PHRs on Cell Phones?

July 13, 2007

According to a piece in Health Data Management, Capmed has purchased a company with this technology. Here is the pitch from ICE First: “ICE First is a web- and mobile phone-based software application that allows you to quickly and easily store and manage emergency medical information and contact numbers right on your mobile phone.” You can actually download the software from their website based on your wireless provide. Only a $10 fee with $5 per year to maintain data on their website. You can get a sticker for your phone indicating it has emergency information.

Cell phones make sense because of their pervasiveness in the market – this could be more popular that thumb drive PHRs or other devices. The only downside it the potential for losing your phone or running low on battery.
