[Source: Luci Scott, The Arizona Republic] – A Chandler man has a patent pending for a medical bracelet with a memory card that he says could save paperwork and even lives.

The inventor, Jeff Hexamer, says the card will contain a person’s photo, medical history, insurance information, blood type, medications, past surgeries, X-rays, emergency contacts and whether the patient is an organ donor.

A patient entering a hospital would be saved a lot of paperwork by simply giving an admissions clerk the memory card, he said.
