The Blog to Transform Advanced Care
Advancing Care through Innovation, Observation and Collaboration.
C-TAC is proud to recognize Vital Decisions as a member of our organization. Vital Decisions provides advance care planning telehealth and digital solutions to ensure that the care individuals receive aligns with their values and preferences.
Vital Decisions’ mission to be the force, the catalyst in this country, to fundamentally change how individuals are cared for during an advanced illness is one that aligns with C-TAC’s vision of ensuring all Americans with advanced illness receive comprehensive, high-quality, person- and family-centered care that is consistent with their goals and values and honors their dignity.
Vital Decisions was founded over ten years ago out of the recognition that the care individuals with advanced illness receive is often misaligned with their values and wishes. This misalignment often results in physical and emotional discomfort for the individual, confusion and emotional turmoil for the family, and unwanted, high cost care.
Enabled by proprietary behavioral science methodologies, advanced analytics, and highly trained experts and Masters-level clinical specialists, Vital Decisions’ solutions help individuals and their families overcome barriers and think through, communicate and document their preferences to ensure their care is aligned with their wishes. Along the way, Vital Decisions also refers individuals to palliative care, hospice and other appropriate services.
Vital Decisions portfolio of products ensures all individuals across the care continuum have a plan that closely aligns to their wishes. From the My Living Voice digital online platform that provides a legal and valid advance directive, to a guided advance care planning experience through Guided Living Voice, to a high touch multi-session intervention called Living Well, Vital Decisions has different solutions that ensure that individuals receive a quality of life that aligns best to what matters most to them.
Vital Decisions is always interested in connecting with other thought leaders who have a similar passion to serve individuals and families as they face advanced illness and the end of life. C-TAC’s network allows for more opportunity to connect with others who share their vision for providing compassionate services to those facing difficult medical decisions.
