About the Arizona Healthcare Directives Registry

Health Current is the new home for the Arizona Healthcare Directives Registry (AzHDR) after 2019 legislation granted the transition of the registry from the Secretary of State’s office to Health Current to improve healthcare provider access to advance directives. In 2019, Arizona Senate Bill 1352 was passed giving healthcare providers the ability to have real-time access to patients’ wishes – when they need it most.

All advance directives registered with the Arizona Secretary of State have been transferred to the AzHDR with Health Current. Heath Current is now processing all documents. The AzHDR will be available to the general public later this year.

The AzHDR is designed to help honor patients’ end-of-life healthcare wishes by providing seamless access to advance directives, documents that outline a person’s healthcare preferences, across the continuum of care. The new secure online AzHDR provides a safe place to store and make accessible Arizonans’ advance directive documents so end-of-life care will be guided by one’s wishes.

Registering advance directives with the AzHDR is free to Arizona residents, provides peace of mind to registrants and offers easy access to participating healthcare providers – ensuring wishes registered are wishes honored.

Working together as a community, we can ensure that no matter where or when someone faces the moment they cannot communicate, their advance directives are registered, accessible and honored.

Let's Be Direct: Exploring the New AzHDR

Health Current is bringing the community a set of presentations featuring the new Arizona Healthcare Directives Registry designed to showcase the new online system. We will be holding sessions weekly through February 2022.

What is advance care planning?

Advance care planning is a process of thinking and talking about what’s important to you, to help you and those closest to you prepare for your future healthcare decisions.

Advance care planning involves completing advance directives (documents like a living will) and appointing a health care power of attorney (someone to make healthcare decisions for you if you are unable to speak for yourself). Then, most importantly, sharing your decisions and care wishes with your loved ones.

What are advance directives?
Advance directives are documents that outline what healthcare and treatment decisions should be made if you are unable to communicate these wishes. They are intended to let your physician, family and friends know your healthcare preferences, including the types of treatment you do or do not want at the end of your life, your desire for diagnostic testing, surgical procedures, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, organ donation and more.

An advance directive document is drafted according to the Arizona law that outlines your wishes regarding your healthcare and treatment. These documents are only valid when you are no longer capable of making or communicating your own decisions. There are several documents that are listed as advance directives according to A.R.S. §36-32 in the state of Arizona, including:

1. Living Will
2. Health Care Power of Attorney
3. Mental Health Care Power of Attorney
4. Pre-hospital Medical Care Directive – Do Not Resuscitate (DNR)
