The Yellow Bracelet is a project aimed at people who currently have a domiciliary package of care.
Domiciliary care providers upload details of their care packages on to a highly secure back end platform.
Sundown Solutions' systems then generate a specific GUID for that package and a subsequent individual QR code for that package.
A medical yellow wrist band is printed off and sent to the relevant care provider.
On the next visit to the service user, the care worker places the person's bracelets inside their care package file and places a Yellow sticker on the inside of the door.
The ambulance services are fully briefed: if they see a yellow sticker, to take the bracelet and put it on the right wrist of the patient if a conveyance is necessary. However, they are also able to view the QR code to gain
details of the care package in order to enable a fully informed risk assessment. This may invoke an alternative action rather than to convey the person. The process is the same for ICT and district nurses.
When the patient arrives at A&E (or a ward), hospital staff will be able to scan the Yellow Bracelet QR code using their registered device and receive basic, non-PII data about the patient's care package and direct contact details
for their care provider. Enabling them to communicate information in real-time, healthcare professional to healthcare professional.
