There is no doubt that the human race is expanding in population, and that technology continues to advance in the 21st century at an increased pace every year. What hasn’t changed over time is that medical care still involves people taking care of people, using information transferred from the patient to the first responder or medical professional to assist diagnosis and treatment. What has not kept up with time and technology is the method of making this information transferable. Medically, information transfer is still either verbal or using documented (paper-based) communications.
Very few people carry their documented medical history with them, and not every patient is capable of communicating as they could be unconscious or in an altered mental state. One fact remains true: proper care means the first responder or medical professional needs to know a patient’s current medical history—including prescription medications and allergies—in order to reduce treatment time.
