Medical Id on iphone

Medical Id on iphone

FUN FACT!
Working in the ER we've had many patients come in and have had no way of knowing who they were or how to contact next of kin.
Did you guys know that you (or your patients) can set up something called a "Medical ID" on your iPhone? This can be accessed even while the phone is locked by clicking on the emergency options and can display things like name, DOB, emergency contacts, medical conditions and even blood type! It can be managed by clicking on the little "Health" app that comes default on the phone.
