New study addresses information sharing in Central Virginia
An interdisciplinary team led by J. Brian Cassel, PhD of VCU Health in collaboration with Honoring Choices, the state health information exchange and the Virginia Department of Health has developed a comprehensive report and associated recommendations for ensuring access to advance care plans wherever a patient seeks emergency medical care. The report recognizes that with the fragmented nature of health care and the many transitions patients with progressive diseases and chronic conditions make across settings and providers, it is crucial that patients’ preferences and values regarding their care are not only elicited and documented, but also actively shared. This study was funded by AcademyHealth through its EDM Forum. Read the report here.
