Emergency Medical Information -Easy Access on Your iPhone

When I purchased a new iPhone, one of my sons was eager to show me all of the cool features.  If you do not have a teenager (i.e. house IT specialist) in the house, you may not have taken advantage of the health app built into the iPhone 6.  This can be very useful for you and your patients.

One feature of the health app is that it allows you to store emergency contact information and health information that’s accessible from your device’s Lock screen. First responders or good Samaritans will be able to call the emergency contacts listed in Medical ID.  This health app also can function as an activity tracker.
