Medical Information Card Gives Emergency Personnel Instant Access to AAA Arizona Members' Critical Medical Information, 24/7, Worldwide

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - May 19, 2011) - miCARD and AAA Arizona, Arizona's most trusted auto club, have partnered to provide AAA Arizona members with a medical information card that prepares members for an unanticipated medical emergency. Embracing a proactive approach to emergency preparedness gives AAA Arizona members peace of mind and helps medical personnel make lifesaving decisions during a medical emergency.

"We are pleased to add miCARD to our list of Discount partners," said AAA Arizona Vice President of Strategy and Business Development Todd McGee. "We believe our members will benefit from the critical service miCARD provides first responders in emergency situations."

miCARD is the only medical information card and online Personal Health Record(PHR) designed by an emergency physician. In less than one minute, miCARD gives medical personnel in the field a readable summary of a member's vital medical information. This includes: current medical conditions, critical medications, emergency contacts, critical allergies and more. miCARD's wallet card is further supported by an online PHR which stores additional member information such as: advance directives, physician contacts, EKGs, lab results and current medications. All personal medical information is stored securely online and viewable at the miCARD website 24/7 by treating medical providers worldwide.

"Critical decisions about your health are made in the first few minutes of your emergency care," said Dr. James Kelley, a practicing ER physician and co-founder of miCARD.
