Portrait Health(TM) Emergency Medical Data Retrieval Program-Glycemion Strategies Announces Free Membership for Diabetes Educators
Date:2/9/2010

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Glycemion Strategies, Inc., an Illinois-based company that develops strategic initiatives for diabetic consumers and their professional healthcare providers, announced today a new Emergency Medical Data Retrieval Program to benefit the 30,000 US Diabetes Educators and the more than 4 million diabetic clients they serve.

The Portrait Health™ Emergency Medical Data Retrieval Program is designed to provide real-time access to health information, especially in times of crisis, and automatic live operator notification to the member's emergency contact when the card's emergency feature is used.  Jeremy Warner, Director of Operations explains, "The Portrait Health™ Program enables individuals to quickly build an on-line personal health record, including an emergency medical profile of medications, allergies, diagnoses and emergency contacts.  Such information is critically essential to emergency medical responders when providing care during a crisis or catastrophe if the injured is unable to communicate and provide a medical history, and the next of kin cannot provide the needed information."  Dr. Jack Maggiore, Chief Scientific Officer explains, "Without immediate access to this vital medical information, delays in treatment may result, and the ensuing complications may cause permanent disability or death."  In the event of an emergency of a Portrait Health™ Card member, EMT's or emergency room personnel will be able to contact Portrait Health™, and using the unique account number found on your card, can talk live to a customer care specialist who will provide your specified emergency medical data to the provider in real time, at any time.

Whether you are the victim of an accident or the family member at home, the Portrait Health™ Record Emergency Contact Information assures that family members can be reached when necessary.  Dr. Maggiore further explains, "Due to fluctuations in blood sugar levels, diabetics can experience incoherence and loss of consciousness.  In addition, most diabetics take multiple drugs for co-morbidities of diabetes, including circulatory disorders, heart disease and kidney disease.  The Portrait Health™ Program maintains all this critical information and provides convenience and peace of mind for diabetes patients, their families, and their healthcare providers."

Through this new program, all diabetes educators are eligible for a free one-year membership in the Portrait Health™ program.  With their complimentary membership card each Diabetes Educator will receive 10 additional Portrait Health™ Cards that provide a 50% discount rate for their patients.  All members in this program will receive a free monthly newsletter on timely health topics, and special offers on diabetes care products and services, including free hemoglobin A1c tests.  Diabetes Educators can sign up for their free membership at www.portraithealth.org
