We aimed to increase Jefferson Hospital Ambulatory Practice (JHAP) electronic medical record documentation of advanced care planning discussion of 209 identified “high risk” patients via independently labeled ACP notes by 5% (from 1.4% to 6.4%) over a six-month period (October 1, 2017- April 1, 2018).9 We elected to focus this pilot project on high risk patients due to time constraints of the study period and we felt that these high risk patients would likely derive the most benefit from ACP planning in the outpatient setting.
