Case 1 :
Problem : : Patients with cognitive issues can find themselves in situations where care givers that are knowledgeable of their histories and needs are not present.
Metal or other permanent QRnotes labels are placed on patients 'non-removable' jewelry (bracelets , etc). QRnotes can also be printed on "iron on" paper that can then be "ironed on" to the patient's clothing. Patient's care giver then scans the QRnote and adds applicable contact and treatment information, pictures, web links. (When using multiple QRnote labels, one label is easily linked to the 'master' , effectively making copies of the original QRnote.)
When needed "other" individuals can scan the QRnote to get needed information to help patient.
As situations change the QRnotes information can be updated remotely by care givers. HIPAA privacy rules are easily maintained by use of a free Goggle Document page which can be 'published but restricted' to listed personnel - all protected by Goggle level security to access data.
Case 2 :
Problem : Many patients do not remember medical histories and prescriptions and cannot provide that information to medical personnel such as emergency rooms and new physicians.
Solution : A QRnote is attached to an insurance card and medical information is entered on to it.
Results : Patients or medical professionals can scan the patients insurance card QRnote and read the required medical information . If desired, the QRnote can be password protected and the phone number of next of kin that then provides the password .
Case 3 :
Problem : A variety of visual , speech, and cognitive disorders can prevent a person from reading and/or talking (see ADA requirements)
QRnotes has built in "Text-To-Speech" capabilities with a "speaking" icon automatically placed under each text field. Pressing the "speaking" icon causes the text in the associated text fields to be read out loud.
A QRnote is placed on an item or items that the user normally has with them. The patient can scan the QRnote and select the note with the desired text by reading or by looking at the attached image. The patient then just presses the "Text-To_Speech" icon to have the desired text read out-loud to either themselves or the people around them.
Case 4 :
Problem : Many medical providers, specifically Medicaid and Medicare, have website portals (CMS, etc) but the links are too difficult and complex for patients to follow. In many cases
payments are negatively effected if a percentage of customers do not use Internet portals.
Solution : A QRnote is attached to the providers "CMS type card" with the providers portal link pre-configured.
Results : Patients can scan the QRnote on their 'CMS type card' and be automatically taken to the portal. FASter and more accurate information improves care and , in some case, payments.
