With the latest iPhone update, there is a new feature that doctors and nurses say can save your life! Many patients go to the emergency room and the doctors have had no way of knowing who the patient was or who they should contact.
But did you 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.
