      Problem ECD Solves

      In emergencies, your medical records are not immediately available. ECD solves that problem by displaying your personal, electronic medical records (EMR) within 5 seconds, 24/7, worldwide even if you are unconscious and the Internet is not available. The best medical outcomes, to include survival occur when your medical records are immediately available. What happens during the first 60 minutes after a medical event determines one's long-term quality of life.

      How ECD Works in Emergencies

      None of us know when we will be suddenly struck with a serious illness (seizure, stroke, heart attack) or fall victim to a serious injury. However, we do know that there are about 141 million ER visits per year and that 1-in-5 will visit the ER this year. Just these two statistics emphasize the need for each of us to always be prepared for our own ER visit.

      Using the ID Card or Keychain Tag allows your medical records to be displayed within 5 seconds. Keychain Tags can be easily attached to children’s belt loops, backpacks, zipper pulls, etc.

           

       

      Links on the ECD ID Card and Keychain Tag direct first responders and medical personnel to the Emergency Contact Data website for immediate access to medical records.

      First responders and medical personnel can also scan the ECD QR code on the ID Card and Keychain Tag to access your medical records on the Emergency Contact Data website.

      When first responders or medical personnel touch the Emergency Contact Data Icon your comprehensive medical records will be displayed on your phone or tablet within 5 seconds.

      First responders are trained to look to your phone for emergency information. They will see the Emergency Contact Data App decal on the back of your phone. The App’s Icon looks just like the decal on the back of your phone.
