Hello OKCT --

It's been awhile since I've spent time here but I've been working on launching my company and wanted to let you know about it! I started ScanMed QR in March of this year to provide athletes, those with medical conditions or anyone with an easy and seamless way to carry their emergency medical information and have it easily accessible in the event of an medical or other type of emergency. I started the company because of the confusion and missed information when my mother had a mild heart attack in May of 2011. She has Type 1 Diabetes and Epilepsy and was continually having to update her conditions, medications and allergies on a note card because of the limitations of traditional medical alert products. When responders arrived her note card was overlooked (understandably so) and she was given a medication that she is allergic to.

There were other confusions during her treatment and I knew that ScanMed QR could help not only the patient, but hospitals and emergency responders as well. ScanMed QR gives someone the ability to create and manage their own PHR (Personal Health Record) through our site that can be accessed, edited and updated 24x7 without ever having to purchase new or additional products. Best of all -- we go beyond simple "Diabetes" branded products! With our product you have the ability to list other important information like; A1C Number, Insulin Pump or Self-Injection, etc. Each customer has their own unique Quick Response (QR) code that's branded to an ID card, key tag and zipper tag and other portable products! There's a ton of other reasons how ScanMed QR can help -- check out our website ScanMed QR : Medical Alert QR Bracelets & ID Technology - ScanMed QR (

Nice - having worked in the healthcare industry, I can see a real need for better information access, especially during an emergency. I like to see technology start-ups here, helps diversify the economy!

I have a medical condition and due to my work environment and how dangerous it is, as well as how physically demanding it can be (year round heavy lifting outdoors) I've considered getting one of these for just in case. Will check it out, thanks.

This is great! My question is where does the data actually reside? Are you set-up with redundancy? As I write, Netflix is having another outage data due to Amazon AWS servers, on New Year's Eve, it's not as bad but similar to their Christmas Eve and Christmas Day outage. I guess my point is that things go wrong at the worst possible time. If someone goes into an ER and they scan the code and nothing happens, uh oh. Have you considered the redundancy issue?
