How Does it Work?
The TellAMedic™ Emergency Medical Card is based on the free service offered by Digimia LLC on the
Track My Medical Records
website, where you can track your medical
history in your own words on mobile devices and desktop computers.
In an emergency, your important contacts and medical information can be retrieved in one of two ways.
An EMT or hospital personnel can do a quick and easy scan of your unique QR-Code on the TellAMedic™ Emergency Medical Card,
or simply enter your unique patient ID into the TellAMedic™ website,
and retrieve the vital information in seconds.
What Information is Provided to EMTs?
The TellAMedic™ Emergency Medical Card can quickly and easily provide emergency contact information
as well as a summary of your allergies, medications, conditions, devices (such as a pacemaker)
and immunization records on the spot to EMTs or medical personnel.
All the information shown is data that you or your care-taker entered on the system,
including any special notes about your emergency contact information.
Why is This Different?
There are a number of different services that separately provide emergency medical information
through various means. Hardly any have the concept of providing that information through
an automated system to reduce the time of retrieval to an absolute minimum, without phone calls,
reading ID numbers and providing other information before being allowed to have the
patient's critical emergency information.
No other system, however, has the combination of both a method for tracking your health on a daily
basis coupled with an emergency card to retrieve that information in an emergency.
What Happens if My Card is Lost?
Losing the TellAMedic™ Emergency Medical Card is really not much different than losing
other items in your wallet. And just like a credit card, you can disable the card immediately
on the web site so no one can scan for the details.
What about Privacy?
We're extremely concerned about your privacy. We don't provide your email address, or any medical details
to any other organization.

Is Anyone Notified?
When anyone scans your TellAMedic™ Emergency Medical Card, or enters your Patient ID
into the TellAMedic™ Emergency website that is shown on the card, the owner of that
account is sent an email notifying them that the emergency information was displayed.
