Family Medical iphone App Introduced at AARP’s Orlando@50+(October 04, 2010)
Orlando, FL, October 04, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Attendees at AARP’s annual expo and event Orlando@50+ will be the first to access the iphone app mihealth stats™ that stores patient information for every family member. “This is an invaluable tool for geographically dispersed families,” says New York attorney and developer of the app Brenda L. Barnes. “It allows a son in New York to quickly access the name of his mother’s doctor in Florida or a daughter in Los Angeles to email a list of all of her father’s medications to ER staff in Chicago.” mihealth stats™ is available is for sale in the apple itunes store Monday, October 3, 2010. It sells for $4.99.
Other accessible information includes diagnosed conditions, medical history, health alerts, and past surgeries. Using iphone existing features, families can include a recent photo of each patient, get directions to hospitals, dial emergency contacts, and update data. It’s password-protected to keep private medical information away from snoopers.
The app is based on the mihealth stats™ worksheet in Barnes’ book Esther Has a Living Will and Other Fairy Tales for Adult Children (splash’em LLC, ISBN 978-0-9826123-0-9, $35.00). The book provides current information as to the role of the adult child in health care delivery for aging parents and highlights new federally-mandated resources and staff a medical facility must provide. “Hospitalization is a scary topic, but hospitalization without preparation is scarier,” cautions Barnes.
Introducing mihealth stats™ now is timely because this is the year that AARP’s national event goes digital. Orlando@50+ draws 25,000 people to Orlando and the AARP Digital Experience, a virtual event, expands the reach of the three-day extravaganza. Many of the information sessions, celebrity speakers, and expert presentations will be streamed live or on-demand for six months for virtual attendees.
The iphone app mihealth stats™ was designed by MacFarlane Engel & Associates, New Haven CT.
mihealth stats™ is available for download from the itunes app store. Esther Has a Living Will and Other Fairy Tales for Adult Children is available at amazon.com, bn.com, and indiebound.org.
