Overview of Medical Alert Programs Do It Yourself Medical Alert Programs

Overview

There are several different types of medical alert programs. Some of them offer direct dialing to emergency assistance. Others have an identifying tag which alerts emergency personnel to call them to learn the person's health history.

Medic Alert. Services include secure in-house database that contains your Personal Health Record (PHR) and allows us to manage member information with privacy. They offer sponsored memberships for those who want this service but cannot afford it. MedicAlert.

Life Alert. "Help, I've fallen and I can't get up!". In a home intrusion, or a home fall emergency, or in case of a seizure, heart attack, stroke or other serious illness, a senior usually cannot reach the telephone. She or he may lie on the floor for hours or days, disconnected from any help. This injury can become life threatening. A simple press of a button will instantly activate Life Alert, who will contact neighbors, Paramedics, the Fire Department, Police and/or relatives as needed. LifeAlert.

My Personal Health Record. Each one of your healthcare providers (family practitioner, allergist, OB-GYN, etc.) compiles a separate medical record on you. These multiple medical records can lead to an incomplete story about your health. Keeping your own personal health record (PHR) allows you to provide doctors with valuable information that can help improve the quality of care you receive.
