Discussion Summary

Explorer Rich tells the group about the function of the Apple medical app called Medical ID, which operates from the lock screen and allows quick access by responders to important medical information in an emergency.

Advance medical directives, as well, can be put on a flash drive or other storage device to make them portable and available when traveling. The group's chief question about this kind of record storage is whether it really will be readily found in an emergency.
