Do You Know About MyIHR?

MyIHR or My Interactive Health Record. It solves a lot of problems when it comes to having your medical information available in an emergency. It’s secure and best of all, there are no recurring fees!

Here’s a comment from an actual MyIHR user:

“About one month after receiving my medical ID bracelet charm, and inputting my information into the MyIHR portal, I suffered a bad fall at home. My spouse was out of the country working, and I was alone.

I was able to call 911 for transport to a local emergency room. The ambulance attendants were “thrilled” when they saw all of my medications and they deemed my case could be very complicated.  I was able to tell them to not worry about gathering them all up, to just look up MyIHR on their computer in the ambulance.

With the username and password on the charm (it’s very tiny engraving!), they were able to input all the information into their system and advised me that mine was the first case ever that they had seen such a great way for those of us with fragile health to receive appropriate care without subjecting us to possibly dangerous medications.

My record is now in their system, should an ambulance ever be dispatched to my home in the future. At the hospital, the ER team was very happy to be given the same computer access and updated my file easily, and completely. I can’t stress enough that this works, and works well, especially for people with multiple health conditions or multiple medications.

Thanks for the MyIHR service!” – Randy
