When medical conditions need preference-sensitive care, patients and providers decide together.


Avaz Decisions is an independent organization supporting shared decision making (SDM) between patients and providers, and offering a collection of resources, including patient decision aids certified by the Washington State Health Care Authority.


Our mission

The mission of Avaz Decisions is to remove barriers to effective healthcare by providing accessible resources for patients who are facing difficult medical decisions.


“With preference-sensitive medical conditions, each patient has unique interests and needs. Our decision aids make it easier for patients and providers to discuss the options and reach an answer together.”

— Jennifer Hadlock, MD, founder of Avaz Decisions
