The American Bar Association develops My Health Care Wishes App

The ABA has developed an app to make sure your health care wishes are easily accessible in times of need. Rothman Gordon has always advocated that estate planning is not something we do for ourselves – it is something we do for our loved ones. This app is a great way to make sure your wishes are known. They even provide a wallet card so the hospital or physician can access your documents. Don’t have a smart phone? They also provide a card that lets you designate a proxy who can store the information on his or her phone.

The free Lite version can store the health care directive that Rothman Gordon prepared for you in PDF format on your phone – no digging through files and drawers.

Health Care Wishes Lite version (Google Play | Apple App Store)

The $3.99 pro version offers unlimited storage of documents, so you can include your will, living will, DNR orders, etc. plus emergency contacts with click to call features.

Dealing with a medical crisis can be overwhelming. Having an app like this loaded and ready to go at a moment’s notice on your phone may provide peace of mind and also help to ensure your wishes are followed. For more information, visit:

If you have not created a health care directive or have not updated an existing one in the past seven years, consider contacting us at (412) 338-1140 or to schedule an appointment. If we have already created your estate plan and you need a pdf version for the app, please contact Wendy Tarantine at (412) 338-1172 or
