MedicAlert Kid Smart is a membership designed to protect children and teens from age 0-17.
At MedicAlert Foundation®, our mission is to ensure emergency professionals are aware of the patient information available on each person wearing a MedicAlert® ID. We are available 24/7 to communicate personal health information to emergency response personnel in a matter of seconds.
With nearly 7,000 rare diseases listed by the National Institute of Health, many diseases have names that most emergency personnel have only heard in one instance, if at all. Appropriate treatment that is effective for the average person may be contradicted in another as a result of a disease process.Therefore, we work with emergency responders to provide education on effective treatment options.
Over 100,000 MedicAlert members credit the use of medical identification for saving their lives. At MedicAlert Foundation we know that the ones who save lives are the first responders, paramedics, and emergency department personnel who respond and treat our members. The partnership of the emergency crews, our members and MedicAlert Foundation is a key to the positive patient outcomes reported each year.
