If you’re severely injured in an accident, suffering from a severe allergic reaction, or impaired due to a medical emergency such as a stroke, heart attack or seizure, you can't possibly speak for yourself. The new 911 Medical ID (http://www.911medicalid.com) was created to relay your important health information to first responders, emergency room doctors, or other medical personnel.
Approximately two millimeters thick, the 911 Medical ID is the world’s thinnest USB medical information storage device, fitting in your wallet as easily as a credit card. This new Portable personal health record (PHR) provides a simple way to store and carry important medical information such as health history, allergies, and prescriptions, in a format that is easy for medical personnel to access. The information carried on the card will reduce misdiagnoses, save valuable time, and even help cut the cost of medical care as the healthcare industry moves more toward electronic records.
911 Medical ID has been in development for three years by MEMI Tech, LLC in Louisville, Kentucky. It can be purchased for $39.99 from http://www.911medicalid.com.
“The 911 Medical ID card would be a perfect gift for anyone, “ said MEMI Tech CEO Mark Weiss. “It is an easy way to create a Portable Personal Health Record (PHR) that gives you the ability to better control your medical information, and can save your life in an emergency.”
When inserted into a computer’s USB port, software on the 911 Medical ID card launches immediately, and walks the user through the steps to enter information such as emergency contacts, doctors, medical conditions, prescriptions, a living will, medical tests, and family history. The card’s two-gigabyte capacity allows you to safely store documents in the secure password-protected area of the card. Additionally, each cardholder has the option of storing the medical records of up to ten family members. Information on the card is also automatically uploaded to a password-protected HIPAA compliant website, providing a web-based option.
An additional feature that makes 911 Medical ID card unique is the “Forever Benefit”. As electronic medical records evolve, MEMI Tech is constantly improving the software for the card. When an upgrade is available, the card is automatically updated. This means a card purchased today will always be up-to-date.
