South Florida high school students launch Patient QR, a breakthrough healthcare app using QR Code technology
PARKLAND, FLORIDA, USA, November 16, 2021 – Patient QR, LLCan innovative medical technology company founded by two Florida-based companies high school studentstoday announced the launch of its first offering, Patient QR, a revolutionary new mobile application designed to streamline the transfer of medical information and clinical communication between patients and providers during urgent and non-emergency medical events.
The Patient QR app allows patients to securely upload and store personal health information on their mobile device, such as ID, insurance details, medical history, medications, allergies, lab reports and medical imaging results. Once information is stored, Patient QR generates a QR code that the patient voluntarily shares with nurses, doctors, or emergency medical personnel for quick, contactless transfer of information during a medical event. Patient QR also allows users to separately upload and store health information of family members such as children or parents and this application can be placed in your Apple wallet.
Isabel (Izzy) Zahalsky and Ethan ZahalskyNorth Broward Preparatory School students and co-founders of Patient QR, created the new mobile healthcare app to make it faster and easier to transmit health information between patients and providers and between emergency providers and the emergency personnel.
“In medicine, saving time means saving lives,” says Izzy Zahalsky. “Using QR code technology, Patient QR saves valuable time for patients and healthcare providers and can reduce the risk of medical errors by minimizing the risk of a patient forgetting a medication or allergy.”
“The question is simple, if you can’t breathe due to Covid-19, how do you effectively give someone your medical history? – Well, now it’s possible with Patient QR,” says Ethan Zahalsky. “It is unreasonable for the medical industry to expect a person who is having difficulty breathing to answer 10 to 30 minutes of questions before seeking medical attention. By facilitating this process, patients and doctors will save time, and therefore lives.”
Management meetings have already begun with Broward Health Coral Springs, a distinguished community hospital in Coral Springs, Florida, regarding the integration and distribution of Patient QR.
“Patient QR has the ability to transform the way we practice medicine, streamlining the flow of information from patient to provider,” said Jared Smith, CEO of Broward Health Coral Springs.
“The most amazing thing about Patient QR is that we can save lives every day all over the world without even knowing who those people are. This is the true definition of paying it forward,” says Izzy Zahalsky.
Patient QR can be found on the App Store on Apple devices and the Google Play store on Android devices, or by scanning the QR code on the Patient QR app icon.
