    Having an ICE (In Case of Emergency) listing on your phone can help First Responders help you faster. Our new app stores your contact information, conditions, medications, allergies and other important info.


    About the App

    In the time you've had your smartphone, you may have noticed a few things:

    • A locked phone with a passcode does not allow users to access any information, even in case of an emergency.
    • Others that may need to access your phone in an emergency may not know how to view contacts, even if they are able to slide and unlock your phone.

    This is how Einstein Healthcare ICE can help. Free to download, it easily stores emergency contacts in your phone so others can know who to call In Case of Emergency (ICE). It also gathers important health-related information about the phone's owner such as medical conditions, medications and allergies.

    Functional even on a locked phone

    Medical personnel are trained to look for a cell phone and find ICE contacts if the situation calls for it. Typically, a locked phone that requires a passcode to access means they will not know who to call.

    With Einstein's ICE App, your key emergency contact person's name and phone number are displayed as a banner on your phone's wallpaper. Medical personnel will know who to call even if your phone requires a passcode.

    Two Emergency Contact slots

    There are slots ready for you to fill in with the names and phone numbers of your primary and secondary contacts. A photo of each can also appear next to the information.

    As you fill in the contact information, you will also be given the option to display the name and phone number as a banner on your phone's wallpaper.

    Declare your medical conditions

    Medical personnel may need to know a bit more about you after absorbing your ICE contact information. Upon loading up the app, they'll see the following message: “The owner of this phone has the following conditions:”

    From arthritis to vertigo, medical personnel will be aware of any conditions you have.

    Declare your medications, display map to Einstein facilities

    Much like your medical conditions, your medications could be vital information to medical personnel. Find the medications you're taking from the extensive list on Einstein's ICE App.

    Finally, a map to Einstein facilities will be displayed based on your phone's current location.
