Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) March 27, 2007
EMT Alert announced immediate availability of their popular Online Medical Profile plans on their brand new website, enabling consumers to purchase their affordable, easy to use Personal Health Record systems right online. EMT Alert also announced that there are four plans making certain that there is a plan available for every budget. The availability of these plans on a website will foster a new era in online medical records, giving concerned consumers the ability to safeguard themselves with the already proven EMT Alert system. The new website is part of EMT Alert's continuing efforts to bring their important product to more of the market.
"Managing a personal health record is important and is not just for senior citizens any more," said Robert Lomax, Director of Channel Sales at EMT Alert. "These electronic medical records (also known as EMR's) are convenient, affordable, and necessary. Medical mistakes are a leading cause of preventable death in the United States topping both motor vehicle accidents and breast cancer. The figures are staggering and the cost to health care industry is in the billions. We expect to impact those figures by providing people a way to manage their medical records online. With the availability of these plans on our website, we are providing more ways for people to gain access to our product."
How the system works:
Many customers have already benefited from having online personal health records. EMT Alert provides a system where a client can easily upload their medical information like allergies, prescription or over the counter medications (including dosages, frequency, reason for taking, etc.), previous conditions, primary doctor, emergency contact, blood type and more. This information is stored securely behind an encrypted firewall. The customer has access to the information and can update as needed whenever and wherever they see fit. In addition to the profile, EMT Alert provides a special Condition Access Card that is about the size of a credit card. This card contains a snapshot of the medical profile highlights on the back and a Life Number and emergency disclaimer on the front. The Life Number grants emergency responders access to a "read only" version of the personal health record (also known as a PHR), which means they can see it, but can not change it. Since the profile includes all the important information about the card carrier, emergency crews have the information they need to proceed with mistake free treatment. Since the records are electronic, they are not destructible like paper records. This feature makes the EMT Alert system perfect in catastrophic events like hurricanes, floods and fires.
Most consumers are concerned that someone else could gain access to their personal medical records. EMT Alert's system gives control of the PHR to the consumer only. Each client has a unique user name and password to gain access to the record for updates and a unique Life Number for emergency or medical office access. Only the people to whom the person shares their Life Number with can gain access to the record, at no time will anyone else be given the client's Life Number, unless it by their choice. Since the information is stored on a secured server, privacy is not an issue.
