eMedica developed the personal health record card and accompanying software as a result of a colleague becoming gravely ill after receiving the wrong medical treatment when she was admitted to Emergency. She had no medical history in California and, as is often the case, Emergency physicians made their best guess at the most appropriate treatment when confronted with such a situation. Medical treatment errors can be minimized, if not prevented when a patient presents with their personal medical history readily available and accessible. By some estimates, medical error (mainly in hospitals) is the third leading cause of death in North America, and especially in the USA. The eMedica team set out to develop a simple, portable and inexpensive solution that would give everyone the ability to collect and carry their own health records with them anywhere, any time.
The eMedica team draws upon years of leadership experience in the fields of medical technology and in growing new businesses. The company’s medical advisors have international experience and are hands-on with their own practices in Canada and the USA. Other members of the team include engineers, registered nurses (RN's) and LPN’s backed by software developers with over 60 years combined experience in healthcare system software.
