Student Report – AB 2452: Advance health care directory registry. Assembly Member Richard Pan


This bill would require the Secretary of State to replace the paper system of advance health care directives with an electronic one. The idea originated out of McGeorge’s elder law clinic. A paper registry in which directives are faxed within one business day is not effective during a medical crisis. In addition, the bill could generate substantial savings if people opt out of expensive, life-sustaining medical procedures. But the system will be expensive to set up and the state has had problems implementing major technological changes. This bill did not advance.
