POLST, Vynca, end of life health care directives

From the Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database:

Tools for improving the quality of life as we grow older — shared by the Tech-enhanced Life community.



Vynca provides secure cloud storage of a person's Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) - their end-of-life wishes - in a way that any care provider can access that information and provide informed care rather than default to heroic measures.

From the website: "Enabling best practices for advance care planning, Vynca is a comprehensive solution for end-of-life directives. We address critical unmet needs in end-of-life care, aligning care preference with care provision. We are a single source of truth for goals of care documentation, and help patients and healthcare providers navigate the complex process of advance care planning."

Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database

This is one of hundreds of products and resources in the Tech-enhanced Life database of "useful products and resources".

The theme of this collection of resources is "tools we can use to help improve our quality of life as we grow older".

We have no vested interest in any of these products or services, but we have collected descriptions of them, and organized them according to various themes relating to the challenges of aging — so older adults and their families can find useful products they do not yet know about. 

Members of Tech-enhanced Life can search by categories, add reviews of the products, and see links to the manufacturer's websites where they can buy the products.


Note: If you want to support our work, please use these links when you buy any of the products we write about, as we sometimes get a small percentage of the sale from the manufacturer, which we use to support our research. (This does not effect the price you pay).
