SafelyMD and the Single Girl

You just moved to a new city to take your dream job.  You're on your own - and you travel.  Mom and dad worry way too much.  But they have a point.  What if something happens to you?  How would they know?


And to be totally honest, you think about this too, though you don't want them to worry that you worry.  You put an ICE (in case of emergency) number in your cell phone, but now you keep your phone locked.  What good does that do if you are unconscious?

You want to have your health and contact info with you, in your purse.  But you don't want to print a big piece of paper and carry it around with you. 


How SafelyMD works

Take five minutes now to open a free SafelyMD account and fill out the online form.  We'll guide you as you provide the answers to medical questions and input contact information.  You'll put in information about medications, surgeries, medical conditions and allergies.  You can put in as much or as little information as you want.  You can upload documents too, like a healthcare power of attorney, so in the event you can't speak for yourself, the hospital will know it has permission to talk to your mom or dad or anyone else you'd like.  (Click here to download a healthcare power of attorney form for your state.)

When you are finished uploading your information, just follow the directions and print a credit-card-sized card and put it in you purse or wallet.  The card has a QR code on it.  Paramedics or the emergency room staff can scan the card and quickly see the medical and contact information you've input.  There's a private folder in your account too for documents you want to keep, but don't necessarily want them available through the card.

You can update your information at any time without having to reprint the card.  Your current information is always displayed.  And if you lose the card or it's stolen, you can deactivate it with a click of the mouse.  Just print a new card.


Please, take advantage of this

We really hope the paramedics and emergency room personnel never have to use your SafelyMD card.  But the odds are they will someday,  It really only takes a few minutes to set up your account.  It could save your life and take away some of the worry mom and dad (and you) might have.
