The latest additions (and improvement) to the PHR4us weblog are the 1.0 [beta] version of ICEmaker and the new notice, Put ICE on it!, a link to two new pages imploring folks to put ICE (In Case of Emergency) information on their iOS or Android mobile devices.
ICEmaker is a free guide and tool for easily organizing, encrypting, accessing, and extracting sensitive, personal information on a small USB flash drive. The USB flash drive can be attached a keychain, carried everywhere, and inserted in laptop or desktop computers for updating and accessing personal health records (PHR) and other information needed In Case of Emergency (ICE). ICEmaker replaces TruCrypt, offering a much more portable approach to creating, maintaining, and accessing encrypted, password-protected personal health information and other ICE information of USB flash drives. ICEmaker may be used on Macintosh, Windows, and Linux platforms.
Put ICE on it!
Also added to PHR4us are two new pages about putting ICE on your iOS or Android mobile devices. The first page, Put ICE on it!, is an introduction to ICE with links to instructions and apps for your iPhone, iPad, or other mobile device. The link, Put ICE on it!, will remain under Notices on the sidebar. The second page, ICEBlueButton, provides more information about this new, free app and a link to its website.
Put Your ICE Information on the Internet
You can also create a free website with your ICE information with different pages for health care providers, family, and friends. Secure each ICE page with a unique password., then share the link and passwords with those who should have access. Also, put the link (and password for ICE – Healthcare) on your ICE wallet card, stickers, etc. For an example, see a prototype template at http://petstech.wix.com/in-case-of-emergency.
