Research shows that primary care physicians (PCPs) and specialists agree that health care planning, also known as advance care planning (ACP), helps them deliver the best outcomes, reduce patient and family stress and ensure patients receive the care they want.
However, these conversations can be filled with stress, uncertainty and even conflict. Creating state-sanctioned advance directives (ADs) is time-intensive and requires attention to legal and compliance issues that clinics are not optimized to support.
Partnering with Iris can keep your practice team focused on the delivery of excellent care while providing a beneficial service to your patients by allowing them to advocate for their future care and to feel empowered in their care decisions. This approach enables better care coordination, enhances the patient experience and improves outcomes.
As a PCP, you will own the patient relationship throughout the entire process while Iris expert facilitators work as an extension of your care team to execute ACP on your behalf. Iris’ ACP compliments the great work you are currently doing, allowing you to focus on delivering high quality care and enabling you to provide end-of-life care aligned with your patient’s wishes.
