The App is particularly useful when travelling as it also helps you communicate with people who do not speak the same language as you. It allows you to translate your medical and contact details into any of 19 different languages, thereby allowing you to communicate with local health professionals. This way you can avoid misunderstandings while being able to receive the correct treatment quickly. If you suffer from allergies you can use the mobile solution while dining out, to make sure you do not eat anything to which you may have an allergic reaction.
The information in the app can provide more details than what is on the card. If the cardholder has chosen to do so, the mobile solution can have additional contact people, medical history, uploaded documents like travel docs. X-rays, vaccination records, copy of your passport and more. By using the app, you can update your profile, translate medical phrases to various languages, add medical documents or order a new card.
