WiserCare helps patients and families express and align on their wishes for advanced illness or end of life care. Our process makes this insight actionable, relevant and accessible for providers so that they can honor these wishes when it matters most.
Proper Advance Care Planning (ACP)—combining informed reflection with actionable and accessible documentation— can ensure that patients receive care that aligns with their wishes, designate a proxy, and reduce conflict among their families and care teams. Unfortunately, only a minority of patients have plans today.
HOW WE HELP
WiserCare focuses patients on the values common to many of end-of-life decisions, and helps translate them to a range of treatment choices that relate to quality of life, symptom relief and other aspects of care.
Authentic patient voice
WiserCare’s reports show how patients reached their decisions, bringing authenticity and clarity to otherwise sterile documents to better and support families, proxies and providers.
WiserCare can populate legal documents like POLSTs or powers of attorney, and help patients choose a proxy.
Our modules are purpose-built for use in routine care, allowing providers to scale ACP - and its benefits - to all adult patients.
THE BENEFITS OF ADVANCE CARE PLANNING
WiserCare’s ACP approach helps bring ACP to broader populations, conferring a host of benefits on patients, families and the system as a whole, such as fewer ED visits, hospitalizations and interventions that run counter to patient wishes, reducing use of the system’s most intensive resources on unwanted care.
