The Oregon POLST Registry (OPR) is a secure electronic record of a person’s POLST orders. The Registry is designed to allow health care professionals treating a patient access to their POLST orders if the paper POLST form cannot be found.
The mission of the Oregon POLST Registry is to connect emergency health care professionals with their patients’ POLST orders to facilitate compassionate, desired health care during a crisis. We strive to increase accessibility to POLST orders to support continuity of care across health services platforms. The Oregon POLST Registry fosters innovation by creating new ways to securely access health information.
Our goal is to connect health care professionals to POLST forms and connect patients to the level of care they desire. The Registry aims to ensure that the treatment wishes of Oregonians are made available when they are most needed.
