    His research reveals there is a new nationwide patient safety risk effecting patients who have living wills, Physicians Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment orders and those who are critically ill. His TRIAD VIII study, released by the Journal of Patient Safety, is groundbreaking and reveals we can do better for patients if we incorporate video testimony into their advance care plans. Dr. Mirarchi, is also a practicing Emergency Medicine Physician and Medical Director of the Department of Emergency Medicine at UPMC-Hamot in Erie PA.

    As of January 1, 2016 Medicare has now approved billing codes that allow you to receive Advance Care Planning Education & Counseling. This is what has been commonly called End of Life planning or counseling. The Institute on HealthCare Directives does not consider this End of Life Planning. Instead, the approach is uniquely different in that the institute professionals are advocates for the safety of your employees and their families. Too often though, health care providers, of all types, do not honor and respect a patient or health care agent’s wishes for aggressive treatment or more conservative treatment to allow a natural dying process.  The Institute on Healthcare Directives ensures that your employees’ voices will be heard & will do so by offering a customized MIDEOTM (My Informed Decision on VidEO) Safety Statement that is quickly & easily retrievable by medical personnel any time, day or night.
