The Power of A Form

Physician order forms such as POLST or MOLST forms  are used in most states and in most care settings by physicians to document a patient’s End-of-Life wishes. Once a physician order form is signed by both the patient and physicians, it becomes a legal order for treatment.

The Limitations of Paper Forms

In today’s medical system, a paper POLST form is NOT enough. Healthcare providers lack immediate access to the form during a medical emergency.

A high percentage of POLST forms encountered by providers are either incomplete, lacking a signature or filled out erroneously, making them invalid.

A New Model

Care Directives is leveraging technology to bridge the gap in today’s care model. Developed with a single goal in mind; the California POLST Registry enables paramedics, emergency room staff and other healthcare professionals to access and honor individual patient's End-of-Life Wishes.



Care Directives have gone mobile, POLST and other similar forms are now able to  follow patients across care settings. Seamless integration into daily workflow for all care settings. Eliminate paper-documents, user error during completion, lost forms, copies and faxing.
