Bouman Law Firm is a registered subscriber to the Arizona Healthcare Directives Registry (“AzHDR”), an online registry for secure storage and sharing of your health care power of attorney and living will declaration. The registry was established by the Arizona Department of Health Services and is currently administered by Contexture, a nonprofit organization that provides strategic, technical, and administrative support. Contexture includes the registry as an integrated component of the Arizona Health Information Exchange. This gives participating Arizona health care facilities instant access to your health care directives when they are needed most.
The registry is free to Arizona residents. Registrants are given access to a password-protected online portal so they can view and update their documents and edit their contact information. Registrants can also print a paper wallet card template with a QR code and a URL link that can be used by any health care providers who may not have direct access to the registry, such as an out-of-state hospital or your primary care physician’s office. We also recommend you share the QR code and URL link with your health care agent.
