American Medical ID is making it easier for consumers to purchase custom engraved medical alert jewelry with the launch of their new mobile website. The new mobile site displays the entire product catalog and allows a mobile customer to customize, engrave, and purchase their ID jewelry, all from their phone. This allows for quick access to creating a medical ID bracelet or necklace while waiting at a local pharmacy where American Medical ID offers basic variations of their jewelry.
"The team at American Medical ID is dedicated to serving our increasingly-mobile customers and we are pleased to announce this new feature,” said Rick Russell, president of American Medical ID.
Medical IDs can be a potentially life saving device for millions of Americans. Medical conditions, drug and food allergies, prescribed medicines and emergency contacts can be engraved onto the surface of a medical ID to alert medical professionals. In an emergency, when a person might not be able to speak for themselves, a medical ID bracelet or necklace speaks for them.
The Importance of a Medical ID
According to a published study, half of all medical errors occur because of mistakes made upon admission or discharge from the hospital. Wearing medical alert jewelry protects against potentially harmful medical errors. Medical IDs can help eliminate trips to the hospital, reduce unnecessary hospital admissions and prevent minor emergencies from becoming major ones.
