In the event of an emergency, MedicAlert Foundation will contact your physician/provider and notify them. Physician/provider notification is important during medical emergencies as it enables continuous, comprehensive care and improves coordination between you, your physician, and other providers.
MedicAlert’s Emergency Response Center will communicate with your physician to relay information about your situation and location (treatment facility); this allows for your physician to remain in communication with the treating facility and keep abreast of the treatment and care you are receiving.
The Physician/Provider Notification service provides:
- Your physician with information about your situation and location
- The comfort of knowing your physician is informed of the treatment and care you are receiving
- Improved follow-up care after your medical emergency
