PHRToday Issue: #3January 2012

Dear MedFlash Member

 

Welcome to the Winter 2011/2012 edition of PHRToday. I hope that everybody had a safe and healthy holiday season.  

 

In keeping with our promise to you of providing the latest innovative health and wellness tools, I'm pleased to announce our newest addition to your MedFlash benefit program: The 24/7 Nurse Advice Hotline.

 

This exciting telemedicine benefit is part of your annual MedFlash membership, which means any time of the day or night, if you have any health concerns or just want information about a health or wellness issue, pick up the phone and speak to a Registered Nurse toll free.  

 

Also included is an extensive Audio Health Library of over 1000 health topics (over half of them available in Spanish). As a MedFlash Member, the 24/7 Nurse Advice Hotline and Audio Health Library is included at no additional cost to you!

 

Log in to your MedFlash profile, click on the Healthcare Services tab for full details and take it for a spin.   

 

Remember to update your MedFlash on a regular basis and take advantage of our wide offering of health and wellness tools and benefits.

 

Thank you again for your continued support.

USING MEDFLASH IN AN EMERGENCY 
Medical Team

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.

 

3.  We offer WORLDWIDE Internet Access for Emergency Member Information at  www.medflash.com. There is a Large Red Emergency Icon that allows a first responder or family members with your MedFlash Member ID access to your emergency Profile. 

   

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

 MedFlash.com 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.
