ICE First™ is a nice little application for patients with cellphones to store basic medical records. From the Juke Systems, Inc., a Darien, CT based software maker:
ICE First, a new software application for mobile phones, harnesses and capitalizes on mobile technology to allow users to easily store medical, insurance and emergency data about themselves and dependents on their mobile phones, and to display that information whenever they need it. ICE First has taken a simple idea – loading In Case of Emergency or “ICE” contact information on a mobile phone – and developed a robust version for today’s technology rich mobile devices.
“We’ve taken a potentially life-saving idea, applied our proprietary technology, and developed mobile phone- and Web-based software called ICE First to store and automatically update emergency contact and medical information,” said Keith Buckley, president and CEO of Juke Systems Inc., the company that created ICE First(TM). “ICE First puts medical and emergency preparedness in the palm of your hand.”
ICE First provides a central storage area for medical information and emergency contacts that the mobile phone user can have with them at all times. Through ICEfirst.com, a password protected Web site, users can easily update personal information on a full-sized keyboard vs. inputting the data on their mobile device. The application provides an over-the-air updating system that synchronizes the handset application with a Web database allowing subscribers to securely upload information from their computers to their mobile devices. By using ICE First, emergency contact, medical and insurance information, as well as a list of prescriptions, allergies and preferred care givers will be readily available at the touch of a button on most mobile phones.
