In the event of an emergency, are you prepared? With ICECare by Corsoft Corporation, users can now have an all-in-one guide right on their portable device, allowing them to not only keep a protected record of their critical medical data, but also an educational training tool that will ensure them some peace of mind if caught up in a disaster.
As a comprehensive emergency preparedness tool, ICECare provides users with the necessities to survive and recover from any emergency or disaster situation. Make sure you have all your vital medical information available for emergency crews just in case, learn first aid, and plot out you family’s emergency plans all with this single, intuitive and useful application.
Users will begin by creating an account with their basic information. A confirmation code will be sent to the email address you provide in order to finalize your setup and protect your privacy. As you continue with the Setup Wizard, you will begin to expand upon your profile, inputting information that can only make the app live up to its fullest potential. However, all information entered is optional and can be updated at any time using the Edit Settings button under the Tools tab. (Note: You settings cannot be changed without your password, so be sure to remember what you enter during setup!)
As you proceed, you will begin to enter more specific information, such as whether you use a hearing aid or contact lenses. Also, specify if you’re an organ donor, enter your insurance provider and reference number, upload a photo of yourself, and even enter your address and daytime and evening phone numbers. Include your blood type, blood pressure, describe any chronic conditions you may have, such as diabetes and asthma, list your allergies and any medications you currently take, plot out your health history and enter any and all possible emergency contacts.
By having all this information at hand, emergency medical technicians and doctors will have all they need to know right at their fingertips in case you are ever knocked unconscious or become incoherent. However, users will most definitely want to order their ICECare sticker as soon as possible. This sticker, which easily adheres to the back of your device, provides a unique identification code that allows medical staff to access all your vital information even if your phone is inoperable or locked. They will only be able to access the information you have authorized, which can also be found on the ICECare.net website if necessary. In fact, this ability to access your information from the Internet also includes the added benefit of locking or deleting your information remotely if your device is ever stolen.
Once you have finished entering your information, the Emergency tab will display links to your vital health history, while the Contacts tab will contain you Essential Numbers. The Tools tab brings users to the educational tools and settings buttons, which teach users important basics, such as first aid training, disaster recovery procedures and so much more. Never have I ever seen one application cater to preserving your well being as much as ICECare does, but one can tell they truly care, for they do not put a price on this application, as one cannot put a price on saving a life.
