Default ER-IDcard Instant Access to Information on your Patient

Hello Nurses,

My name is Randy and I have been an RN since 1986.
Working in the ER is very rewarding and I love my job and the people I have helped. But what happened to my family should never happen again.

In August of 2007 my Aunt had a massive heart attack and was taken to the hospital and then into surgery to repair her failing heart. Problem was,
due to her condition she was unable to give the paramedics, doctors or nurses any health information about herself. It took 3 hours to contact a family members and let them know she was even in the hospital. This was not a good situation.

Because of this situation I, along with my cousin, have developed the ER-IDcard. I bet you are thinking its stands for Emergency Room Identification. But it realy means Electronic Record Identification. And what it can do for you and your patient is simply amazing.

Imagine having everything you need to know about your patient easily, and securely accessible on the internet. With the ER-IDcard you can have it all. Medical conditions, medications, allergies, blood type, prior surgeries, Physician contact information, Prior lab testing, medical reports, a copy of thier Healthcare directives, Living will and family contact information just to name afew
of the things you have access too.

I invite you to visit our site at er-idcard.com and see what it's about. Tell your friends, family and everyone you work with.

By the way, my aunt has made a full recovery and is doing well. She became our first customer.

Randy W RN

Randy,

I think the idea of accessible online information is great. I think we have some work to arrive there in a useful manner. As a healthcare provider, I would have doubts about the accuracy of the information the patient could edit arbitrarily, which is a feature of your service. Through no ill-meaning, the patient may omit or delete some critical information for a given situation. It sounds like a dilemma, and I don't know the right way to handle it, and wish you well.

The idea sounds great, but there are a lot of things that can go wrong with an online system. The first thing that comes to mind is a hacker who can break into the system and steal personal information. I know you probably think that Im paranoid, but personally, I will not voluntarily put any of my medical information into an online information system.
