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, genetic results, 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 contact info for current and past healthcare 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 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

Contribute and make a positive impact for others on their health journey:
• Join our communities by finding your foundation, advocacy, or research group
• Contribute your data to ongoing research efforts – this is only with your consent and your info is always de-identified, meaning, no one can link this back to you
• Access resources and Share Card content relevant to your community

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

What’s New

Version 5.7.8074

The way you organize and share your health info just got better.

Health Info Comments (new): Before, the notes you wrote on specific health entries were added to one big list in your Backpack. That also meant they were bunched together at the bottom of your Share Cards, independent from the health info they were about. Now the comments you write will stay where they belong – with their health entries.

Backpack Notes (improved): Things are much more organized now that Backpack Notes have their own pocket. The standalone notes you write will be the only ones listed, without any attached comments without context in the mix.
