PHR Today Issue: #2October 2011

Dear MedFlash Member


Welcome our Fall edition of PHRToday. As we prepare for the Holiday season we want to wish everyone continued success and prosperity. MedFlash continues to add new benefits and features with our recent release of our "Blue Button Program."


Blue Button

On August 2, 2010 President Obama announced the "Blue ButtonŽ" capability that allows Veterans to download their personal health information from their My HealtheVet account.


VA developed the Blue Button in collaboration with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and the Department of Defense, along with the Markle Foundation's Consumer Engagement Workgroup. VA's Blue Button became operational at the end of August 2010 and the initiative was made nationally available in October 2010.


We have licensed the Blue Button from the VA, which will allow all Medicare beneficiaries and Veterans to easily import their medical records to their MedFlash.


We have also launched our Facebook page and have been adding new Friends every day. If you are a Facebook member, please stop by and say hello!


In closing, MedFlash was designed to empower all of us as consumers to become more proactive in managing our own health information along with adding health and wellness benefits that can add up to thousands of dollars in saving every year.


As member we ask that you spread the word and think about joining our independent reseller program designed as a revenue share program. You can not only help be part of the solution in these uncertain times regarding our national healthcare crisis, but more importantly help save lives and earn extra income.

Remember to update your MedFlash on a regular basis and look for our latest health and wellness tool and benefits.


Thank you again for your support.

Do you know all of your MedFlash

I.C.E (In Case of Emergency) Benefits?



 MedFlash offers Five Methods of allowing a first responder, healthcare professional or family member access to your health information that is 100% controlled by you. Remember, as you maintain your profile it is stored on a secure, encrypted Web Portal and only the information you choose will be made available to others in case of an emergency.



1.  A Toll Free Number accessible 24/7/365 by a specialized healthcare call center that will verbally, fax or email any of your I.C.E information once they identified you as a member.  Remember that all MedFlash members have an Emergency ID card with their unique 9-digit code. So please... ALWAYS CARRY YOUR ID CARD


2.  Mobile Access that is compatible with all smart phones (Blackberry, iPhone, etc.) so that first responders or family members can easily see your MedFlash Member Emergency Information. Find out more by logging on and visiting your "Member Services" tab. Select MedFlash Mobile.

New Icon 

4.  Quick Repsonse Scan Code - We have added an important feature to your Emergency ID Card that could help save critical minutes in an urgent situation. QR Code

Many of you may have seen these checkerboard-like images in magazine ads and even on billboards. They are called QR Codes, or Quick Response Codes and, when scanned with most Smartphones, will direct the phone to a website URL that is embedded in the image.  


Most first responders have a Smartphone with them at all times and use it to communicate with emergency personnel and hospitals during critical situations.


By using your 9-digit Emergency Code, we created a QR Code unique to your profile that prints out with your Emergency ID Card.  A first responder that finds your card can scan the image with a Smartphone and instantly access your emergency profile.


We encourage you to log in to your MedFlash profile and print out a new copy of your Emergency ID Card that displays your QR Code. Just click on the help icon next to your Emergency ID to print your card.


5.  USB Flash Drive - The optional MedFlash USB drive allows emergency personnel access to your profile without any software or special programs needed.


If you have an Online Only (Portal) membership and would like to add a personalized USB drive, or would like to upgrade your existing flash drive, see our special offers at the end of this newsletter.
