The reality of being able to have your comprehensive medical records at the point of care globally 24/7, is a fundamental benefit in the digital health age and marks a back to basics thinking for the team at Medelinked.
The Medelinked Health SOS service gives peace of mind when travelling, working, competing and commuting. It generates a QR code that is designed to be worn on race numbers, in clothing, stuck on phones, asthma inhalers, wallet cards and passports. In a health emergency the QR code can be scanned by smartphone to reveal the patient’s emergency record, with any hidden illnesses, a history of heart troubles, or perhaps an allergy to penicillin. This vital information is shared with the critical care team and the patient receives the right treatment, more quickly.
Medelinked is harnessing the power of QR codes to save lives. Health SOS gives everyone the peace of mind when they are at work, rest or play. It’s for people with hidden illnesses or allergies, fitness goals, disabilities, stressed commuters, families and those in good health.
Insurance details and next of kin contact details can also be stored. You can decide which information you want to share, giving you total control and privacy.
You can download your QR code from inside your Medelinked account under the 'Emergency Record' tab, be sure to select which records you want to show, designated by the 'Helicopter' logo.
