Voice Your Choice
The Voice Your Choice program strives to ensure that a person’s values, wishes and preferences are respected during a health care crisis.
Initially focusing on vulnerable populations, including seniors, the program supports patient-led care and decision making. Through community-wide trainings, education and increased public awareness, the program will expand the number of individuals with accessible advance care plans. This includes people who have identified a healthcare proxy and those who have uploaded their advance directives to a secure platform for easy provider access.
Nexus Montgomery seeks to improve quality of care and ensure that providers can respect their patient’s wishes by launching a new community-wide program, which will increase awareness of advance care planning and remove barriers to completing and accessing advance directives. Nexus has identified a lead community-based implementation partner, Jewish Social Service Agency, which will collaborate with a range of community partners to promote conversations about care choices during a health crisis, provide tools to aid in advance care planning and documentation, increase the completion rate of advanced directives, and expand the use of electronic storage and retrieval services so that a person’s choices can be easily located and known.
