No one wants to get sick or injured when they’re in a foreign country. The language barrier can be very dangerous. Finding medical help that speaks your language is not guaranteed. Vital information may be missed like pain location, medical history, allergies, or medications. Without proper and timely assessment, this can lead to medical errors or worse.

In the era of mobile apps, medical IDs, and emergency response innovations, we’ve created the 1st Minute App to communicate your medical history and symptoms as fast as possible to those who can help you – when the language barrier is present. The easy-to-use interface allows first responders and medical personnel to receive critical triage information from foreign language speaking patients within 60 seconds.

Global travelers using the App can easily communicate medical history and details of a sickness or injury to paramedics, ERs, and pharmacies in foreign countries. The App does not require an Internet connection since it has a pre-populated language database.
• Faster patient assistance, more accurate care, improved decision support
