Who is Iris?

Iris, powered by Aledade, partners with healthcare teams to scale the delivery of Comprehensive Advance Care Planning (CACP). Iris takes ownership of the integration and delivery of Advance Care Planning while keeping your clinical teams informed. Our CACP process results in reduced care utilization, improved healthcare quality and enhanced family and individual experience.

The Problem

When individuals face a serious illness, health care becomes central to their life.

In a crisis, every health care decision can have a major impact.

Our Solution

Most of us plan carefully for many kinds of decisions to make sure we get the quality and experience we want.

At Iris, we believe that healthcare decisions deserve the same level of consideration as buying a home, planning a wedding or any other major life event. And we’re ready to help.

The Problem

Most people reindividual less than half of what their physicians tell them and often they don’t recall the conversations accurately. (Brown University School of Public Health)

That means most people make major health care decisions without fully understanding their choices.

Our Solution

Iris facilitators talk with individuals and family individuals about their health and their options for future care.

Our process helps people understand their choices and make informed decisions about the kind of care they want.

The Problem

66% of all U. S. personal bankruptcies are due to medical issues, including health care costs and lost work time.

530,000 American families file for bankruptcy every year due to overwhelming medical costs. (CNBC)

Our Solution

Healthcare is a key component of quality of life, and individuals want the best quality care they can access.

CACP facilitates providing individuals with the right care, at the right time, in the appropriate setting.

The Problem

Dealing with any serious illness or medical crisis is stressful for individuals and their loved ones.

Facing major medical decisions without a plan places a burden on families and raises the stress level for everyone involved.

Our Solution

Creating an advance care plan with Iris offers peace of mind for individuals, family individuals and healthcare teams by clarifying preferences and documenting them before a health crisis occurs.

Experts in Advance Care Planning

Our deep experience in goals of care planning allow us to provide meaningful and beneficial guidance to individuals through the full lifecycle of the advance care planning process.

This includes in depth discussions, advance directive document creation, wide document distribution and implementation of care plans. This creates a supportive, guided process for individuals while also reducing the time-intensive, complex burden of ACP discussions for clinicians. We provide a high level of care and compassion, treating individuals as if they were our own family by putting them first.

Our Comprehensive Advance Care Planning solutions:

  • Empower individuals with disease specific education and understanding their condition(s)
  • Deliver information on treatment options to reduce anxiety and concerns about future care
  • Enable individuals to take the most appropriate action based on care goals and values

How does it work?

Personalized support and family discussion with an expert
We include family, caregivers and physicians in the advance care planning conversation to enhance shared decision making and to provide individual support during planning and implementation.

Our healthcare experts empower individuals with in-depth information surrounding treatment options in the context of their disease and what navigating future medical situations could look like.

Personalized advance care plans and directives
We support individuals with the information and guidance necessary to make informed decisions about the most appropriate treatments based on their unique care goals and personal values.

This helps us create state-specific Advance Directives with robust personalized supplemental documents that are widely distributed to family, physicians and hospitals to support goal concordant care.

Supported Implementation 
We keep advance care plans and documents up-to-date and provide ongoing support to individuals and family in managing towards care goals as their illness progresses by connecting to Palliative Care, Hospice or other appropriate resources.
