  • Was there something in particular that inspired you to found FootprintID?
  • Who can benefit the most from having their medical records at their fingertips?
  • How does one benefit from having always access to their medical information and that of their family or loved ones?

Summary: Make sure you always have access to Health Care Proxies, Living Wills, Power of Attorneys. They are often not with you when crisis strikes and some of the most important documents. They can assure that a person’s wishes are carried out, that a doctor has permission to speak with the parents of a college student, and that the proper individuals are called upon to make decisions.

Multitasking is a way of life for today’s parents. They are responsible for managing their careers and households as well as their family’s hectic schedules – not to mention their health and well being.  When it comes to healthcare, parents often struggle to keep track of their children’s medications, allergies and immunizations. They worry about a college-bound daughter managing her chronic health condition, or a son having a health emergency while they’re away on business. And they make countless calls to the pediatrician’s office to request copies of their children’s vaccination records.

Growing older tends to come with growing health concerns. You may be visiting multiple doctors and pharmacies. Coping with a chronic condition. Or assuming the role of caregiver for a parent or spouse. If you’re like many seniors, keeping track of medications, test results, procedures, and contact information can be overwhelming.

Organizing paper records is challenging and you rarely carry them with you. In an emergency, instant access to your health records can literally be a lifesaver.
