First Responders Can Bridge The Gap With New Product For Seniors: No More Searching For Meds
Unconscious, confused, or in shock is how first responders often find seniors who call 9-1-1. Many of these emergency callers cannot even tell the EMTs the meds they are taking, their medical history, or allergies. Without this critical information, Paramedics are limited in the treatment they can administer. Yet, first responders do the best they can - considering the little bits of facts in front of them.
Now, the guesswork is over. Available to seniors from MedSign, “Daily Companion” is designed to provide EMTs instant access to emergency caller's health information and prescription meds upon arrival at the location. Daily Companion is a patented, first of its kind home-based telecare and personal emergency response medical alert system that provides global secure access to the callers critical health information and meds.
Firefighter/paramedic Jake Heflin states, “Not knowing what medications the patient is on can be an obstacle to saving a life. First Responders can bridge the gap for the callers in crisis that have a Daily Companion listing all their meds. No more wasting precious minutes searching through cabinets and drawers to find prescription bottles. Everything EMTs need is right there on the Daily Companion.”
Robert Engler, R.B. Fire Chief and Paramedic states, “Having reliable, accurate information is critical early in an EMS response. MedSign’s Daily Companion system of providing these valuable facts will help us to save even more lives.”
Phil Verruto, Chairman and co-founder of MedSign International Corporation, the parent company of Daily Companion comments, “The embedded industry leaders have made no significant changes in the personal emergency response market since the 1990s. The sophisticated Daily Companion is a first of its kind in this emergency market space. We expect to secure a significant share of the senior emergency call industry with our new high end product.”
