A Better ICE Pack – Meet ICEBlueButton


ICEBlueButton #1Imagine the worst.  An auto accident, a medical emergency, and you are either unconscious or unable to speak.  How could a first responder find  your medical history, know what drugs you’re taking, know who to contact? And how might that delay treatment that could save your life?  Or result in the wrong treatment that could cost your life?  Now, thanks to Humetrix, there is an app for that, called ICEBlueButton. The ICE part of it stands for “In Case of Emergency” and Blue Button is the name of a new national standard that allows patients easier access to their own medical records, along with the ability to share those records with physicians and their own designated caregivers or family members.
