  • Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC (1888PressRelease) March 10, 2011 - Nancy McFarlane, president of MedPro Rx, Inc. (, a provider of specialty pharmacy services to clients with chronic illnesses who need clotting factor, IVIg and other medications, has announced the launch and support of KIDBase on its website. KIDBase is a program developed in 1999 by the N.C. State Office of Emergency Medical Services for Children. The project is intended to better prepare families, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel and caregivers for emergencies involving a medically fragile child.

    KIDBase allows parents of children with bleeding disorders and other chronic medical conditions to register their medical information with local EMS agencies in case of future emergencies. Upon introduction into the program, a medical information sheet is created for the child containing data on his or her name, address, medical diagnosis, baseline information, current medications and any emergency medical plans that may already be in place.

    "We believe it is crucial for persons with chronic conditions to prepare themselves for the possibility of an emergency situation," said McFarlane. "KIDBase helps parents prepare for any situation that might occur by creating a system of information among the necessary people and services. Being prepared can save precious minutes and prevent accidents that stem from ignorance of the medical situation."

    "KIDBase is a wonderful program because it provides portable medical summaries to emergency healthcare providers in the event of an emergency," said Tiffany Holland, a North Carolina EMSC KIDBase board member. "As a mother of a child with a bleeding disorder, this program gives me the peace of mind of knowing that in an emergency, EMS professionals would have easy access to my child's crucial health information."
