Apple iPhone and Apple Watch Medical ID for Critical Medical Information

Give emergency medical responders quick access to your emergency medical information. If you didn’t know, you can load your critical medical information into the Apple Health App on an iPhone. If you have a medical emergency or are in an accident, medical response teams can quickly access your critical medical information. They can do this even if your watch or iPhone are locked.

Open the Apple Health App and click on your profile picture in the top right corner. Select Medical ID and then Edit on the top right. Make sure the emergency contact information in entered into the respective fields so the 1st responders and hospital doctors will have access to your Medical ID. Edit and fill in these fields:

  • Medical Conditions
  • Medical Notes
  • Allergies and Reactions
  • Medications
  • Add Blood Type
  • Add Organ Donor Information
  • Your Personal Information, Height, Weight, etc
  • Emergency Contact

Turn on Emergency Access

There are two sliders you will need to turn on so that your information is available:
