QR health records

Really like this idea: The new Medelinked Health SOS (www.medelinked.com/sos) service gives people peace of mind when travelling, working, competing and commuting. It generates a QR code that is designed to be worn on race numbers, in clothing, stuck on phones, asthma inhalers, wallet cards and passports. In a health emergency, the QR code can be scanned by a smartphone to reveal the patient’s emergency record, with any hidden illnesses, a history of heart troubles, or perhaps an allergy to penicillin. This vital information is shared with the critical care team and the patient receives the right treatment, more quickly.
