018. The registry will help enhance the state’s current advance care planning program, which includes the LaPOST form, a medical order outlining the medical treatment that patients with serious, life-limiting illnesses wish to receive at the end of life.
“The electronic LaPOST Registry will now make forms available to health care providers in all care settings, regardless of where they were completed,” said Cindy Munn, CEO of the Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum. “This will positively impact end-of-life communication and documentation for both residents and health care professionals, and ultimately, result in better patient care.”
