MyDirectives is the first completely digital emergency, critical and advance care planning service that is secure, easy to understand, and free to consumers to use.
Apple iPhone users can also download MyDirectives MOBILE for free in the Apple App Store. MyDirectives and MyDirectives MOBILE are services offered by ADVault, Inc., a privately owned U.S. corporation dedicated to ensuring that emergency first responders, doctors, nurses and caregivers always have access to the most important voice in healthcare - yours.
ADVault is a for-profit company with a "not-just-for-profit" philosophy.
So, if MyDirectives and MyDirectives MOBILE are free to consumers, then how does ADVault make money? We charge public and private health plans to store your emergency care plan, and we charge healthcare providers and healthcare information technology vendors who want seamless, secure access to our database. We also sell aggregated, de-identified data to third parties. ADVault does not share information that could be used to identify or contact our users without the express permission of those users.
ADVault was recognized by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for becoming one of the first small businesses to offer a service that was fully compatible with the Blue Button® initiative, which allows consumers to easily, quickly and securely download their healthcare records.
MyDirectives is also the first and only advance care planning platform to receive "meaningful use" certification from HHS under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. MyDirectives' Universal Advance Digital Directive (uADD)™ is the first all-digital emergency, critical and advance care plan used worldwide.
The easy-to-use uADD is better than the legalistic advance directive forms used throughout Asia, Europe and the United States. It offers users the chance to include audio and video messages designed to create a superior emergency, critical and advance care plan. Among its awards and distinctions, MyDirectives has been chosen as one of PC Magazine's "Top 100 Websites." MyDirectives can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.
ADVault helps consumers record their medical treatment wishes, preferences regarding palliative and hospice care, organ donation, and autopsy, and other critical personal information both on the device, and in the format, that is most convenient and comfortable for them. MyDirectives then works with personal health record and electronic medical record vendors, as well as healthcare providers and payers, to make all of that information securely available on demand, whenever and wherever needed.
ADVault is the leader in digital emergency, critical and advance care planning, and MyDirectives is used today by people in all 50 states and in more than 30 foreign countries to create, update and share high-quality emergency, critical and advance care plans, giving them and their loved ones the assurance that their voices can be heard if they suffer a healthcare crisis and cannot communicate with doctors, nurses or other caregivers.
