The SOS QR app will help you be prepared and stay safe during an emergency, either at home or when traveling, with: a one-touch SOS and OK buttons that alert your emergency contacts with your GPS location, an emergency record attached to a personal QR code that lets emergency responders view your critical health information in their own language.


SOS QR allows you to create emergency records for multiple profiles, with easy entry of emergency medical and contact information. SOS QR creates two versions of the emergency record for each profile: (1) a private one accessed from the SOS QR app itself, for you to edit or share in person (eg, in an emergency room), and which has all detailed information viewable; and (2) a public, de-identified online version published to a secure Humetrix SOS QR server so that it is available to emergency responders who scan the record’s QR code when you are incapacitated and cannot open your phone. By default, the public version of the emergency record is de-identified so that information which could identify you – such as Last Name or Date of Birth – do not appear in the record. You can show any of the hidden fields so that they do appear in the public version of the record.

Emergency records include different categories-of-information for you to use as needed: Personal Details, Spoken Languages, Emergency Contacts, Authorized Representative, Primary Physician, Insurance Details, Allergies, Immunizations, Medical Conditions, Medications, Other Health Info, Implanted Devices, and Special Needs. Enter pertinent information in each category for your emergency record. You should include any vital information in an emergency situation like a life-threatening allergy so that emergency medical personnel will know about it. It is important to fill out the Emergency Contacts section with the name and contact information of the person(s) you want to be directly alerted in case of an emergency. You can add as many emergency contacts as you like for a given Profile.

Some fields in a few of the categories are masked so that the public version of the record is de-identified. To unmask any of these fields, simply tap the red-shield icon next to the field.


As you enter a common chronic medical condition (e.g. asthma or hypertension), SOS QR will automatically let you know of the recommended quality-of-care guideline for this condition, so that you know about the standard of care for each condition, and can discuss it with your physician.


A wallet card that includes your QR code, retrieval PIN code, and your profile photo can be printed from within the application if you have a WIFI printer.


In an emergency, emergency personnel can scan the QR code with any QR code scanner to see your pertinent health information. When the QR code is scanned, SOS QR automatically sends an email to your listed contacts, with a map of the emergency location.


When your QR code is access while on travel, SOS QR provides for a translation of your record (including medical conditions and medications)​ so that emergency responders view your records in their language. Languages supported by SOS QR include: English US and English UK, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Mandarin Chinese.

Useful and elegant

Wonderful app that we definitely use in our family for some extra piece of mind. I like how much (or little) info we can put into an emergency record. Thumbs up!
