DHIN partners with Vynca for end-of-life documents database
The two organizations will collaborate to create an electronic registry that will provide a single source of advance planning documents. The documents will be available instantly to authorized health care providers in any setting. Work on the project began this month and is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
The registry will make it easier for medical providers to find and access patients’ end-of-life documents, especially during emergencies. Patients’ end-of-life wishes are only accurately documented about 30 percent of the time, the companies said in a statement announcing the deal.
