Clinical needs

In an emergency situation, such as a car accident, an epileptic seizure or a heart attack, the first few minutes are essential and can determine whether a person lives or not. Emergency response must be as fast and as accurate as possible in order to achieve the highest survival rate and improvement of the patient.

Health professionals who arrive at the area of the accident do not have at hand the clinical information of the patient, and they are unaware of important information such as allergies or any special medical condition such as hemophilia, diabetes or epilepsy. Not knowing this vital data can cause the death of the patient or at least can make the situation of an accident even more difficult. Therefore, a method for accessing that crucial information is necessary. This method should not rely on internet access or on whether or not there is mobile coverage.

If the accident or the medical emergency occurs in a foreign country or region, things can get even more complicated. Within a country, there are usually different healthcare information systems that have little communication with each other. The same thing happens internationally, where the language, the culture and the inability to access the user's medical information, which is guarded by the user's healthcare local information system, can be problematic.
Health professionals should be allowed to access the user's medical data from anywhere in the world, with that information being standardized and internacionalized so that they can understand it and manage it.
