TextID can Access Health Records in an Emergency

Text the number on a TextID bracelet to access a patient's medical history

A new medical identification bracelet called TextID allows emergency first responders to access a victim’s medical records by texting the identification number on the bracelet to a designated number that’s also displayed on the bracelet.

The responders are sent two text messages within 10 seconds that include the person’s name, age, contact phone number and specific medical conditions, as well as a URL that can access their extensive medical profile. The bracelets cost between $15 and $50 based on design, and can be found at many grocery and drugstores
