MedeFile International Inc. (MDFI.OB) Offers Timely Access to Health Records

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

MedeFile International Inc. (MDFI.OB) has developed a proprietary system for gathering and digitizing medical records so that members can have access to a comprehensive set of their medical records at any time.

The company’s primary product is the MedeFile system, which gathers and stores copies of a member’s medical records from wherever they may be, including hospitals, doctor’s offices, or outpatient facilities. The MedeFile system consolidates these records into an easily accessible digital format. This medical data is available to members and their authorized healthcare providers seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

A member’s MedeFile contains information about the member’s physicians, insurance, medications, medical conditions, and more. It also contains all of the records sent by healthcare providers, which may prove invaluable since many healthcare providers dispose of patient records after 5 to 7 years. A member may also store copies of other important documents. Such documents could include: living wills, durable power of attorneys, organ donor cards, and other vital papers.

MedeFile International, Inc. (MDFI.OB) Publicizes Memberships through API Marketing’s Retail Outlets

Friday, July 18th, 2008

MedeFile International, Inc. (MDFI.OB) is pleased to announce that it recently signed an exclusive agreement with API Marketing and Advertising Company to market MedeFile memberships at more than 100,000 retail outlets located in the Continental U.S., Hawaii, and Canada.

API, based in South Florida, has been in business for over 20 years. President and CEO Alex Papas recognized early on that almost 90 percent of all gas stations and convenience stores are independently owned. Since its inception, Papas and his team of over 500 independent sales representatives have built strong business relationships with gas stations, bodegas, convenience stores, independent pharmacies, and health food stores throughout North America. Clients such as Verizon, PT-1, Old Navy, and Playboy understand API’s unique network of retail outlets is an effective method to reach consumers.

API specializes in creating high-impact, point-of-sale marketing material. MedeFile and API work in conjunction to create a MedeFile-branded ‘rack card’ and ‘stickers’. The API sales team will negotiate with retail outlets for placing the ‘rack card’ at or near check-out counters, while the ‘stickers’ will be placed primarily in storefront windows, main entry doors, and at gas pumps.

The agreement between MedeFile and API hits Papas on a personal note. In the past, Papas had a medical situation which resulted in unnecessary and repeated testing. Papas feels that if he had MedeFile, the situation would have been more manageable.

“Once we understood what the MedeFile solution was, we came to the fast conclusion that there is simply no one who should be without it. Aside from providing peace of mind, convenience and security, this cost effective and tech-savvy electronic medical record management solution is also environmentally friendly, helping to eliminate, to large degree, the need for producing hard copies of health records,” stated Papas. “Consequently, API is very excited about having the opportunity to partner with MedeFile to bring this important new technology to the attention of U.S. consumers everywhere.”

“It is our opinion that the key to long term success for our Company is through education of the mass consumer market on the value and potentially life saving benefits of our patient-centric approach to automating the collection, archiving and management of a person’s medical history. With API’s assistance, we look forward to introducing MedeFile to millions of consumers in the coming year,” stated Milton Hauser, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of MedeFile.

Medefile International, Inc. (MDFI.OB)’s CEO Gives Interview on Smallcap Rapp

Monday, July 14th, 2008

This past Friday, Milton Hauser, CEO of Medefile International, interviewed on the Smallcap Rapp, a live interactive radio show hosted by 247MGI, Inc. The show gives investors the chance to hear about a company directly from its officers, as well as allowing investors to actively participate in the interview process with the ability to ask questions of their own.

Mr. Hauser started out by outlining Medefile’s operation, calling it the premier ‘patient-centric’ solution to a broken medical records system. He proudly pointed out Medefile’s unprecedented ease-of-use, noting that subscribers simply fill out a small bit of information about themselves and their doctors, and Medefile handles the painstaking process of obtaining the individual’s records.

Examples were given as to why Medefile is such an important service to patients, citing the more than one million people who permanently lost their entire medical histories as a result of the damage caused by Hurricane Katrina. While Medefile customers are given tangible copies of their information, a hard-copy is retained by Medefile and digitally stored in the MedeVault.

In a direct quote taken from the interview, Mr. Hauser stated: “Today, you are taking a chance with your life, in my opinion, if you do not have a copy of your medical records. It allows you to go anywhere and everywhere, and be treated in the best possible manner.”

MedeFile International Inc. (MDFI.OB) Consumer Security Is Not an Issue

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

MedeFile International Inc. handles highly confidential medical records and documents for the public and the healthcare industry. The nature of their business requires extreme measures to keep medical records and personal information out of the wrong hands. As a countermeasure to fight security breaches, MedeFile has implemented an online security system to ensure the safety and integrity of client data.

MedeFile’s security architecture ensures that its services are provided with the highest degree of privacy and integrity using well established, proven security methodologies. The architecture provides multiple lines of defense with each line employing a distinct mechanism. MedeFile’s security architecture addresses the following key areas: site security, access control, authentication and network communications security.

Site security is implemented to ensure that physical access to the site is controlled by biometric devices and other measures. The MedeFile site physical security system consists of a comprehensive set of proprietary physical and logical controls and a multi- layered internal network. The site has also implemented strict facility and development protocols that ensure the safety of physical access and site-wide restrictions on resource availability and authentication control for all MedeFile users, staff and support personnel.

Access control is used by MedeFile to restrict access to data, based on levels of authorization. The access control begins with web servers that process Internet HTTP transactions from clients that communicate over the Internet via authenticated and encrypted SSL sessions. Each valid MedeFile user has a user ID on the system which provides privacy to sensitive data by encrypting the data. The Security System database fields that contain especially sensitive information are stored in encrypted form and decrypted only when made available to authorized and authenticated requesters. All data accesses are logged in permanent, archived records and all access requests without proper credentials or application authentication tokens are reported to the real-time security alert system.

Another key security area is authentication, which is used to verify that the user is actually who they claim to be. MedeFile members authenticate to the system using a user name and password. Members may change their password at any time during their membership. MedeFile web servers authenticate themselves to the browsers in a SSL session using Secure Server, Class 3 Digital IDs issued by Verisign Inc.

Finally, network communications security is an important security area for the company. Network communications security uses secure cryptosystems to physically or logically prevent unauthorized disclosure of protected data. This is a technologically complicated method to ensure authenticity, but uses an SSL protocol that was originally developed by the Netscape Communications Corporation. This SSL protocol provides security and privacy over the Internet and supports both client and server authentication. A combination of all of these measures ensures that all user information remains safe and confidential.

MedeFile International Inc. (MDFI.OB) Already Diversified Product Line Keeps Growing

Monday, July 7th, 2008

MedeFile International Inc has been saving money, time and energy for consumers and providers in the healthcare industry for years. MedeFile specializes in the development of technologies and provisions for service that assist their customers in the collection, management, and distribution of key health data, including medical records and images. The company provides 14 unique products and services that simplify all aspects of medical data for patients, healthcare providers and other invested parties.

The founders of MedeFile came from several unique backgrounds, including medicine, business, and technology, which has enabled them to create a product line that is both efficient and practical. One of the most practical and basic services provided by the company is the Digital Health Profile. This service is unique to each patient and contains a full heath record of the individual. The Digital Health Profile includes information about allergies, medical conditions, family history, emergency contact information, prescriptions, healthcare providers and several other pieces of vital health information.

A digital service that is great for the busy and tech-savvy consumer is Healthcare Calendar. This service is an interactive calendar which can save, remember and remind the user of doctor appointments, medication schedules and prescription refills. The service will even send email reminders and medication alerts to a computer or PDA to help maintain a scheduled health regimen. MedeFile also offers a similar interactive service called Medication Log, which allows the user to track all prescription and over-the-counter medicines, as well as the physicians that prescribed them.

In the fast-paced world of today, records are often needed instantly. For this reason, Medefile created Fax on Demand. This is an on-demand service that allows the user to have their records faxed to any healthcare provider or other contact without delay or difficulty. The specific records that are needed can be selected online or over the phone and sent to the desired recipient immediately. In addition to faxing the records to their destination, MedeFile gives the option to have a copy sent to the user at no additional charge.

MedeFile International, Inc. (MDFI.OB) Announces the Launch of “COP Initiative”

Monday, June 30th, 2008

MedeFile International, Inc. announced this morning that it has launched its new Community Outreach Program (“COP Initiative”) to provide local emergency medical first responders with the information crucial to making life-saving treatment decisions on a community-wide scale. The company also hopes that the new initiative will play a key role in offsetting local law enforcement agencies’ critical budgetary shortfalls caused by federal and state funding cuts.

“MedeFile is very proud to launch the COP Initiative – a truly innovative program created to reach an even broader audience of potential MedeFile members, while also providing the means to help local law enforcement purchase the policing technologies they require to enhance public safety in the communities they serve,“ stated the company.

With the coordination of participating departments, local municipal authorities and community leaders, MedeFile will be hosting and supporting educational classes at local public venues (such as public libraries, community centers, area churches, etc.) providing on-site enrollment. Direct mail flyers, postings on community bulletin boards, community newsletters, and select radio programming will be used to generate interest.

The Medefile System, the company’s flagship product, is a secure system that gathers all of its members’ actual medical records to create a single, comprehensive medical record. The medical record, available 24/7 from any desktop, laptop or web-enabled wireless device, can then be used by professionals to use the most effective treatments, while avoiding treatments that may be futile or potentially hazardous to the individual.

MedeFile International, Inc. (MDFI.OB) Makes Strides in Stock Market This Month

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

MedeFile International, Inc. (MDFI.OB) has made tremendous positive movement in the stock market in the past several weeks. After starting out the month at $0.11 per share, MDFI closed at $0.32 per share yesterday. A steady, three-fold increase in one month shows the confidence being built behind MedeFile.

MedeFile is focused on developing its technology and services to assist people in gathering and organizing key healthcare data. The company collects all of a patient’s records and digitalizes the medical records into a comprehensive file that can be accessed through a specially designed portable drive or through a call to its central data center.

As physicians and consumers learn about the benefits of the MedeFile services, interest in the company has blossomed. MedeFile has been able to enter into a variety of agreements this year with practices and companies that understand the void in the medical business that MedeFile is filling.

The Personal Choice Family Practice in Jupiter, Florida, was one of the first facilities to show its confidence in MedeFile. Dr. Lorne Stitsky, known locally as the “House Call Doc”, leads the concierge medical practice and wanted to “practice medicine the old fashioned way – but with a high tech twist.” The twist is providing each of his 400 patients with a standard MedeFile membership in conjunction with at-home and same-day appointments.

Dr. Stitsky previously had a practice that supported over 30,000 patients and on average would see at least 30 per day. “In that fast-paced, time-constrained environment, ensuring the delivery of superior medical care with any level of consistency unfortunately proved challenging, if not altogether impossible. Moreover, the highly inefficient use of time and resources spent tracking down old medical records, insurance information, test results and critical clinical data from other care specialists who were also treating my patients proved both frustrating and costly.”

In May, Hayes Clinical Laboratory agreed to market MedeFile services to its patients. Nearly 500 heathcare practitioners refer their patients to the Hayes facilities for testing. Hayes’ five laboratory locations in South Florida administer testing to over 180,000 patients annually, and often see identical testing being performed on patients. The Hayes management team hopes that the MedeFile services will reduce the testing redundancy often seen in its client base.

Earlier this month, API Marketing, Sales & Advertising Company agreed to market MedeFile memberships to consumers in its 100,000 retail outlets located throughout the Continental U.S., Hawaii, and Canada. API specializes in marketing consumer products to convenience stores, gas stations, bodegas, health food stores, and independent pharmacies.

CEO and President of API, Alex Pappas, stated, “Once we understood what the MedeFile solution was, we came to the fast conclusion that there is simply no one who should be without it. Aside from providing peace of mind, convenience and security, this cost effective and tech-savvy electronic medical record management solution is also environmentally friendly, helping to eliminate, to large degree, the need for producing hard copies of health records.”

Chairman and CEO of MedeFile, Milton Hauser, recently stated, “MedeFile is on a mission to educate the nation’s healthcare community on the fact that centralizing actual medical records with the patient is the key to achieving real, positive change to the U.S. healthcare delivery system. By winning the support of respected medical institutions and providers, such as Hayes Labs, we are succeeding in helping others to realize and appreciate the many important convenience, care-enhancing and cost-saving benefits made possible with the MedeFile solution.”

Milton Hauser, founder, chairman and CEO of MedeFile, stated, “With a goal of winning widespread adoption of the MedeFile solution as the industry standard for managing an individual’s comprehensive health records, over the past several months, we have been executing an exciting product awareness campaign focused on educating entire local communities on the numerous user benefits and advantages of the MedeFile system.”

Medefile International, Inc. (MDFI.OB) is Rising Above on Multiple Levels

Tuesday, June 24th, 2008

In sports, many people use the term “this team is hot,” but it can also be used when talking about companies that are creating a splash in the financial markets. One of these companies is Medefile International, Inc. (OTCBB: MDFI), the developer of a proprietary system for gathering and digitizing medical records so that individuals can have access to their complete set of medical records. In just one month, the company’s stock has risen 290%. The MedeFile System® is the company’s flagship product, which is already generating a new way for patients, healthcare providers and other invested parties to gather medical records at any time they choose.

The company was founded by an entrepreneur, with the assistance of a group of physicians, registered medical records specialists, and technologists. Up until now, the patient has been viewed as a submissive participant in the healthcare delivery process. With more and more people becoming active in their healthcare decisions and taking on more responsibility for their treatment, MedeFile provides a revolutionary opportunity for doctors and other caregivers to improve their relationship with patients.

MedeFile’s number-one priority is to provide a safe and secure environment for members, giving them peace of mind that their information is kept private and ready for their use only. The MedeVault was created to assure members that they will never lose track of either their own, or their family’s, medical history. There are procedures which limit access to designated individuals, and these make attaining medical records that much easier and friendly.

The company recently granted South Florida-based API Marketing, Sales & Advertising Co. the exclusive right to market MedeFile memberships to consumers in more than 100,000 retail outlets throughout the U.S. and Canada. API has specialized in marketing consumer products for over 20 years. Their clients include Verizon, PT-1, Old Navy, and Playboy, just to name a few.

“‘We are very pleased that API appreciates our vision for establishing the MedeFile solution as the de facto standard for how individuals manage their personal medical records,” commented Milton Hauser, founder, chairman, and CEO of MedeFile. “‘It is our opinion that the key to long term success for our Company is through education of the mass consumer market on the value and potentially life-saving benefits of our patient-centric approach to automating the collection, archiving and management of a person’s medical history. With API’s assistance, we look forward to introducing MedeFile to millions of consumers in the coming year.”

Additionally, there will also be 300, 30-second commercials airing on national cable news channels, including CNBC, CNN, MSNBC, Bloomberg, and Fox news over the next four weeks, “This televised ad campaign is designed to help educate consumers nationwide on the many benefits, convenience and peace of mind afforded by the MedeFile system,” stated Mr. Hauser.

“The recent violent storms, tornados and mass flooding that have destroyed homes and businesses throughout the Midwest are a yet another painful reminder that natural disasters can occur quickly, leaving little time to secure vital documents such as medical records. MedeFile’s members know that whatever comes – be it natural disaster, fire, document misplacement or the closing of a medical or dental practice, their health records are safe, secure and accessible to them, emergency first responders and authorized healthcare providers anytime, anywhere,” he concluded.

Based on my own personal, harrowing medical experiences involving unnecessary and costly redundant testing, I believe that MedeFile is indeed capable of having a very positive — if not profound — impact on the U.S. healthcare system. Consequently, API is very excited about having the opportunity to partner with MedeFile to bring this important new technology to the attention of U.S. consumers everywhere.”

MedeFile International, Inc. (MDFI.OB) Launches National Televised Ad Campaign

Thursday, June 19th, 2008

Today, Medefile International, Inc announced that it has launched a nationally televised advertising campaign to generate consumer awareness of its product. A 30-second commercial campaign will air on national cable news channels, including CNBC, CNN, MSNBC, Bloomberg and FOX News, over the next four weeks.

“This televised ad campaign is designed to help educate consumers nationwide on the many benefits, convenience and peace of mind afforded by the MedeFile system,” stated Milton Hauser, founder, chairman and CEO of MedeFile. “The recent violent storms, tornados and mass flooding that have destroyed homes and businesses throughout the Midwest are a yet another painful reminder that natural disasters can occur quickly, leaving little time to secure vital documents such as medical records.

The result of such timely and up-to-date data enhances patients’ medical outcomes without unnecessary costs such as redundancy in testing and treatment protocols, or the hassle and cost typically associated with managing and transfer of unwieldy ‘paper’ records and files.

Members empower themselves by subscribing to the MedeFile’s electronic system to take control of their own health and well-being, and ensure their healthcare providers have the information readily available to make sound and lifesaving decisions. Finally, unlike other medical record management solutions, MedeFile does the work of collecting, archiving and maintaining all records on behalf of its members.

Medefile International, Inc. (MDFI.OB) Announces Alliance with Newark Fraternal Order of Police; Reports Enthusiastic Response

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008

Medefile International, Inc. announced after the bell that it will provide every Newark Fraternal Order of Police (NFOP) member police officer, including those retired, with MedeFile Basic memberships which can be upgraded to MedeFile Premium memberships. Medefile has already enrolled nearly 1,000 police officers throughout the U.S., during its recent participation in National Police Week at Washington, D.C.

The president of NFOP, Derick Hatcher, stated, “Law enforcement is a very dangerous business, requiring police officers to place their lives at risk every single day. In the event of a medical emergency involving an officer – particularly one in which he or she may be unconscious or otherwise unable to communicate, having immediate access to critical medical insight about the officer could prove to be vital. Teaming with MedeFile will ensure that our member officers are never without their personal emergency medical information.”

Milton Hauser, CEO and president of Medefile, commented, “It is MedeFile’s opinion that having immediate access to personal medical records is just as important as carrying a firearm when it comes to providing enhanced security and protection for an officer. Consequently, our sales and marketing teams have been actively engaged in discussions and marketing initiatives targeting our nation’s law enforcement agencies, and our message is beginning to resonate throughout the country.”

Medefile stated that its mission is to revolutionize the healthcare industry and empower patients by providing a ‘one-stop-shop’ secure solution for acquisition, organization and management of all actual medical, dental and general health records and images, regardless of their origin or nature. By offering everyone efficient, secure, and cost-effective tools and services, Medefile works to eliminate unnecessary costs, redundancy in testing and treatment protocols, and the hassle usually accompanied with managing disordered ‘paper’ medical records and files.

MedeFile International Inc. (MDFI.OB) Offers Safer Alternative to Google Health

Friday, June 6th, 2008

Google Health offers people the ability to organize their health records. However, many people are extremely skeptical of claims made by a company with a history of brushing security vulnerabilities under the rug. Do you really want to trust a huge corporation with the privacy of your personal medical data, especially when its integrity in that arena is continually in question? For most of us, the answer is no.

As if a relatively checkered past regarding security breaches was not enough, it has been pointed out that Google does not fall under the category of a “covered entity” according to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996. Congress instituted this act in order to safeguard health care access and portability, and to prevent health care fraud and abuse. Many people are concerned with the way Google has found a legal loophole to skirt around HIPAA-imposed regulations in the collection and retention of personal health information.

MedeFile boasts a medical record maintenance solution to which we can safely say yes. All of the company’s practices are HIPAA-compliant, and were developed by physicians with the patient in mind. Upon receipt of your records, the company certifies that they will be kept under strict lock-and-key, 100-percent secure from unauthorized access.

When it comes to your health, and that of your family, you simply cannot afford to roll the dice. MedeFile not only provides customers with a simple one-stop solution to suit individual needs, it provides them with peace of mind.

Tragic International Story Shows Need for Companies Like MedeFile International Inc. (MDFI.OB)

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

An article recently published by ABC News tells the story of an elderly couple, Don and Marlene Bryce, who took a cruise to the Mediterranean aboard a Holland America vessel. Unfortunately, tragedy struck on what was supposed to be the vacation of a lifetime, celebrating Don’s retirement.

According to the ship’s records, Don became ill a little over a week into the trip. After several calls to the onboard physician, Marlene reported no improvement in her husband’s condition. Four days later, on the floor of their cabin, Don Bryce passed away from a massive heart attack.

While it has been ruled that the staff aboard the ship acted in a manner consistent with professional medical procedure, Marlene Bryce is not certain that proper care was taken in the handling of Don’s situation. Mr. Bryce had a history of heart trouble, and the wait-and-see approach that was adopted by medical personnel, she feels, ultimately cost her husband his life.

MedeFile offers individuals the ability to carry digital copies of a patient’s complete medical history; a technology which, in this particular case, could have saved a man from death and a family from inexplicable grief. In the article concerning Don Bryce’s passing, ABC News advises readers to carry a complete medical record at all times, especially when leaving the country.

MedeFile’s process allows you to feel safe in the knowledge that no matter how far from your home you might travel, attending physicians will be adequately aware of your personal history should you require treatment. It might not only be a good idea, but might just save your life.

MedeFile International Inc. (MDFI.OB) – A Source to Gain Full Picture of Patient’s Health

Friday, May 30th, 2008

Today society is more mobile than ever before. Families no longer live in the same house for decades. Individuals no longer stay employed with the same company for 20 years. People now move when they are offered a better career opportunity. Organizing a move and starting a new job is stressful enough without having to think of all the paperwork that needs to be transferred. Becoming a member of MedeFile would take care of one key element wherever or whenever an individual or family transfers to a new location.

The MedeFile system provides users, hospitals, and physicians access to medical records 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Any authorized hospital or physician can have access to a member’s digital records. When starting with a new physician, patients must normally provide all former medical paperwork from a previous doctor and/or hospital, as well as arrange an initial consultation and verbally go through their medical history. If someone has no physical conditions, this can be done quite easily. For those who have had health issues, this can be a daunting task.

Dr. Steven Orshan provided the following example: “I saw a young woman this afternoon referred from a cardiologist for chest pain. In the middle of the examination she stated that she forgot to tell me that her echocardiogram in the cardiologist’s office showed elevation of the pressure in the arteries of her lung (an important point). Needless to say she did not have the report. I called the cardiologists office to fax me the information. A half hour later I received the electrocardiogram not the echocardiogram. I called back and they were closed.”

Physicians know the benefits of having access to a patient’s complete medical history. Rather than spending time testing to narrow down issues in the patient’s past, MedeFile technology provides physicians with an immediate resource to understand a patient’s health status. The system allows physicians to invest time providing patients with the best care possible.

MedeFile International Inc. (MDFI.OB) Receives Media Coverage from ZDNet.com

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008

Medefile International Inc. received praise and was even referred to as a doctor’s “secret high-tech weapon” in a recent article published on ZDNet.com. The article was written by Dana Blankenhorn, a business journalist with thirty years experience. The article is based on a conversation with Dr. Lorne Stitsky, who runs a Personal Choice Family Practice in Juniper, Florida.

Dr. Stitsky’s practice currently services 200 patients, with the anticipation of an additional 200. Keeping medical records and histories for all of these patients might seem like a mighty task, but with the help of MedeFile, it is a breeze for Dr. Stitsky and he isn’t afraid to admit it. He has his patients take advantage of a small device called a Mededrive, which is a very secure USB memory stick that stores the full medical records of each patient. All of these individual memory sticks are stored securely on a larger remote hard drive, called the Medevault, which can save physicians hundreds of cubic feet of file storage.

Milt Hauser, the CEO of Cedar Knolls, New Jersey-based MedeFile insists that his technology is better than any sort of medical record storage system out on the market. The main advantage is the personal security that Medefile offers. Hauser further elaborated on this security by saying, “…if you try to access it three times with improper security it wipes out the drive. It’s got password and user-name protection. If you’re unconscious, someone can pop this into the laptop, and an emergency screen comes up which the EMS can access. It’s just the information they need to get you stable and transported. Go beyond that and it’s user name and password.”

MedeFile International Inc. (MDFI.OB) On the Scene to Save Lives and Revamp Emergency Situations

Friday, May 23rd, 2008

MedeFile International Inc. (OTCBB: MDFI) is revolutionizing the properly earned negative stigma of emergency room waiting times. The company has designed a solution focused on the preparation and readiness of important medical information dire to timely and proper care.

MedeFile gathers and stores copies of a member’s medical records and consolidates them into an easily accessible digital format, available around the clock, 365 days a year from anywhere in the world. The information is transferred through a highly secured environment, maintaining the patients right to confidentiality.

Guy Lindauer, firefighter and paramedic, has dealt with fire and emergency medical services for nearly 20 years; having accurate information at his fingertips when needed is imperative to any emergency scene.

“Many times we arrive and patients are in bad or critical condition, they may be unconscious and if there aren’t any bystanders to give us any information it can really provide for a bad scene. With MedeFile, all we need is a computer and we can access this information to give you a base life history on a patient’s condition. They may have a cardiac condition that we may need to know about, they may have a previous trauma that we may need to know about; and as well as allergies. We carry many medications, over 30 medications and some of these medications patients may be allergic to, and that’s something that we really need to know about,” Lindauer stated in a MedeFile testimonial.

Brian Bernick, MD Obstetrics and Gynecology, a MedeFile member, witnessed firsthand the terrors of Hurricane Katrina’s aftermath and the “chaos” that came with each patient as he tried to determine their identities, allergies, doses or previous medical conditions. He suggests that having those patients’ files on hand could have maximized care and timeliness.

“Had those patients been subscribers to the MedeFile we would’ve been able to instantaneously maximize their care. I think this technology is applicable to any patient of any age whether it is a child keeping track of their medication, immunization history to the most elderly patient keeping track of their life long history of medications, surgeries, any medical history that they might have, and I think that this is an opportunity of a life time for a patient to be in charge and maintain their medical records,” Bernick stated.

MedeFile, Inc. (MDFI.OB) – Endorsed By Hayes Laboratory

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

According to a recent announcement, MedeFile’s portable electronic medical record storage solutions’ cheering section just got a lot larger. The company signed a strategic marketing agreement with Hayes Clinical Laboratory, one of the largest independent testing facilities in Florida.

Each year, through its five South Florida locations, Hayes Labs administers full-service medical testing to over 180,000 patients. The majority of these recipients are referred by Hayes’ extensive client base of nearly 500 healthcare practitioners. Hayes has expressed its interest in the MedeFile system, hoping to combat testing redundancy, which can occur when accurate track of a patient’s record is not kept. This, of course, leads to financial strain on laboratories and patients alike. Hayes has agreed to offer MedeFile’s product to its patients, as well as actively encourage referring physicians to adopt the cost-cutting system.

Milton Hauser, Chairmain and CEO of MedeFile stated, “MedeFile is on a mission to educate the nation’s healthcare community on the fact that centralizing actual medical records with the patient is the key to achieving real, positive change to the U.S. healthcare delivery system. By winning the support of respected medical institutions and providers, such as Hayes Labs, we are succeeding in helping others to realize and appreciate the many important convenience, care-enhancing and cost-saving benefits made possible with the MedeFile solution.”
