StickyJ Medical ID & Backpack Health Partner to Improve Instant Access to Critical Health Information

Partnership Enhances Patient Medical Identification by Linking Health Information to Wearable Accessories, Instantly Providing First Responders with Full Health Records

Seminole, FL, and Dover, MA – March 5, 2019 – Sticky J Medical ID has partnered with Backpack Health, LLC to improve the way patients carry and share their medical information, providing health professionals and first responders with instant access to life-saving data. Backpack Health’s free cloud-based data management platform enables patients to store their up-to-date personal health records securely on any device. By wearing designated StickyJ Medical ID accessories engraved with unique URLs that link to their Backpack Health Emergency Share Card, individuals always have their full health records on hand during an emergency or when being admitted to the hospital – and the information is available in Backpack Health’s six supported languages, making travel more accessible for those with complex and chronic conditions.

“Not everyone can list all of their medical information on a medical ID bracelet, and the information changes from time to time as well,” said Barry Torman of StickyJ Medical. “We are delighted to be partnering with Backpack Health so that our customers can have the most time-critical medical information engraved on their medical alert bracelet along with a unique URL that will help inform EMS and hospital personnel about their other health issues. We’re especially pleased to be able to bring this service to StickyJ Medical customers at no charge.”

The Backpack Health platform provides users with an Emergency Share Card to detail their most crucial health information, including any relevant files, images, or documents, and allows them to create and share a unique, secure web address (URL) to provide loved ones and health professionals with access to this information in case of emergency. Partnering with StickyJ Medical ID takes this offering to the next level by integrating these URLs with attractive wearable accessories, making the patient’s complete health records uniquely accessible at all times – no downloads or logins required.

“StickyJ has been serving the rare and complex disease community for years, saving patients’ lives by providing easy access to health information,” said Jim Cavan, CEO and co-founder of Backpack Health. “We are thrilled to be working with StickyJ to enhance their offering by making it the conduit to a world of fully updateable health information. This collaboration changes how medical responders will receive information, and we are honored to play a role in improving how critical information is communicated in emergency situations.”
