Exclusive opportunity from the AOA: new patient safety card that leverages QR technology

By AOA Staff


The AOA is proud to announce an exclusive joint patient safety initiative with The Broselow Institute to introduce Emergency and Telemedicine Safety Cards to our members and their patients at no cost. The cards, which leverage patented barcode technology, provide an innovative way to support patient safety during acute transitions of care and with telemedicine visits.

Each card has a unique QR code that allows your patient to easily store*, update and share important, basic medical information such as:

  • Medications
  • Allergies
  • Pertinent medical history
  • Emergency contact information

When scanned with a smart phone at the point of care, your patient’s health care team will have instant access to the information they may need. Editable as the patient condition or situation changes, this innovation can save lives, time and money. To obtain the Emergency and Telemedicine Safety Card or to learn more, AOA members and/or individual users can visit

*Stored data is only accessible by the patient and/or holder of the unique QR code at the patient’s discretion.
