Patients with serious illness and their families face difficult decisions when diseases progress, or when complications and hospitalizations occur. Patients’ wishes closer to the end of their life are not often known, communicated through the health system continuum or honored. This proposal is aimed at creating an electronic decision making tool that will help patients and families with planning for treatments and procedures related to advanced illnesses. It will also help in identifying surrogate decision makers and will develop an interface with Apex.
