MedeFile International, Inc supports American Red Cross for Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Fund
15% of all new MedeFile membership revenues through April 15th to be donated to American Red Cross for Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Fund.
MedeFile International, Inc. a leader in Internet-enabled Personal Health Record (iPHR) management solutions, announced that in response to the magnitude 8.9 earthquake and massive tsunami tragedy that recently struck Japan, the company will donate 15% of all online sales of MedeFile memberships – processed through its website till April 15, 2011 – to the American Red Cross for the Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Fund.
Kevin Hauser, President and CEO of MedeFile, stated, "The twin natural disasters that so devastated Japan serve as yet another reminder to us all how precious life is and how quickly the lives of survivors and others affected can be forever altered by tragic events totally out of their control. Sadly, the related loss of vital paper documents, including medical, legal, financial and personal records, can prove to greatly exasperate the lasting catastrophic effects of a disaster, as many Americans learned firsthand during Hurricane Katrina in 2005. What's more, according to the World Meteorological Organisation, millions worldwide were impacted by the 950 natural disasters recorded just last year – nine-tenths of which were severe weather-related storms and floods. This made 2010 the year with the second highest number of natural catastrophes in the past 30 years."
Continuing, Hauser said, "Our Company was founded on the premise that individuals can and should be in full control of their and their loved ones' health records -- anywhere, anytime. Moreover, we have successfully architected a full-safe system that ensures that all records collected are protected from natural disaster, fire, loss and theft. In fact, security and on-demand access of a person's actual medical records have long been key hallmarks of the MedeFile system. But, it is the peace of mind we can deliver our members that we are most proud. Through this special relief initiative, we hope to achieve two critical objectives: providing our new members with both peace of mind and a meaningful way for helping the people of Japan."
