AUCKLAND, New Zealand, Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- New Zealand health technology company Medtech Global, MedicAlert Foundation International, and MedicAlert New Zealand have collaborated to develop an electronic health information solution that enables New Zealand Emergency services to access medical records of visiting international MedicAlert members in real time.

Described as a "world first" the long term vision for the solution is to enable emergency services including Paramedics and Hospital Emergency Departments to access life saving medical information of travelling MedicAlert members from New Zealand and overseas, through its reliable, trustworthy and internationally recognised service.

The solution has been demonstrated to Health Minister Tony Ryall, who said "It makes a lot of sense to connect this information together so that visitors' health information is easily accessible by clinicians."

He is pleased to see New Zealand advancements in the system of delivering secure, health records around New Zealand being extended globally. "Medtech's development of its health information sharing system, together with MedicAlert, shows New Zealand is at the cutting edge of health IT," Mr Ryall says.

MedicAlert New Zealand has launched the service this week to cater for international visitors expected to come to New Zealand for the Rugby World cup event. Initially the solution will connect visitors from a number of countries which include the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, Wa
