Frequently Asked Questions about MyNotify
CONVENIENT, AFFORDABLE EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SERVICES, WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST.
Q. WHY WOULD I NEED THIS SERVICE FOR MYSELF, MY FAMILY OR MY EMPLOYEES
A. Last year there were over 6 million car accidents and 20 million emergency room visits. On average it takes a hospital 6 hours to contact a family member of a patient that is unable to respond and doesn’t have emergency contact information on them. In the event of an accident or medical emergency six hours can seem like a lifetime or a matter of life or death. For as little as 12 cents per day you can have peace of mind knowing that if anything happens to you your family or an employee, we will begin notifying people on that person’s contact list within 10 minutes of our staff being alerted. In addition, for some people, every minute counts when it comes to getting treatment. If a person has special medical conditions, medications, allergies, etc., the ability for medical personnel to know this information CAN save their life. Through the use of the medical history section of the member portal, this information can be saved and made available to the personnel treating the patient.
