Immortum Breathes Life Into End of Life Care
Date:6/28/2012

CHICAGO, June 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

The website Immortum.com is set to re-launch today in order to coincide with the opening of the Compassion & Choices Conference in Chicago. The website tool is dedicated to helping the terminally ill "preserve and make use of their life's knowledge for the benefit of people they choose" while preserving their privacy. http://www.immortum.com/chronicles/

It will enable a significant number of people facing end of life issues to be connected under one address. Founder David Levey revamped the site to give patients and their families a network of caring and understanding.

"The first Immortum lacked proper privacy, anonymity and some key components," said Levey, entrepreneur. "The health industry has told me what they want, and I've listened. If Immortum could connect users to experts in the field, then the site could develop into a great asset for patients and their families. Now it's designed to be a forum for the experts as well."

Levey said the "core mission" of Immortum is still intact and will stay free to users. His inspiration for creating the site came through the experiences of a little girl who lost her mother. "It was a life changing experience to see her devastated," said Levey, the father of a young child himself. "That girl would not have her mum when she graduated from high school, experienced her first kiss or had her first child. That was how Immortum was born."

The site is now more user-friendly and integrated for gathering chosen friends through modern methods of connectivity. Patients can leave messages to their loved ones to be posted immediately or in the future. Privacy and posting is set by the patient. The new site has a patient message board capability where friends and loved ones can post encouragement and photos. http://www.immortum.com/messages/

Levey said that having experts at hand for the patients could benefit the users and health professionals. "By connecting the experts to those in need, we've developed a powerful tool," said Levey. "I have a whole army of experts and patients behind me that made the new Immortum possible. Patients can now ask questions of hospice experts, clergy, nurses, doctors and industry leaders. Those experts can talk to one another, sound off on what's working, and even complain about what's not."
