PHRToday Issue: #6November 2012

Dear MedFlash Member,


Welcome to the Fall 2012 edition of PHRToday™.  


In keeping with our promise to you of providing the latest innovative health and wellness tools, I'm pleased to announce the newest addition to your MedFlash benefit program: Medical Alert US


There are many Personal Emergency Response Systems on the market, but MedicalAlertUS offers the very FIRST, the smallest, and one of the most powerful, to capture voice-to-voice communication.


Medical Alert US takes great pride in the fact that yelling or screaming for help is NOT required. The ultra-powerful range of the system provides protection from ANYWHERE - from shower to shed.


Unlike the other systems on the market you do not have to be near the base station for someone to hear you. You just live your life.


This Personal Medical Emergency System works with your home telephone line. Your pendant becomes a MINI wearable extension of your home phone. Simply push the button and you have 2 way voice communications through the pendant to a professionally staffed and trained emergency call center.


In the event of an emergency, enjoy the freedom to of being able to communicate anywhere in and around your home for less than a dollar a day!


Log in to your MedFlash profile and click on the Member Services tab for full details on this World-class system or visit their website at

Protecting yourself in advance of
a natural disaster 

During emergencies or crisis situations, the absence of proper medical equipment or infrastructure is to be expected. In such scenarios, remote access to vital medical information about patients can play a very significant role in treatment, as well as largely influence the outcome of the treatment itself.


Medical histories and health information including prior treatment records, allergy information, drug prescription history, blood work information, and physical data can prove absolutely critical in the determination of appropriate and effective treatments, and can ultimately save a life.


Medflash can provide the required information from any mobile device, telephone or computer within minutes, contributing immensely to the proper and efficient delivery of care in emergency or crisis situations such as the recent hurricane Sandy, which left hundreds dead and possibly thousands injured in its wake.

Durng a storm of this magnitude, important documents and records may be lost forever. MedFlash is your secure online repository for not just medical records, but all other personal documents as well.

We implore you to keep your MedFlash up to date, especially your medication list and emergency contacts. Take an inventory of the contents of your home and upload it to the MedFlash portal for safekeeping. Don't forget your will and other legal documents.

Be proactive. It may very well save your life.
