Introducing SafelyMD

See this card?  It could save your life.

 

It's only the size of a credit card, but it's incredibly powerful.  In your home, in the ambulance or at the emergency room, this card with its QR code could have life-saving information on it.  It tells paramedics and ER personnel about any medical conditions, medications, allergies, resuscitation orders and recent surgeries you chose to share.  All they have to do is scan it with a smart phone or tablet and they see your information in seconds.



Here's an example of what they'd see.



A medical emergency can seem like a nightmare, except it's real.  And your life or the life of a loved one could depend on the information that card provides.

How SafelyMD works

Please take five minutes now to open a free SafelyMD account and fill out the online form.  We guide you as you provide information about medications, surgeries, medical conditions and allergies.  You decide what information to upload.  And if anything changes, you can simply update your information online.  You don't have to reprint the card.  The card always goes to your most recent information.

This little card with its QR code can also provide the names, phone numbers and email addresses of your emergency contacts.  You can upload documents too, like healthcare powers of attorney or resuscitation orders and have those available if you want.  And if the card is lost or stolen, a couple of mouse clicks are all it takes to deactivate the old card and print a new one.

Please, take advantage of this

Open free SafelyMD accounts for yourself, your spouse and your elderly parents.  Open accounts for your children, especially if they are in college, away from home.  Make sure you take the card with you whenever you travel.   The card works as well in Hong Kong as is does at your local hospital.  And with the ability to update contact information and upload other documents (like a passport image) SafelyMD could help you out even if your emergency isn't medical.

Finally, consider upgrading to SafelyFiled, where you can manage all your family's accounts with one name and password - and have storage capacity for 1,000 documents.

We really hope the paramedics and emergency room personnel never have to use your SafelyMD card.  But in the event of an emergency, why not give yourself every possible advantage?  It only takes a few minutes to set up your account.  Aren't you and your family worth it?
