How To Set Up Your Medical ID & ICE Contact On The iPhone 6

Did you know that your iPhone 6 can save your life?

And it’s not just iPhones but any kind of smartphone, like the Samsung Galaxy, Droid Incredible or Windows Phone.

The secret is letting your phone do the talking for you in an emergency.  And the way to do that, is with ICE.

What is ICE?

During Hurricane Katrina, so many people were injured & separated from their families, that emergency workers came up with the idea of putting an ICE – In Case Of Emergency – contact in their cell phones.  Now, hospitals worldwide check patient’s phones for their ICE contact, to locate their next of kin.   In fact we suggest that everyone should have 2 ICE contacts on his cell phone, just in case the first person is unavailable. 

And now, Apple has made putting an emergency contact on your iPhone 6, 6 plus and iOS 8 even easier, with their new Medical ID.  Medical ID is a part of the Apple Health App.  It not only gives you a place to put your emergency medical information, but it puts a link to that information right on the front of your phone, where it can be viewed by a hospital even if your phone is password locked.  

But there is one catch.  You still need to set up your ICE Contacts – the right way – to make sure that emergency personnel have all of the information they need to treat you with your medical needs in mind and to get the people you love to your bedside, quickly and easily. 

And by the way, if you need instructions for your iPhone 5 click here, or your Samsung Galaxy, click here.

Grab Your Phone & Let’s Get Started

Before you begin, you’ll need to decide who your ICE Contacts will be. 

The first one of course will be your spouse, partner, best friend or close relative.  Someone that you want there with you at the hospital or, if need be, making decisions on your behalf. 

But what if that person is also injured, or is out of town or forgot to charge their phone?  Why not choose one additional person to be an ICE Contact – someone very close to you, who you know will drop everything to race to your side and handle things until your significant other can be reached.

Let’s set up your first ICE Contact.

Touch the Contacts Icon on your iPhone to open up your Contacts.  Click on the plus sign + to add a new contact and touch the Name Field.  Don’t put the name of your contact in this field, only the word ICE.  If you have more than one ICE Contact, just name the first contact ICE1 and the second ICE2.  

Now touch the Company Name Field.  Here is where you put your contact’s name and his or her relationship to you.  For example, John Jones – Husband.  That way a doctor or nurse reading it, will know that this contact is your husband.  

Even if you already have a contact for this person in your phone, set up this ICE Contact separately.  That way you can put the information into it, that needs to be there, along with a special graphic, so that emergency personnel will know that these people are your chosen ICE Contacts, without having to guess. 

There’s a very important reason that we’re setting it up this way, but we’ll get to that in a moment.

Time To Make Your iPhone Do Some Heavy Lifting…

Here’s the basic information you need to include:

♦  Your emergency contact’s main phone number, mobile number and work number.

♦  Email Address & IM, Twitter or Facebook address (these are vital in case you need to send that contact an emergency message or quick update).

♦  Your contact’s schedule if there are specific days that he or she is different locations.

♦  Be sure to include every piece of information you can.   Why?  When people are injured in a regional emergency, like a tornado or an earthquake, not every type of communication will be working.  For instance, after the Japan earthquake, many people were able to reach each other via Twitter or Facebook even though their landlines and Wi-Fi weren’t working.

Like most smartphones, your iPhone lets you change, add or create fields inside the contact, so that you can customize it as much as you like.  In general, all you need to do is touch and hold the name of the field that you want to change.  This will bring up a menu of alternate field names to choose from, including the option to Create A Field and add whatever you need.

Now For Your Medical ID

On your home screen click on the Health App – it’s the one with the heart on it.  This will take you to the Dashboard page of the Health App.  On the bottom right of the screen, you’ll see the Medical ID icon.  Click on it.  

And you’ll be taken to the Medical ID screen.  Click on the red link that says Create Medical ID. 

The most important part of the Medical ID screen is at the top.  It’s the On/Off Switch that shows a link to your emergency information on the home screen of your phone even when it’s password-locked.  Before you do anything else, switch this to the ON position.  It will turn green like the graphic below. 

By the way, none of the information in your Medical ID is shared with any of the other apps on your phone.

iphone6graphic4

Enter All Of Your Information 

Put all the information you possibly can into your Medical ID.  

As you can see it already has fields for your birthdate, medical conditions, allergies, current medications and other information.  There are two sections that you need to pay special attention to – Medical Notes and Add Emergency Contact. 

After you finish filling in the regular fields, use the Notes Section to list anything that didn’t fit into them, like the names and phone numbers of your physicians and healthcare providers and contact information for your Insurance Company.  Just don’t put any sensitive personal information into your Medical ID like your social security number, insurance member ID number or financial information.   

You can also place a link to your Medical History Form in the Notes Section to give emergency personnel to quick access to your medical history until your emergency contact arrives at the hospital. 

iphone6graphic5

Add Your Emergency Contact 

When you click on Medical ID’s Add Emergency Contact button, it will show you a list of your contacts, so you can choose the people you’d like to add to your Medical ID.  That’s why we had you set up your ICE Contacts first.  

Go ahead and click on the button and choose your first ICE Contact.  You can also add a relationship to the contact to let emergency personnel whether the contact is a spouse, parent or a friend.  

If you have additional ICE Contacts (yes we are trying to hammer this point home!) then click on the Add Emergency Contact field again to add as many additional people as you would like.

iphone6graphic6

What About Your Medical History? 

Need more than just a few lines to communicate your medical history? Then create a medical history form and store it to a password protected online folder & place a link to the form into the Notes Section of your Medical ID. This way a doctor can access your, your spouse’s or your kids basic medical history, while you’re  en route to the hospital.   Oh and if you don’t have a form, just download ours by clicking on the link above.

 

By the way, don’t forget to make emergency cards for your family too.  Download them here, and tuck them into their wallets with their ID, just in case their mobile phones  can’t be accessed after an accident or regional emergency.

Let’s Make Sure No One Misses It!

Make your ICE contacts stand out by using the Add Photo function to upload a graphic like this one.

You can either make your own graphic or we have free ones you can use by downloading our free ICE My Phone Kit.

What About The Rest of The Family?

Every family has one person who keeps everyone else organized.  And since you’re reading this post, something tells me it’s probably you! 

If that’s the case, it’s up to you to ensure every member of your household not only has ICE Contacts set up on his or her phone, but that everyone’s phone contains all of the contact information for every other family member.  That way you’ll be able to get in touch with each other as quickly as possible in an emergency.

And don’t forget that you can always put an ICE Contact in your family’s iPod Touches or other devices as well.  Just because you don’t have a phone with you while you’re running doesn’t mean you can’t stay safe!

What If Your Phone Is Password Locked?

With Medical ID, there are now two ways for emergency personnel to grab your ICE Contact information even if your iPhone is password locked. 

The first?  Now that you turned your Medical ID on, an emergency link to it now appears on the lock screen/home screen of your phone.   All a hospital has to do is click on that Emergency link, which will open your Health App and Medical ID.  The emergency link will also allow you to make an emergency call without having to stop to unlock your phone first.   

One other way that emergency personnel can locate your ICE Contact is with a little help from Siri. 

Remember we had you put nothing but the word ICE in the Name field of your ICE Contact?  All an Emergency Room has to do is Press and Hold Down the Main Home Key on your phone to access Siri and then say, “Contacts ICE”.   Siri will then display all the information you have saved as ICE.  

If you place any other words in the name field besides ICE, your phone will sort it differently and Siri won’t recognize the contact as ICE. 

And with Medical ID, emergency personnel can also press and hold down the Home Key, then say to Siri, “Health,” which will open the Health App so that they can view your Medical ID.  

Remember, if someone is looking for your ICE Contact, you may be unconscious and unable to communicate medical information for yourself.   In fact, if you do tend to password lock your phone, you should definitely put vital medical information like allergies or chronic illnesses into the Notes Section of your Medical ID as well, just in case the ICE contact is the only contact on your phone that medical personnel can access.

And if you’re a healthcare professional, remember these instructions the next time you encounter an unconscious patient with a locked iPhone.  Press and hold down the main home key to access Siri and say “Contacts ICE”.  You never know.  That one little question might just uncover all of the information you need to save their life!

Turn Your Phone Into A Mobile Command Center

While you’re at it, you can even turn your phone into a Mobile Command Center.  Just store copies of your family’s medical history forms, emergency action plans, checklists and Evacuation Plan, right on your phone  and those of each member of your immediate family.  

And while you have them, don’t forget to put ICE Contacts on their phones as well, including along with each other’s contact information.    That way you can all get in touch with each other quickly in an emergency.   And don’t forget to download our free ICE My Phone Kit and follow the instructions to set up your family’s ICE Contacts, no matter what phone they have.

How To Use An ICE Contact On A Password Protected iPhone

There’s one question about ICE Contacts that we get from iPhone users all the time.  When you think about it, it’s pretty important so we decided to take care of it in its own blog post.  

What is it?

Okay I Have An ICE Contact, But What Happens If I Password Protect My iPhone?

Good question.  

After all, iCE contacts are great – as long as emergency personnel can actually SEE your iCE information.  But what if you lock your iPhone with a password? 

Believe it or not, in many cities emergency workers aren’t allowed to break into a password protected mobile phone, even in an emergency.  Which means that having an iCE contact on a password protected phone is useless, right?  

Wrong!

As long as you set up your iCE contact correctly, all an emergency worker has to do is ask Siri to retrieve it for them!

And THAT is why we suggest that you put nothing but the word iCE in the Name field of your iCE Contact.   Then put the contact’s name in the Company Name field instead.  If you don’t already have an ICE Contact on your iPhone, be sure to read the blog post.

Even when your iPhone is password locked, all you have to do is Press and Hold Down the Main Home Key on your phone to access Siri.  Then say to Siri, “Contacts ICE”.   Siri will then display all the information you have saved as iCE.  If you place any other words in the name field besides iCE, your phone will sort it differently and Siri won’t recognize the contact as iCE.

Remember, if someone is looking for your iCE Contact, you may be unconscious and unable to communicate medical information for yourself.   In fact, if you do tend to password lock your phone, you should definitely put vital medical information like allergies or chronic illnesses into the Notes Section of your contact as well, just in case the iCE contact is the only contact on your phone that medical personnel can access.

Take a look at the graphic below or at the video at the beginning of this post, to see what happens when you ask Siri for your iCE Contact.

And if you’re a healthcare professional, remember these instructions the next time you encounter an unconscious patient with a locked iPhone.  Press and hold down the main home key to access Siri and say “Contacts ICE”.  You never know.  That one little question might just uncover all of the information you need to save a life!

iphonecontactsiri

What If Siri Won’t Bring Up That Contact When Your Phone Is Password Locked?

On a few iPhones, depending on the model and operating system, Siri won’t bring up any contacts when your phone is locked.  The best time to find out if this is true for your phone, is now – before someone needs to find your iCE Contact!  All you have to do is set up your contact, lock your phone and ask Siri for the contact. 

If Siri doesn’t locate the contact, simply put your iCE Contact information on your lock screen as a graphic.  Problem solved!

How To Fill Out Your Family’s Emergency Contact Cards

In the days after 9/11, two thousand, one hundred children were left stranded in daycare.

Why?

Because their parents hadn’t filled out one of the fields on their daycare emergency contact cards.

“Who should we contact if you are not able to pick up your child?”

How could something so basic, strand two thousand children on one of the scariest days in American history?

Fear.

The inability or refusal to take two minutes to think through what might happen, if they and their spouse were unable to reach their child.  The ridiculous thing is, it doesn’t even have to take a real emergency for this to happen.  You could be stuck on the freeway, or trapped in an airplane you were certain would arrive on time.

So take a few moments to think about it.  And please, please don’t just jot down the first name that pops into your head!

Imagine that you have an accident or are in the middle of a transportation nightmare and you and your spouse are unable to pick up your child from school one afternoon.  Now imagine that you can’t get to her for two or three days.  Who would you want taking care of her?

Choosing Your Emergency Contacts

You need someone who knows your child extremely well.  Someone who would be able to calm her down and would have the energy to care for her.  Someone who knows what she likes and dislikes.  And, in case of extreme emergency like September 11th, it would really help to have someone with the ability, brains and fortitude to help locate you or your spouse, if overburdened emergency personnel weren’t able to help.

That’s the kind of thought you need to put into emergency planning, especially where your children are concerned.

Medical History

Now what about your child’s medical history?  Some schools or day care centers don’t even provide a card for medical history, or the one they provide might be so sparse that it would be useless in a true medical emergency.  Don’t forget that you can simply create your own medical history card and see that it’s stored with your child’s records.  That way you can be sure that the information you would want emergency personnel to have in an emergency, will be right at their fingertips.

If you have already completed the section on Medical Information, you already have Medical History Forms for you and your children.  So grab their forms and let’s see how you did with them.

Did you include a current list of chronic conditions, allergies, medications and vitamins along with the dosage?  A list of all of your child’s health providers including specialists, dentists and other professionals who see your child on a regular basis?

Did you jot down things that a nurse or physician might need to know to help calm your child down while treating her, until you’re able to be at the hospital?   Your child’s likes and dislikes, favorite foods or toys or anything else that might help.   No matter how old your child is, kids tend to regress a bit when they’re hurting or frightened, so the information you provide here can go a long way towards keeping them calm and helping the medical team give them the treatment they need until you arrive at the hospital.

Take the emergency contact card from your child’s school or daycare provider and fill it in with your carefully-chosen emergency contacts as well as the information from the medical information form.  Like we said, if there’s not enough room to detail important information, just ask the school to store the medical information form you created earlier along with the emergency card.  And be sure to store the medical information form, or a link to it, in your smartphone in case you need to refer to it in an emergency.

Your Own Emergency Contact Card 

Just because you and your spouse are adults doesn’t mean that you don’t need to take your own emergency cards seriously.  Do we have to remind you about all the runners who have been rushed to the hospital in the middle of a 10K without a scrap of medical information?  Didn’t think so!

The moment you begin a job, register for school or run a marathon, you’re going to have to fill out your own card.  The best way to do it?  Exactly like you did for your kids.

Before you jot down your spouse and no one else as an emergency contact, take some time to think of another person or two, who you would want to be notified in an emergency.  Your spouse might be out of town, stuck with a dead cell phone or worse might be involved in the same emergency.

If that’s the case who would you want to be there with you?  Who would you trust to make decisions for you?  To take care of your children if need be, or keep things going until your spouse or other relatives arrive?

And take the same care with your medical history as you did with your children’s.  If there isn’t enough room on the contact form for allergies, medications or other vital information, attach the medical information form — if you don’t have one check out this post – or if you’re not comfortable with that, attach an additional page of information to make sure your emergency form would actually help in an emergency!

Taking five minutes now to turn your emergency contact card into a truly valuable document, could be one of the smartest things you’ve ever done.

ICE My Phone – The Launch

If you’ve been reading our blog for any length of time, you’ve probably noticed that we talk about ICEing your phone.

Have you ever wondered why?

One simple reason.  Because everyone is always asking us how to put an ICE Contact on their phone!

They know they need one, they know they want one, but they’re not quite sure how to get it or what to put in it once they do it.

That’s why we’re launching #ICEMyPhone.  Our mission is to get the word out to everyone in the US and the UK about how easy it is to put an ICE Contact on their cell phones, iPods and other electronic devices.

What is an iCE Contact?

During the London Bombings and Hurricane Katrina, so many people were injured and separated from their families that a London paramedic named Bob Brotchie came up with the idea of telling people to put an iCE – In Case of Emergency – contact on their cell phones.   Now, hospitals worldwide, check patient’s phones for their iCE contact, to locate their next of kin.

Why is it important to have one?

The most important reason every member of your family should have an ICE Contact on his or her phone, is because you can’t be everywhere, all the time.

There’s always one person in every family who keeps everyone else going.  The person who can recite every illness and prescription drug his or her kids, spouse and dogs have ever had.  Usually it’s the wife, but you never know!

But when your family is at work, or school or at different activities all over town there’s NO way that you can be with them every second of every day.  But you CAN tuck all of that information into an ICE Contact on their cell phone, so a doctor or an emergency room can use it to take care of them, until you get there.

Every year more than one million people enter the ER unconscious or unable to give the hospital their vital information.  On average it takes hospitals over 6 hours to find a patient’s vital information, and that’s if they have the patient’s name.

ICE My Phone Kit and Graphic

To get people excited about iCEing their phone, we’re not only starting the #ICEMyPhone Campaign, but we’re asking well-known people like Donna Miller of Blog Talk Radio’s Your Preparation Station, to design an original iCE Contact Graphic for their fans, followers and listeners.

Just this week I had the pleasure of doing an interview on Donna’s show Surviving on Shoestrings to kick off the #ICEMyPhone Campaign.  Here is the first half of that interview.

Or you can listen to it from her show page at this link.

And if you’d like to get our ICE My Phone Kit for FREE, click on the graphic below.   The ICE My Phone Kit is filled with How-To instructions on how to ICE your iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, Android Phones and iPod Touch along with our one-of-a-kind ICE Contact Graphics.

Apple Announces iPhone 6 and the Apple Watch!

Great news from Apple!  Looks like iPhone 6, iOS 8 and the new Apple Watch are on their way.  The two new iPhone 6 models will be larger than the iPhone 5 and 5S — so that’s already great news.  And the Watch, looks amazing.

I hear that there may be a dedicated ICE Contact on the new phones — hope so — and as soon as we get details on it we’ll let you know.  And of course as soon as we have a new how-to sheet for putting an ICE Contact on the iPhone 6, we’ll post it, tweet it, Facebook it and YouTube it ASAP.
