American Medical ID is the corporate provider of medical IDs for Walgreens. Together we aim to increase awareness of the importance of those living with chronic medical conditions or drug/food/insect allergies to wear medical IDs.
Doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals recommend wearing a medical ID bracelet or medical alert necklace for those who have chronic conditions.
In an emergency situation, when you might not be able to speak for yourself, a medical ID bracelet or necklace speaks for you. A medical ID can quickly communicate your name, condition, allergies, and medications. Often people choose to also include an emergency contact and telephone number so that a loved one quickly knows what is happening and where they need to be.
Symptoms of common ailments can easily be misdiagnosed. Prompt diagnosis is critical to effective treatment. A brief description of vital medical facts engraved on your medical ID ensures appropriate and timely medical care. More than 95 percent of emergency responders look for a medical ID; more than 75 percent check for a medical ID immediately upon assessing the patient. Wearing a medical ID can improve your chances of receiving proper care in an emergency.
Accurate diagnosis and proper care in response to medical conditions listed on a medical ID can save time, money, and lead to fewer emergency room visits and lower hospital re-admittance. People who are wearing a medical ID during an emergency incur fewer costs than those who are not.
