Healthcare Information When You Need It Most

Regardless of where you are, Joan can arrange for you to have your healthcare documents and medical information at your fingertips. In the event that you require immediate medical care, especially when being treated at an unfamiliar hospital, you or your loved ones can simply present the attending physician with a specialized wallet card. This card lists allergies, medications, emergency contact information and instructions on how to obtain all healthcare-related documents such as a living will, healthcare power of attorney and organ donation forms. Hospital personnel will have access to your important nfo, allowing them to view only your healthcare-related documents. By providing caregivers access to your vital medical information, you can help prevent hospital errors which occur all too often when treating new patients.

Your Documents… Everywhere You Are

In addition to storing medical information, Joan gives you the option to store your most important documents for easy and secure retrieval anywhere at any time. With access to a computer, you can securely view all of your stored documents in one convenient location.

Security and Privacy

Joan's secure architecture, similar to that used by banks for online transactions, creates an ideal platform for transmission of sensitive documents. HIPAA-Compliant SSL connection assures a high level of security and privacy.
