Prevent Medical Errors
Give yourself and your family the best chance for a successful outcome in a medical emergency. An emergency responder such as a paramedic is most often the first to evaluate or attempt to diagnose the symptoms displayed by a patient needing care. A decision made here could influence Hospital Emergency Room personnel and in turn their treatment of a patient brought into the E.R. The emergency medical summary included with each eMedica Card could make the difference in an emergency.
Healthcare today is not only a visit to the family doctor. With the many alternative medical treatments available being used by a significant sector of the population, doctors are not always privy to every drug, vitamin or remedy that their patients may consume or undertake. An eMedica Card that is kept up to date provides a well-rounded summary of a patient's medical history on which doctors may make more informed diagnoses.
