Our mobile apps have been updated and are now available on Google and Apple stores.
The U.S. Living Will Registry® has
expanded its services and is now
also known as the
U.S. Advance Care Plan Registry® (USACPR℠)
Just as the living will has evolved into new documents offering more sophisticated advance care choices, so has the U.S. Living Will Registry evolved into the U.S. Advance Care Plan Registry®. In addition to our current services, the Registry now also stores DNR, POLST, MOLST forms, and all types of advance care documents, and makes them available to medical providers instantly via Internet as well as with two mobile apps…one for emergency personnel and one for registrants. The U.S. Advance Care Plan Registry® is the natural outgrowth of the U.S. Living Will Registry, the world’s oldest continuously operating advance directive registry. Since 1996 the Registry has been securely storing advance directives and making them accessible to healthcare providers when needed. The Registry is the solution for individuals as well as state run registries, health information exchanges, health networks and hospital systems, and is able to span different electronic medical record systems to provide a central cloud-based storage location for these important documents. All U.S. Living Will Registry registrants are automatically folded into the U.S. Advance Care Plan Registry®–a new name reflecting the expansion of the services we provide to protect your choices and your peace of mind.

Protect your right to control your health care.
Health care is vitally important to everyone. Wherever you are, whatever the situation, you want to be sure you receive appropriate treatment. But even more importantly, you want your decisions to be honored.
The United States Supreme Court guarantees you the right to make those choices, even when you are too sick to make your wishes known. This right gives you control and protects your dignity. But how can you be sure that your choices will be honored if you’re incapacitated?
Every American, regardless of age, faces this question. If you plan now, you can make sure you get the kind of care you want, and relieve your family of burdensome decisions.
Make your choices known in an advance directive
An advance directive is a legal document in which you state how you want to be treated if you become very ill and there is no reasonable hope for your recovery. Although laws vary from state to state, there are basically two kinds of advance directives.
You can have both – a health care proxy naming a person to make the decisions, and a living will to help guide that person in making the decisions.
Your advance directive must be available
In order for your advance directive to be useful, it has to be available. After all, your advance directive won’t do you any good if no one can find it.
Fortunately, there’s an easy, secure way to make sure that your advance directive is available to your family and doctors wherever and whenever it’s needed: the U.S. Living Will Registry.
Developed in consultation with attorneys who represent hospitals, the U.S. Living Will Registry is a nationwide service that stores your advance directive electronically…
