Connectyx Launches QR Code Integration for Personal Mobile Medical Records

Connectyx, maker of “MedFlash,” an innovative Personal Health & Wellness Management System (ePHM) for maintaining personal health records (PHR), has announced the integration of QR codes as part of its emergency response programs.

Unlike most PHR offerings, MedFlash now offers rapid mobile access allowing first responders to retrieve members’ important medical information when an “In Case of an Emergency” (I.C.E.) exists.  Adding QR codes with direct links to member’s personal emergency profiles offers even quicker response times.  By using a MedFlash member’s 9-digit Emergency Code, CTYX created a QR Code unique to the member’s personal profile that is embedded on their MedFlash Emergency Identification Card. A first responder that finds the MedFlash member’s card at the scene of the emergency/accident can scan the QR code image with a Smartphone and immediately access the victim’s/member’s personal emergency profile. Most first responders have a Smartphone with them at all times and use it to communicate with emergency personnel and hospitals during critical situations.
