MEMI Tech unveils 911 medical ID medallion

MEMI Tech has launched the 911 Medical ID Medallion, a portable health recorc (PHR) device.

This follows the recent launch of another product, the 911 Medical ID USB portable PHR device.

The new 911 Medical ID Medallion is a device designed to be worn around the neck, and includes the same features and functions as the wallet card. The medallion is perfect for use by the elderly, disabled and children. The technology on the card and the medallion empowers the user to take personal responsibility and control of their health information by creating an electronic portable, personal health record.

When plugged into the USB port on any Windows-based computer, the 911 Medical ID Card and Medallion automatically launch software that walks the user through the steps to enter their information.

The devices each have a two gigabyte storage capacity, and allow the owner to safely store private documents in the secure password-protected area of the card. Each also has the capability of storing medical records of ten family members. All of the information is easily backed up onto a password-protected HIPAA compliant, private secure server location that can be accessed from any computer with access to the Internet.

Mark Weiss CEO of MEMI Tech, said : "It is the thinnest, smallest and lightest portable personal health record device ever made, and it offers exactly the same patented and proprietary software and functions as the popular 911 Medical ID Card. The medallion is designed for those who don't carry a wallet but need the protection of having their important medical and personal information with them at all times."
