The HPS Network is offering a wallet-sized medical health alert card that has a QR code physicians or emergency personnel can scan to instantly be directed to information about HPS, treating bleeding and even some of the key standard-of-care medical papers they might find helpful. The information is in both English and Spanish.
A QR code is a symbol that has a barcode in it. The symbol can be scanned with any number of free applications available for all types of smart phones. Once scanned, the user is taken directly to the information about HPS. This way a person with HPS, or a care giver, doesn’t have to worry about always having a doctor packet with them. They can simply give medical staff this easy-to-carry card. While not a replacement for a medical alert bracelet, it can be kept in your wallet next to your medical insurance card so emergency personnel can find it.
