The Andrew Seybold Choice Awards seeks to recognize companies for their ongoing efforts to use wireless technology to positively impact the industry and society
Marina Del Rey, CA (PRWEB) March 13, 2008
Andrew Seybold, Inc., a consulting firm known for its in-depth analysis of the wireless industry, announces MyRapidMD Corporation as a finalist for the Andrew Seybold Choice Awards in the category of Best New Company, Newcomer 2007 for the Emergency Service Profile (ESP) cell phone application; a personal medical alert service for cell phones.
MyRapidMD's ESP is a proprietary 3rd party application based on an internationally recognized emergency assessment protocol used by First Responders at Emergency scenes. ESP contains YOUR, and only your critical emergency medical & contact information including your photo; it contains no financial, social security or address information so the ESP information only has value to the user, and the first responder seeking their ESP information. ESP allows first responders to treat users more efficiently, effectively, and accurately in an accident, medical emergency, in transit to the ER and at the ER because they now have immediate access to a user's Emergency Service Profile when information and time count most, that first hour. Quite simply, time and information save lives and the trickle down effects directly benefit healthcare, emergency services and their relevant providers. The goal of ESP is to deliver that information as quickly and effectively as possible when needed.
ESP received a 2007 top product pick award at the national EMS conference by EMS Magazine, considered the leading global authority on the EMS industry. ESP is globally deployable and includes unique and proprietary privacy fields as part of the application as well as a 24/7 backup call center.
"We are thrilled with the nomination and the recognition that our ESP application has received in such a short period of time. More importantly we are honored that the Andrew Seybold Choice Awards finds MyRapidMD and ESP deserving of a nomination for such a prestigious industry award. We are grateful to be recognized by our industry peers and it is a testament to the faith and hard work of all those working with me at MyRapidMD and a compliment to the focus of our work, and belief, that your cell phone should do more than text, talk and entertain, it should care" - said Mr. Mark White President and Founder.
Each year, companies from around the world nominate visionary wireless products and services that promote positive progress on wireless mobility. All nominations submitted must have been commercially deployed between February 15, 2007 and February 15, 2008. The Andrew Seybold Choice Award recognizes these companies and their unique contributions to the innovation of wireless mobility solutions. Winners will be named on April 1, 2008 at the 18th Annual Andrew Seybold Wireless Dinner at CTIA Wireless in Las Vegas.
"The Andrew Seybold Choice Awards seeks to recognize companies for their ongoing efforts to use wireless technology to positively impact the industry and society," said Andrew Seybold, President and CEO of Andrew Seybold, Inc. "We are proud to publicly acknowledge these exemplary companies."
