LifeSaverApp is an online personal health record that is immediately available in the event of a medical emergency. It is ideal for anyone with chronic health conditions or someone traveling who needs immediate access to their medical history. 911 SafeChild gathers information about a child's activities and creates an immediate missing child report in the event of an abduction or kidnapping. It saves hours developing an Amber Alert when every second counts. CareNotesOnline allows home healthcare agencies and assisted living facilities to communicate immediate information about care provided to individuals. It solves the communication gap that occurs when families are geographically separated from their loved ones. 911 DisasterPlan identifies vulnerable individuals within a community and tracks evacuation in the event of a natural or man-made disaster. Each of the products within LifeSaver Group has the potential to save thousands of lives. Because time is of the essence in emergency situations, LifeSaver Group stresses immediate access to lifesaving information.
