Med Records to Go uses flash drive technology to record and store personal health information for emergency viewing by medical personnel and for electronic transmission to medical facilities using Health Level 7 (HL7) standards. A new function of the application includes the transmission of the personal medical records from the storage unit to cell phones.

All software, controls, transmission features, and personal medical records of Med Records to Go are contained in the portable storage unit. To place personal medical records on a cell phone, the encrypted medical data recorded in the storage unit is first sent to the Vital Record Corporation server. User identification and password controls are used with the cell phone application to retrieve the medical records from the server for storage on the phone. The process to place an optional digital picture on the cell phone is performed in similar manner as the medical records.

The supported cell phone models include Android, iPhone, and all Java-enabled phones. The categories of medical information are easily viewed and updated on Android and iPhone using touch screen buttons. For Java-enabled phones, medical information is viewed using simple key pad selection.

The types of personal medical information that can be viewed on the cell phone include identification and general medical data, vital signs information, physicians, prescription and non-prescription drugs, medical history, treatments, emergency contacts, and DNR orders. This information is categorized for easy selection and viewing.

The cell phone applications are available free from the iPhone App Store and Android Market and Vital Record Corporation.
