August 2018: Release Notes

Happy September!

Hoping that you are having a great end to the summer! Last month we continued to stay busy with newly published content and updates to the My ACP Decisions platform.

ACP Decisions Receives Certification for 18 Patient Decision Aids from Washington State

Last month we learned that eighteen of our decision aids focused on end-of-life care were  certified by the Washington State Health Care Authority.  ACP Decisions is one of only four organizations in the U.S. to receive certification within the end-of-life care category.  We appreciate that the Washington State Health Care Authority is taking the lead in developing a process to certify patient decision aids for use by clinicians and their patients. 

New Video Content  

We published 3 new videos last month:

  • Spanish Caregiver Academy - Choosing a Skilled Nursing Facility
  • Spanish Caregiver Academy - Talking to Your Loved One About Driving
  • Spanish Caregiver Academy - Thinking About Medical Decisions

New Platform Changes 

My ACP Decisions

  • For project administrators, we've made adding clinicians more intuitive. The process will now ask you for the role of the user, followed by the network they belong to, then other fields determined by their role.
  • For project administrators, the user list now has a Date Added column so you can easily identify when team members were added to the system.
  • For project administrators, you can now sort user lists by name, role, and the date they were added.
  • New columns have been added to the raw data spreadsheet showing the code used to view the video, the order number, and the batch the order was part of.
  • Fixed an issue where you might see empty categories in the sidebar.
  • Resolved an issue where a password resets might fail for users that have had their role changed from clinician to administrator.
  • When downloading raw data reports, events will now be sorted from newest at the top to oldest at the bottom.
  • The error message for patients when entering an incorrect code is now more friendly and informative.
