Can my doctor update my MedFlash?
Yes, if they are willing, they can easily install the software from your device by clicking on the install folder and running "setup.exe" and if your doctor’s has access to the Internet, they can perform updates.
Can the information on MedFlash be accidentally overwritten?
The main file "MyMedData.txt" can be overwritten. It is a simple text file. MedFlash keeps the data in several locations, so if this happens, plug your MedFlash into your computer and click on "Load Information". This will display your last saved data. Then click on "Save Information" and the text file will be recreated. If you need assistance, just contact us and we will guide your through it.
No, in the newest version of MedFlash your information is stored on our secure database. Not only is this safer, you have access to information even if you don’t have your MedFlash with you at MyMedFlash.com.
Can I put my family’s information on the MedFlash?
Yes, there is a picture of a lock next to each field where you enter data. Click on this to lock or unlock the information. If any of your medical or lifestyle information is important for an emergency responder to know, it is best to leave it unlocked.
How does the ambulance service or hospital emergency room get information from my MedFlash?
There is a text file on the root directory called "MyMedData.txt". They use any text editor or any word processor to access this file and review your personal health record. Many municipalities’ police and emergency vehicles are equipped with laptop computers. They would plug in the MedFlash and your health and lifestyle information would be available to them. They will also be able to access this information through the web portal if your password is provided to them.
