World's First Medical Identification Franchise Launches at Miami's Franchise Expo South

eMed-ID Plans Thousands of Franchisees Nationally With More than 1,800 in Florida Alone

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Jan. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- eMed-ID, the world's first medical identification franchise, announced today the launch of its low-cost, home-based franchise concept that provides a personal USB device to consumers containing their comprehensive medical history. eMed-ID is a simple way for consumers to document their private medical history on an easy-to-carry or wearable USB device. Using eMed-ID's proprietary software, the consumer's medical history can then be easily shared with a doctor, pharmacist or paramedic in lieu of filling out complicated medical forms.

eMed-ID represents a prime franchise opportunity given the current economic conditions by providing interested franchisees and Area Directors with a low-cost of entry. The company is currently offering qualified candidates a business opportunity with a total investment of less than $10,000. Three-year term financing is being offered to qualified candidates for approximately $38 a week. Area Directorships are also available for $29,950 to those interested in recruiting franchisees and owning a protected territory of 200,000 residents. In addition, the franchise provides Veterans a $2,450 discount and a three percent reduction on financing interest.

The company plans to recruit 20 Area Directors, representing more than 400 eMed-ID franchises throughout the country in 2009, with 1,800 franchises planned in Florida including 300 in Miami-Dade County alone.

"As the economy continues to falter, eMed-ID presents a great opportunity for entrepreneurs interested in starting their own home-based business with a low-cost of entry," said Lonnie Helgerson, President & COO, eMed-ID Franchising, LLC. "eMed-ID is a full-time solution for those out of work or a part-time proposition for those looking for a second stream of income."

eMed-ID offers immediate access to essential medical information that helps consumers avoid life-threatening delays in treatment, medical or surgical complications, allergic reactions and medication errors. The company provides support to HIPAA's national compliance program designed to have all patient medical records converted to digital images by 2015.

Consumers who purchase the tax-deductible eMed-ID package for $69.95 receive the eMed-ID USB wristband, four eMed-ID caregiver cards, two eMed-ID refrigerator cards and a bound report. In addition, eMed-ID is the only medical identification product that also provides customers with a legally-binding healthcare surrogate, HIPAA release and living will.

eMed-ID also partners with the "Silver Alert" program, modeled after "Amber Alert," to help protect an increasing number of citizens with cognitive impairments.

eMed-ID is guided by a seasoned management team with in-depth experience in both franchising and technology. Led by Lonnie Helgerson, the newly launched franchise benefits from management's extensive background in building Ident-A-Kid into the world's largest child safety franchise.
