Protect Your Patients’ Wishes and Provide Peace of Mind to Families

As a group medical practice, you serve your community in both the best and worst of times. There are times it becomes necessary to have difficult advance care planning and end of life discussions with your patients. Our mission is to provide you and the families you serve with the tools to turn difficult conversations into empowering discussions about comfort, dignity, spirituality and relationships. In addition to Five Wishes being the only advance directive that specifically details a patient’s wish for hospice care, it is also a medically and legally sound document, protecting the wishes of your patients.

Five Wishes can help you

  • Add value to your patients’ experiences
  • Help your team better understand what drives your patients’ health decisions
  • Explore and document advance care planning conversations over time, during annual wellness visits, or any time there is a change in health

As of January 1, 2016, physicians can bill Medicare for having advance care planning (ACP) conversations with patients and families. This policy change reflects a growing understanding of the importance and effectiveness of advance care planning conversations. Enrich the experience for your patients and their families, and serve as the catalyst for change in your community by educating and promoting advance care planning.

Bring one of the Five Wishes programs below into your practice.

  • The Patient Preferred Advance Directive According to the the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine: “Five Wishes was more readable, understandable, appealing, and usable.
