About the project Emergency ID
Emergency ID is the joint venture project of Michael Kania, Dr. Laura Dalhaus and Laurent Pellegrino. They work together to create a meaningful emergency data storage on the smartphone for everyone
To allow. While initially pursuing their own goals to better provide the rescue service with medical data to their emergency patients, they had some time ago. Now they are pulling together to implement a successful concept and to make it even better.
The emergency ID team
Michael Kania has been a firefighter and rescue service for more than 20 years and therefore knows what is important in an emergency. He often had to experience critical situations in which life-threatening patient data could not be obtained in time, for example, with pre-existing conditions, medications or allergies.
That is why he decided in 2013 that he wanted to improve this situation. The idea for the bracelets, which contained the most important emergency data, was born. Already a year later, he had the plan to develop an app that would complement this very well-worn bracelet. The goal was and is that as many people as possible store their vital medical data in an easy-to-access app on their smartphone and the rescue service through the emergency armband will draw attention to it.
Dr. Laura Dalhaus
Dr. Dalhaus is the medical soul of the emergency ID project. She supports the team as an experienced emergency physician and specialist in general surgery in all medical-relevant questions, including in the development of the app. It is also responsible for all our customers.
Laurent Pellegrino is the app’s programmer. He also had the idea for an emergency app many years ago when a family member suffered an accident and was treated without the first responders knowing his medical background. Avoidable complications were the result. At the time, Pellegrino had the idea for an app, which facilitated the uncomplicated transmission of medical data.
Due to his upcoming doctoral thesis, he was unable to implement this plan immediately, but resumed it in 2014. Because the existing range of apps was either too cumbersome, too obsolete, or newer mobile devices incompatible, he set about developing a new solution. He then decided together with the others from the emergency ID team & nbsp; Together to ensure a better user experience and thus save live.
How to proceed with emergency ID
The result is a success story: the emergency ID app has already been downloaded from over 8000 people on their smartphone and also the bracelets are very well received. We are constantly working to improve the app and the emergency harnesses, to offer a wider range and other jewels in order to be able to offer an emergency ID as far as possible.
The goal of the project is that as many people as possible unite their important emergency data in the app and carry their emergency armband all the time. Since they usually have their smartphone anyway, they enable the rescue service to make quick and correct decisions in the event of an emergency on the background of the patient’s individual emergency data. Every life that can be saved is a success for the emergency ID team!
