In an emergency, you want to make sure that first responders get quick access to lifesaving information. Medical I.D. bracelets have been in use for some time, but they have only been able to tell part of your story.  Using Microsoft Tag is a great way to store a patient's medical background. That’s why Alert Medical Tags is incorporating Tag technology into their emergency medical ID system and secure information storage.

By scanning the Tag that is printed on a card or bracelet, medics get access to a host of important information such as allergies, medical conditions and history, medications that the person is using, emergency contact information, insurance information and a list of the patient’s doctors.

It’s a great thing to have if you like to live like a dare devil, but it is also a practical way to have vital medical and emergency information for you, your children and your aging parents wherever you and they go.

How else would you use Microsoft Tag to make sure that you always had important information at your fingertips (or smartphone)? Let us know in the comments below or on Facebook and Twitter.
