How Iris’ Documentation Gives Patients a Bigger Voice Above State Specific Directives

Our ACP process is a comprehensive, high-quality service that includes medical decisions beyond state-specific AD forms. Our expert facilitators work with state forms whenever possible as they provide a starting point for ACP discussions, but Iris also uses a proprietary Goals and Planning Summary (GPS) document that tries to capture in readable language what was discussed during the family conference, as a legally permitted addendum to the state-sanctioned form.
