Emergency Medical ID on iPhone

This feature was added to Apples iOS 8 operating system, but it is not well known by the people that may require it, like healthcare providers in the pre-hospital setting.

The new feature is a digital "Medical ID," which can provide important personal health related information in the event of an emergency.

Even if the phone is locked, you can access the Medical ID from the locked screen and see the information the user has put on it, it can include medical conditions, medications, allergies and any other medical notes.
