Advance Care Planning and eMOST activations

What went live?

New electronic processes to ensure that patients’ values are “Expressed, Heard, and Respected”, particularly regarding serious illness and end-of-life care, rolled out to acute care sites across Island Health.

The technology supporting this improvement to quality in patient care is: 

  • Cerner Advance Care Planning PowerForm
  • Electronic Medical Orders for Scope of Treatment (eMOST),

Benefits include:

  • Ensuring patients and clients have their wishes Expressed, Heard, and Respected.
  • Standardizing the process for documenting and reviewing our patients’ wishes and values of care. 
  •  Providing easy electronic access to MOST documentation.
  • Establishing a single source of truth for MOST in Island Health.

As of November 2022, all acute care locations at Island Health use eMOST.
