In March 2021, Massachusetts officially began the important work of transitioning the current paper-based MOLST Program to the much improved POLST electronic form and statewide electronic registry. These changes, which we’re calling the MOLST-to-POLST process, hold the promise to make our program an even more powerful, inclusive, transparent and meaningful tool for caring for the seriously ill.
The Coalition is partnering with the state to support this effort and has formed a MOLST-to-POLST Advisory Group that brings together healthcare and community leaders to synthesize their collective knowledge and share their diverse stakeholder experiences.
We want to hear your ideas on how to make this a successful transition and will be holding virtual sessions for our broader community to come together, learn about the process, and provide input.
Please join us for our first session where we will introduce the POLST form and discuss the changes it introduces.
