ADVault Executives to Present at PALTC22
On-Demand Session by the Nation’s Leader in Digital Advance Care Planning Will Discuss How New Standards Will Improve Accessibility to ACP Documents.
ADVault’s CEO Scott Brown and Senior Vice President of Innovation & External Affairs Maria Moen have been named to the faculty for the annual conference of The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine March 10-13 in Baltimore. Their presentation on improving accessibility to advance care planning documents and portable medical orders such as POLST and MOLST forms will be available on demand for both in-person and virtual attendees.
ADVault is the nation’s leader in digital advance care planning. During their PALTC session Brown and Moen will discuss how Health Level 7 International, the world’s largest healthcare data standards development organization, is working with the post-acute care interoperability community (PACIO) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to create the FHIR standards for interoperable data exchange, integration, sharing and retrieval of advance directive/advance care plan/portable medical order information.
The session will include a detailed overview of the standards work currently underway that enable a person's advance medical goals, preferences, and priorities for treatment to be accessible across healthcare settings to inform medical care and treatment. Attendees of the session will leave with an increased understanding of the issues this standards project addresses relative to the creation, update, access by family members, verification of authenticity, and versioning of the most current documentation and how that relates to their own operations and partner organizations.
Founded in 2007, ADVault pioneered the use of HL7 Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) standards to deliver ACP information into the electronic medical record and is the architect behind the HL7 CDA standards for personal advance care plans. Brown brings a perspective that comes from 15 years on the front line of developing and implementing the world’s first all-digital ACP experience completely free to consumers (MyDirectives) and a collection of best-in-class digital tools for healthcare providers and payers that make ACP intuitive, simplified, and readily-available to all stakeholders throughout the healthcare ecosystem.
Moen is uniquely qualified to conduct the PALTC presentation having served as a CMS Innovation Grant Leader and lead for the HL7 PACIO Advance Directive Interoperability in FHIR Project. Over the course of her more than 25 years in long-term post-acute care leadership roles, Moen has served on numerous boards and industry workgroups and is the current chair of the HIMSS LTPAC Committee. In late 2021 she was honored as an Interoperability Hero by DirectTrust, a non-profit healthcare industry alliance that recognizes those organizations, teams, and individuals integral to advancing interoperability.
The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine’s Annual Conference is the only educational forum of its kind in the field of post-acute and long-term care medicine. Attendees are exposed to the latest clinical developments in geriatric medicine, best practices in medical direction, policy/regulatory updates, as well as practical tools to help implement new ideas in their practice setting.
