Big, HIP news for local company
Submitted photo

Health ID Profile (HIP), conceptualized by Cranston resident Angelo Pitassi Jr. and Johnston resident Christopher Melo, made it to the big leagues recently when they were featured at the Verizon booth at the annual Consumer Electronics Show. HIP medical ID bands use field communication technology that stores critical medical information, including prescriptions, allergies and medical history. Pitassi came up with the concept after his son was diagnosed with diabetes as a baby. Pitassi’s son wears his Health ID bracelet at all time, ensuring that first responders and medical professionals will always have updated, accurate information about their patient. Pitassi and Melo are pictured here at the Verizon booth, showing off their product. For more information, visit www.healthid.me.
