MedicAlert Foundation and Hope Paige Partner to Further Public Safety and Extend 24/7 Protection to Medical ID Wearers
Date:9/5/2013

Turlock, CA (PRWEB) September 05, 2013

MedicAlert Foundation International, the leading nonprofit emergency information and support network, announced Hope Paige Medical ID Marketplace as the first medical ID provider selected to the new integrated “network” of elite emergency medical identification providers. The addition of Hope Paige, which offers fashionable and contemporary medical emergency bracelets, to the new network is a first step in establishing a uniform set of standards and operating procedures designed to further public safety and health.

“The inclusion of Hope Paige into our new ‘network’ expands our efforts to help protect consumers and ensure organizations offer medical IDs and services that emergency personnel will easily identify and correctly utilize during emergency situations,” said Andrew Wigglesworth, president and CEO of MedicAlert Foundation.

The new network was created to elevate standards among medical ID developers and expand MedicAlert’s 24-hour emergency network to wearers of all participating medical ID companies. By adhering to MedicAlert’s Code of Conduct, the network will ensure consumers benefit from quality services and consumer protections. The network will adhere to privacy protections by providing HIPAA-compliant and secure storage of personal health information and will provide medical ID products that are identifiable to emergency responders and adhere to the highest product standards.

The addition of Hope Paige into MedicAlert’s new network helps guarantee standards are established in an unregulated field where products of any kind can be sold as medical identification. “We are proud to forge this partnership with MedicAlert,” said Shelly Fisher, president and CEO of Hope Paige, adding, “Together we are committed to elevating standards and establishing consistency within the industry to ensure safety, confidence and appropriate consumer protections for all medical ID wearers.”

Through the partnership, in addition to meeting the network standards, Hope Paige also has the opportunity to offer MedicAlert 24/7 emergency response services as an optional extension to their medical IDs.

“The inclusion of MedicAlert services to Hope Paige medical IDs will offer additional protection and security to their customers,” said Wigglesworth.

With four million members worldwide, MedicAlert is working with other organizations to further establish the new “network” and its mission to ensure standards and procedures are in place to protect consumers from fraudulent, and improper, usage of medical IDs and services.

Today, Hope Paige products and services are in thousands of retail stores and doctor’s offices across the country. Hope Paige partners with Ronald McDonald House Charities, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Kids with Food Allergies, The College Diabetes Network and many others in their continued efforts to raise awareness and support charities.
