About this app

Backpack Health – Your health information always on hand.

Sometimes health information can feel scattered and out of reach. Backpack Health wants to help you keep it all together, so that you can spend less time tracking it down and more time getting (and giving) the care and support you need.

Organize and manage your health details in the way that makes the most sense to you:
• Conditions, procedures, medications, allergies, complementary care, labs, and more – if it's important to your health journey, keep it in your Backpack
• Record your health info using a comprehensive dictionary of clinical and everyday terms – we give you lots of options to help you find what you're looking for
• Add photos, videos, audio, and files to your Backpack to complete the picture
• Manage emergency contacts for yourself and those you care for
• Manage contact info for current and past health care providers and link them to your health details
• Instantly translate your health info into multiple languages

Include the people you love:
• Add profiles for the ones you care for (as many as you want)
• Kids, aging parents, anyone whose info you need to have on hand, Backpack Health lets you keep it all in one place
• Invite others to co-manage your loved ones' profiles with you – you can collaborate to stay on top of their care

Share the information you need to with the ones who need it most:
• Use unique share cards to control what information you share with whom
• Share your specific Emergency info so that it's there when you need it
• Share the most up-to-date info with unique secure URLs
• Use a unique URL to keep emergency info on medical ID jewelry or in your phone’s Medical ID
• Add your files and notes to Share Cards

Wherever you go, Backpack Health makes it easy to carry the stuff that matters, and share it with those who need it.

Life a Little Differently
August 3, 2022
The app was INCREDIBLE while it lasted. Life-saving. But the app has been discontinued - it's here, yes, but there is no customer support and a bug that prevents you from adding anything from a condition to an allergy to a medicine, making the app useless now. Please, some genius out there pick up the ball, I'm begging. Make it paid, do whatever. This app's ability was too important to be lost. This was the only way I could continuously share my emergency medical info with family.

We’re sorry to hear you encountered this issue. In past year we've noticed a few occasions where our search was not working properly which prevents a user from adding a health entry. This has been fixed and we've been monitoring this.

Literally the only thing that would make this app perfect is a way to access info from your lockscreen like some other emergency contact apps I've tried. Otherwise, this app is wonderful, and everything I need to keep doctors informed about my very complex medical history, and give them reliable resources on my rare conditions.

I came to BPH after my former app ceased. I love having my [complicated] medical history available when needed! In fact, it became necessary after I had my lower jaw all but severed by a dog bite! We were in Podunk & outside my med coverage area - the information provided to the entire team working on me led to an infusion my blood required & work that led to an incredible recovery. If not for the info, I could have easily bled out b/c I do not clot. It also has made things easy w/new doctors.
