I first heard about CARE from a blogger that I follow and thought ‘This is awesome! I have to see if they do a review/giveaway with me!’
Sure enough, they were happy to do both!
I really wasn’t sure what to expect or how it all worked when I received my bracelet but when I started to read the directions, it was very easy to follow and set up. Which is a good thing because I am kinda slow sometimes 😉
So I install the software and hook up the bracelet to my computer and set it up for each member of my family. At first I thought it was just for one person but as I explored more I found that you can put as many people as you want on the bracelet. You can out all kinda of information on your bracelet!
You can even upload a current picture of the person(s)!
How it works:
With the CARE Medical History Bracelet and the preloaded CARE e-Manager Software, you can take control of your medical history. This powerful and easy to use software allows you to enter your complete personal health history which you can then easily download to the memory device in the band. And because you’ll always have the CARE Medical History Bracelet with you, medical staff can quickly and securely view records on the spot, whether in a doctor’s office or an emergency responder’s laptop.
That means your general physician knows the tests your specialist ordered… Your daughter’s drug allergies are listed in the confusion surrounding an accident… When you are on a business trip and no one with you knows your information, the CARE Medical History has it all recorded.
You can store your entire family’s medical history on one band! This system allows you to quickly and easily organize the complete personal medical histories of every family member through one simple program.
The CARE Medical History Bracelet is ideal for business travelers, athletes, college students, babysitters, caregivers, those with allergies and children going away to camp.
The charts, forms and checklists provide you, a parent or a caregiver the ability to track medical history with an easy-to-use record system. You can maintain and update your medical records on your computer — log immunizations, health tests, medications, diagnostics, insurance references, resources and contacts as well as emergency data like allergies and potential complications.
There are NO MONTHLY FEES and INTERNET ACCESS IS NOT REQUIRED to input your information or for medical professionals to read your medical history.
You can also electronically transfer or print all of this information for new health care providers, insurance companies and family files.
I have put my bracelet on our key chain with all our other keys. I thought this would be better for our family because if we were in an accident and no one could speak or no one could think straight, it would be mush easier to hand over the bracelet to the paramedics then to try and remember all of my families information. Also that way the paramedics wouldn’t have to try and take the bracelet off of your wrist during an accident. There is no need for the paramedics to have a password to look at your information, they just plug it into any USB port and up pops the information! Very simple, easy, and effective!
This is much better then the way that I used to have our medical information on hand. I don’t know if any of you have/had done anything like this before, but I used to have an envelope for each family member (that number is up to 6 right now) and hand write everything about them and their medical history. I would put all 6 envelopes into a large ziplock bag and place it in the glove compartment in our van. But that wouldn’t be so effective because then that would be mean that the paramedics would have to dig through our glove compartment and look for the write paperwork and that just takes up too much time, especially in an emergency! This is way everything is ready to go and no need to worry about papers getting wet, blown away, or the inability to read others hand writing.
