ViVre Medical Expands Partnership with Project Lifesaver; All Clients' Medical Records to be Instantly Accessible with Free LifeGuardONE™

Oct 07, 2010, 11:00 ET from Project Lifesaver International

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Oct. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today at the Project Lifesaver Annual Conference, ViVre Medical, Inc., and Project Lifesaver International announced that they have expanded their partnership and will be extending the benefits of mobile medical histories to all Project Lifesaver clients at no cost to them.

A new product developed by ViVre Medical called LifeGuardONE™ will be provided to all Project Lifesaver clients during their next scheduled visit by Project Lifesaver representatives. During these visits, LifeGuardONE™ enrollment kits will be handed out free, thanks to a donation by ViVre Medical as part of its $6 million Corporate Social Responsibility program.

Project Lifesaver is the launch customer for LifeGuardONE™, a new service that allows people to store their complete medical histories for fast and easy retrieval at the scene of an emergency. Doctors, nurses, medics or EMTs provide a LifeGuardONE™ customer's unique LifePin® number to ViVre Medical's 24/7 call center, secure website or automatic text-back system. In return they learn that patient's medical conditions, treatments, allergies, medications and other critical information.

"Project Lifesaver protects people who wander away from their homes due to Alzheimer's, autism, dementia and other cognitive conditions," said James Ramsey, president of ViVre Medical. "Because these same conditions can make it difficult for people to communicate their medical needs to rescuers, ViVre saw a critical need to step in and help."

ViVre Medical and Project Lifesaver had previously partnered to make another ViVre Medical product available to Project Lifesaver customers at significant savings to them. This product, called LifeGuard30™, includes all of the benefits of LifeGuardONE™ plus a mobile medical display device that works without outside power, internet or phone service. As part of today's announcement, ViVre Medical reaffirmed its commitment to continue making LifeGuard30™ systems available to those in need.
