Before there was Honor My Decisions, the Alpha-1 Foundation (a healthcare charity for people with alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, a genetic disorder) funded a project at the University of Florida’s medical school to create an interactive tool to help people communicate their end-of-life wishes. John, who headed up the foundation, recognized that there was an opportunity to bring easy, meaningful advance care planning (ACP) to a wider group of people.
In 2015, John and Steve teamed up to commercialize the University of Florida project as Honor My Decisions. What started out as a simple tablet-based application to capture a Florida advance directive has evolved and grown into a cloud-based enterprise ACP software-as-a-service that covers all 50 states.
Whether it’s through family doctors, healthcare systems, health plans, or employers, we have a way for people to pick someone they trust to be their health care champion, make informed decisions about their care, capture their values and health care priorities, legally document and share their wishes, and make sure everyone on their care team knows what medical treatments they want and don’t want.
