PALO ALTO, Calif. and GREENSBORO, N.C., Sept. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — A little more than one-in-three Americans have advance directives. If your loved one became incapacitated, where would you find their end-of-life instructions? If they are patients of Cone Health or Triad HealthCare Network (THN), they will soon be easily found in the electronic medical record.
Vynca, Cone Health, and THN announced today a partnership to implement Vynca’s advance care planning technology to enhance end-of-life care for patients throughout the Piedmont Triad. Cone Health and THN will be the first providers in the state of North Carolina to leverage Vynca. The organizations are also working with Mind My Health, a nonprofit project of The Carolinas Center with support from The Duke Endowment on the project.
“Everyone needs advance directives to make sure their end-of-life wishes are carried out. But if loved ones aren’t quickly available or they don’t know where the plans are, these instructions can’t be followed,” says Elizabeth Golding, DO, Cone Health Palliative Care Services. “This system from Vynca and Mind My Health makes sure we can easily find the directives and honor what our loved ones wanted at their life’s end.”
