Registration in the program is fast, secure and free. Area residents simply call 1-800-EINSTEIN or visit http://www.einstein.edu/prereg where they will voluntarily provide as much relevant information (name, primary care physician, insurance information, etc.) as they want about themselves and any family members they wish to enroll. Einstein logs this information and sends them special ID tags that can be carried in their wallet or on a key chain. If they ever have a need to visit the Elkins Park ER, the card is scanned and their information automatically entered, saving the patient valuable time and avoiding extra paperwork in an actual emergency.
Patient information is 100 percent secure, because the ID cards contain no personal information and can only be scanned at the Einstein at Elkins Park Emergency Department. If the ID tag is ever lost, the participant need only call Einstein for a replacement.
