Title: SYSTEM, APPARATUS, AND METHODS FOR DEVELOPING AND DELIVERING HEALTH INFORMATION
Abstract:
An individual is enabled to develop medical contingency plans that are automatically activated if the individual is rendered unable to assert his or her own will by an injury or a medical condition. Medical information and health information are assembled and advance directives are formulated in a manner that combines systematic guidance to optimize contingency plan effectiveness and individual autonomy to permit individuals to design their own plan. When a participating individual is rendered unable to assert his or her own will by an injury or medical emergency, identification information and instructions carried by the individual enable responding care givers to access enforceable documents that direct medical care and address personal needs. The documents produced are designed to overcome mitigating factors associated with the urgency of the individual's condition, institutional policy, conflicting family member opinions, information transmission difficulties, the attitudes of treating physicians, language discrepancies, and the governmental rules in effect where the emergency happens.
