Every second four patients are admitted to an emergency department — many times unconscious, confused, or unable to communicate. In an emergency, VeriMed is always ready to ‘speak’ on their behalf by quickly providing healthcare professionals with a patient’s name and pertinent medical information via a radio frequency identification (RFID) microchip inserted under their skin, a handheld reader and a secure database.
RFID applications like VeriMed are increasingly incorporated into healthcare delivery. VeriMed is a valuable lifeline between you and your patients that can positively change their lives and your practice. Anyone 12 years or older can utilize VeriMed. Patient candidates who are most suitable include those with:
