What is a Control Group Health Card?
The Health Card is an “In Case of Emergency” card that you keep on you at all times. If you are ever found unconscious or unable to communicate, the QR code can be scanned to show important information about you, your health and your advanced medical decisions. The card instructs whoever finds it to scan the QR code in an emergency.
Scan the QR Code on Emily's card with your phone camera to see an example.
Why would I need such a card?
Our health is undoubtedly our most valuable asset, and it is essential that we maintain control over what happens to and goes into our bodies.
That is why we created the Control Group Health Card (CGHC) - to empower our members to express their decisions regarding their medical care and ensures this important information is readily available when needed.
By carrying the CGHC and regularly updating your records, you can have peace of mind knowing that your health information is easily accessible in times of need, even if you are unable to communicate for yourself.
This card is particularly beneficial for those with complex medical histories or chronic conditions who require specialised care. In short, the CGHC offers a simple, yet powerful method for helping to communicate your health information.
Make sure your friends, relations and health professionals know you carry the Health Card!
