BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 30, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- MedeFile International, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: MDFI), a leader in portable electronic medical records management, announced today the introduction of its Emergency Response Apple iPhone and iPad application, available exclusively at the Apple App Store.
Offered free to all MedeFile members, the application includes an unprecedented emergency response feature that immediately alerts MedeFile who then notifies local EMTs of an emergency involving the MedeFile customer, at the touch-of-a-button. The application operates using Apple's Geo-Positioning feature to instantly notify MedeFile and in turn, local EMTs of the customer's location while simultaneously communicating vital medical information to caregivers in the field.
The custom-designed application allows iPhone and iPad users the ability to instantly access and implement changes to their self-populated information stored on MedeFile's servers directly from their iPhone or iPad.
"The launch of the MedeFile Emergency Response App is very exciting," Kevin Hauser, CEO of MedeFile said. "This invaluable service, in an emergency situation, 1) locates the member using Apple's Geo-Positioning system, 2) calls for dispatch of emergency personnel and 3) may provide the member's critical emergency information to the first responders ideally before they even arrive at the scene. MedeFile collects, digitizes and stores a member's medical records but more than that we are putting life-saving control in our clients' hands. The addition of this App creates even more added value for each MedeFile member."
Apple has sold over 70 million iPhones and 7.5 million iPads since their introduction, and is now the 4th largest mobile phone vendor in the world.
