Emergency Info is an essential app for the sanity of paranoid mothers who obsess over their children’s health. 

The application, developed by iHealth Ventures LLC, enables users to store their medical information, including name, address, phone number, weight, height, blood group, insurance and insurance policy number.  Emergency Info users can also add the name and phone number of their emergency contact as well as physician. The app also stores contact information for a user’s preferred pharmacist as well as hospital preferences, allergies and medications. 

This health app is a great find for frequent travelers, college students and people on multiple medications. It is also quite useful for caregivers. With the amount of information available for storage, this app provides a user with all of the necessities for minor emergencies. 

But will Emergency Info save you in a dire situation?  Maybe.  Many paramedics and emergency responders check for identification as well as additional materials following accidents.  Despite the many advances in technology, would responders think to look for your iPhone and then search for the Emergency Info app?  Not yet. 

Overall, Emergency Info is a great everyday health app for standard questions at the doctor’s office. It helps you answer a pharmacist’s questions regarding current medications as well as provides a blood type if you donate often.  Users of Emergency Info who want to cover every base may still want to carry printed backup information to ease their medical anxiety.
