What is a Microsoft® Scan Tag?
A Microsoft® Scan Tag is a unique, two-dimensional matrix barcode that is readable
by most smartphones with applications dedicated
to scanning them. Similar to the original QR code that was created by Denso-Wave
in 1994, and has black pixels and squares in a square pattern on a white background
but the Microsoft® Scan Tag is unique and has color. Both the QR Code and Microsoft®
Scan Tag are meant to be quickly read, and save time and space compared to traditional
Microsoft® Scan Tags bridge the gap between offline and online worlds by enabling
most smartphones to rapidly scan a barcode-like image from our Alert Medical Tag
products and immediately connect to digital content, whether a website, graphical
image, or in the case of this Microsoft® Scan Tag, vitally important medical
information. Emergency Medical First Responders use these scan tags to access members’
personal health records instantly in the case of an emergency. All your relevant
medical history is right there in the code. You choose what medical information
to input into your personalized medical profile.
Our Customers carry a Medical Alert Card or Emergency Medical Dog Tag which is printed
with their unique Medical Scan Tag 2D barcode. Should an emergency happen, first
responders are able to scan the Microsoft® Scan Tag to instantly gain access
to their personal health information. The Microsoft® Scan Tag reveals everything
from medical history to allergies, current prescriptions and potential drug interactions,
list of doctors, and emergency (ICE) contacts.
Our Medical Scan Tag system doesn't give your Smart Phone an account number that
has to be re-entered into a computer. It is up front and visible when using a computer
or Smart Phone.
An Emergency Medical First Responder can quickly read the information using this
new Scan Tag Technology to save time, which could save a life.
Mobile technology has been serving emergency medical professionals well in recent
years. With this advanced technology, Emergency Medical Technicians and First Responders
have been able to get in contact with hospitals and emergency dispatchers faster
than ever before. With Medical Scan Tags entering the medical field, Emergency Medical
Technicians now have quicker access to medical information, which will allow them
to meet the needs of patients in need of immediate care.
How It Works?
When you buy an Alert Medical Tag, you create a personal customized medical profile
with two security levels. The first is accessible by entering your Alert Tag serial
number which confirms this is your information. The second area, which requires
an additional password for the Alert Medical Tag, is where
you enter and store relevant confidential information like medical history, prescription
medications, allergies, ICE (in case of emergency) information, Doctors, Notes,
Insurance Information, Immunizations.
We encourage our customers to enter their critical medical history and medications
for medical conditions in their Alert Medical Tag Profile including but not limited
to: Alzheimers, Asthma, Diabetes, Epileptics, Heart Condition, Severe Allergies,
Stroke Victims, and especially those who cannot speak English well enough to describe
their medical condition and medications.
You scan your Alert Medical ID Tag with an application called the Microsoft®
Tag Reader which is available for most smartphones. The Tag Reader uses the camera
on your mobile phone to scan the Tag and then connects via the Internet to our secure
website to get your medical profile information associated with the Tag. On some
phones, you just point your camera at the Tag and the Tag is scanned. On other phones,
you point and then click. Microsoft® Tag requires an Internet connection to
work. Get the tag reader at http://gettag.mobi.
