Android Health App

Have you given any thought to how emergency medical care providers know who to contact or what to do if you are in an accident?

Some people wear wristbands that contain important health information, such as drug allergies. Did you know that there’s a great tool located in something many of us already carry every day—our our smartphones.

Health at Your Fingertips

In a previous blog post, we let our readers know about the Health app accessible on their iPhones. The iPhone, manufactured by Apple Inc., comes with a free Health app which allows users to track details of their health.

Health is a great app for ensuring medical personnel, such as of emergency room staff and paramedics, have critical information for both treatment and contact purposes.

Not an iPhone user? Android users, rejoice!

Many of our clients have asked if there is a similar app for Android phones. Medical ID, an app for Android phones, is a health and fitness app very similar to iPhone’s Health app.

Users can choose the information that is displayed, and the information input into the emergency card is not shared with other apps. Medical personnel can access the Medical ID app and have access to information such as your:

  • Birth date;
  • Medical conditions;
  • Vaccines
  • Medical notes;
  • Allergies and reactions;
  • Blood type;
  • Height and weight; and
  • Emergency contact information.

With apps like the Health app and Medical ID, you can arm your emergency health care providers with critical information, potentially saving your life and ensuring your loved ones are contacted in the event of an emergency. So why not take a few minutes to take advantage of this valuable, free tool today?
