Two weeks ago I launched Footsteps's first App, MMI-MyMedInfo. As I shared with you, I created the MMI after struggling with managing my mother's medical information during the end of her life (which involved multiple hospital and rehab visits). MMI is my real world response to coping with the mounds of information that is generated during a serious medical event.
Though the app was inspired by the situation with my mom, it's really a tool for the entire family. Since the release of the MMI, I have heard from multiple parents who now use it to manage the healthcare information of their children. The notification feature for Medications is particularly helpful. You can schedule an alert that reminds you that it is time to administer your child's medication. Notifications not only serve as helpful reminders but are great for managing multiple kids with different medications.
Additionally, the Allergies feature has been a big help to parents of children with different kinds of allergies. MMI allows you to segregate an allergy by type which, acts as a gentle reminder to include environmental allergens as well any medical or food substance that can cause an immediate hypersensitive response.
These are just two elements that are helping parents manage their children's healthcare information. To learn more about the app or download it, visit the iTunes store.
