This partnership will let travellers with Trip Mate protection plans have access to FootprintID’s Portable Personal Health Records, allowing users to take their medical information with them everywhere they go.
“This partnership is a natural fit for both brands as FootprintID helps elevate the level of care that we provide our clients,” said Chris Carnicelli, CEO of GGA. “When people are travelling, having ready and secure access to their medical information can be vitally important. Knowing critical medical data is available at their fingertips anywhere in the world provides Trip Mate customers with peace of mind so that they can enjoy their trip.”
Accessible medical information anywhere in the world
Trip Mate’s travel protection services will now provide FootprintID registration information to their policyholders going forward. Travellers can then register for the service and upload their necessary information to FootprintID. The benefits of their service include:
- Medical and health information is accessible anywhere in the world via a membership card, web portal, or mobile app
- Documents are easily shared with physicians, emergency responders, healthcare providers, pharmacies, and family
- Unlimited storage of test results, imaging files, and documents – such as health care proxies and advanced directives – provides access to critical information
- All relevant medical information including emergency contacts, prescriptions, allergies, conditions, immunizations, physicians, surgeries, and family history – all in one safe location.
“We’re excited to partner with GGA and to be part of Trip Mate’s offerings,” said Beth Tofel, President and Co-Founder of FootprintID. “We know our product works well with GGA’s 24/7 Travel Assistance Services and can help save lives by allowing doctors and patients worldwide to make more informed care decisions.”
