MedicAlert celebrates 55 years of business

TURLOCK - In 1956, Dr. Marion Collins pioneered the first emergency medical information system with the establishment of MedicAlert Foundation. Fast forward 55 years, and the nonprofit, charitable foundation remains at the forefront of the medical identification and information industry. Providing the functionality of an e-Health Information Exchange, MedicAlert has expanded its service offerings to remain the leading emergency medical information service.

The foundation prides itself on being both “high tech” and “high touch”; providing electronic medical records and other advanced healthcare services, yet maintaining its live call center where members and first responders speak with customer care agents from its Turlock headquarters.
