The SOS QR app will help you be prepared and stay safe during an emergency, either at home or when traveling around the world, with: a one-touch SOS and OK buttons that alert your emergency contacts with your GPS location, an emergency record attached to a personal QR code that lets emergency responders quickly view your critical health information in their own language.
SOS QR allows you to create emergency records for multiple profiles, with easy entry of emergency medical and contact information. SOS QR creates two versions of the emergency record for each profile created: (1) a private one accessed from the SOS QR app itself, for you to edit or share the record in person (for example, in an emergency room), and which has all the detailed record’s information available; and (2) a public, de-identified online version published to a secure Humetrix SOS QR server so that it is available to emergency responders who scan the record’s QR code when you are incapacitated and cannot open your phone. By default, the public version of the emergency record is de-identified so that information which could identify you – such as Last Name or Date of Birth – do not appear in the record. You can show any of the hidden fields so that they do appear in the public version of the record.
Emergency records include different categories-of-information for you to use as needed: Personal Details, Spoken Languages, Emergency Contacts, Authorized Representative, Primary Physician, Insurance Details, Allergies, Immunizations, Medical Conditions, Medications, Other Health Info, Implanted Devices, and Special Needs. Enter pertinent information in each category for your emergency record. Also, it is very important to fill out the Emergency Contacts section with the name and contact information of the person(s) you want to be directly alerted in case of an emergency. You can add as many emergency contacts as you like for a given Profile.
Some fields in a few of the categories are masked so that the public version of the record is de-identified. To unmask any of these fields, simply tap the red-shield icon next to the field.
MEDICAL CONDITION QUALITY OF CARE GUIDELINE NOTIFICATIONS
As you enter a common chronic medical condition (e.g., asthma or hypertension), SOS QR will automatically let you know of the recommended quality-of-care guideline for this condition, so that you know about the standard of care for this particular condition, and can discuss it with your physician.
A wallet card that includes your QR code, retrieval PIN code, and your profile photo can be printed from within the application if you have a WIFI networked printer.
QR CODE SCANNING FOR EMERGENCY RECORD ACCESS
In an emergency situation, emergency personnel can scan your QR code with any QR code scanner to see your pertinent health information. When the QR code is scanned, SOS QR automatically sends an email to your listed contacts, with a map with the location of the emergency.
AUTOMATED RECORD TRANSLATION FOR USE ON TRAVEL
When your QR code is accessed while on travel, SOS QR provides for an automatic translation of your record (including medical conditions and medications) so that emergency responders view your records in their own language. Languages supported by SOS QR include at this time: English US and English UK, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Mandarin Chinese.
