Be Prepared for any Emergency with @Telus
Having worked in Emergency Medical Services for 13 years I came across many situations where either patients didn’t have their medical history handy or family and friends with the patient were unaware of any specific history. Unfortunately in some medical emergencies time is truly of the essence; any delay in obtaining medical history could have a detrimental effect on the outcome of that patient. Often I would counsel patients to gather their medications, medical information and history prior to the arrival of medical help but in the event that the patient was rendered unconscious, it was often impossible to gather this information; this is why it is so important for people to be prepared ahead. Telus has made this process easy for you to create and maintain with an on-line Emergency Profile.
Emergency Profile is a free confidential on-line tool to help people maintain their medical history for themselves and their family and to ensure they are ready in the event of an emergency. Simply go to www.emergencyprofile.com and click on “Get Started”. You will be guided through a series of questions quickly and easily where a summary of your medical history, medications, conditions and other related information will be provided for you to print a wallet size copy, share and pass along to Medic Alert, when applicable.
There’s no need to worry about your information going anywhere except where YOU want it to go; Emergency Profile is exclusive to TELUS health space® and powered by Microsoft® HealthVault®. For parents with children travelling alone, travel, daycare or teachers Emergency Profile will give you peace of mind that you will be prepared for any situation.
