Dallas, TX – Video testimonials as part of advance care plans received high marks in a groundbreaking new study published in the March issue of the Journal of Patient Safety. MyDirectives®, the nation’s only all-digital advance care plan platform that incorporates patient video and audio testimonials, celebrated the study, which affirms what MyDirectives users and physicians have reported informally for years. ADVault, Inc., the creator and operator of MyDirectives and MyDirectives MOBILE™, released the following statement:
“Video is the most powerful medium for sharing stories and information. Today’s study published in the Journal of Patient Safety affirms what MyDirectives users experience firsthand – that capturing one’s healthcare wishes and priorities on video and storing them in a digital advance care plan produces markedly better emergency, critical and, if necessary, end of life care.”
