EPI begins with a simple online form. You can record the vital information you want people to know if there’s an emergency – who to call, the names of your doctors, your medical conditions, the medicines you take, your allergies, past surgeries, and your immunizations.

After you complete the form, print your EPI Card and carry it with you. The card displays a unique identification number called a Rescue Login. Following 3 easy steps printed on the EPI Card, anyone with Internet access can enter your Rescue Login at www.infosolutions.net to view the information you have recorded in EPI.
