Living Voice is a tool to help you express your personal preferences … for communicating, for making decisions, and for medical care.
The goal is to use this tool to start conversations about how you wish to be treated and what matters to you. After all, healthcare choices should be personal and individual, just like other choices you make in life.
This tool was developed by scholars at Pennsylvania State University, one of the leading research institutions on advanced care planning and medical ethics.
Today, Living Voice is a service of Vital Decisions, a privately held company that works with health plans to provide neutral and objective decision-making support to patients at every stage of health.
The Living Voice service is always free to you, our users, and the contents of your patient preferences will only be shared when you share them yourself — with your doctor and loved ones, on your terms.
