"NALA was founded to help local businesses increase sales and profits through effective tech-savvy advertising and by reducing costs through our popular discount and bartering programs. By also providing them with meaningful value-added benefits, such as MedeFile's personal health record management solution, we aim to empower our members with the tools and resources necessary for them to enhance their and their employees' lives both in and out of the workplace," stated Jeffrey Rosenthal, founder and Chairman of NALA.

Upon enrolling in the customized MedeFile program, NALA members will have 24/7 web-access to their own personal Digital Health Profile, wherein they can securely store their vital health and medical information, including emergency contacts, physicians and hospitals, known allergies, current prescriptions/medications, medical history, medical/legal alerts and relevant health insurance information, among other important data.
