Imagine the worst happening: You’re in an accident, unconscious, in a strange town — or even your own. At the hospital, the physician needs to know your background in order to effectively treat you.

But you can’t speak. You’re not even awake.

A Beverly Hills entrepreneur, Robert Lorsch, was in town today and demonstrated a fascinating Web site, which can take a boatload of scanned images — and the scanning can be done via a fax machine — and store them very securely. In an emergency, a physician can get to just the items you want or need them to know. You, on the other hand, can store all sorts of personal information, safe and sound in case of disaster or need.

I like the concept a lot; it has tremendous potential. I plan to more fully examine the system in the next couple of weeks, with a full review in a Tuesday “On Computers” column. Meanwhile, the site — and the concept — are well worth your exploration.
