MedNotice allows our Subscribers immediate access to any of their documents stored on our system.

While we anticipate that the advance directive will be the most commonly stored document, Subscribers may also wish to store medical records, organ donation documents, limited powers of attorney, and so on.

Once stored on MedNotice, these files can be accessed from anywhere in the world by a person holding the confidential PIN number.

Which documents should you consider for MedNotice?

There are two types of advance medical directives. One type, commonly referred to as a "living will" is an expression of your wishes concerning treatment should you be terminally ill. The other type is a medical durable power of attorney. The difference is important.

With a living will, you trust your physician to carry out the wishes expressed in the document.

With a durable power of attorney for health care, you trust your agent (typically a family member or very close friend) to advocate your wishes for you when you cannot do so for yourself.

Many people have both a living will and a durable power of attorney for health care. This "belt-and-suspenders" approach seems more likely to ensure that your Constitutional right of medical self-determination will be honored.

Where do you get these documents?

The two best sources for living wills and durable powers of attorney for health care are estate planning attorneys and nonprofit organizations.

Estate planning attorneys have considerable experience with the preparation of advance directives, and are most likely to help prepare a document that expresses your wishes.

The following are a number of nonprofit organizations that have prepared generic advance directives.
