At 1Password, we’ve always worked hard to help you secure your digital life. You can use 1Password to safely store logins, passwords, credit cards, email addresses, and other identity information.
It’s also a great place to keep copies of important documents – everything from birth certificates to real estate records – the list is endless.
And today, that list got a little bit longer with the addition of a brand new item type with distinct fields to help you store and track health-related information. Introducing the Medical Record, available to all 1Password subscribers.
Add a title, date, practitioner’s name, and anything else you want to save. We’ve included some default data suggestions and, like other 1Password item types, you can add custom fields and remove others as you see fit. It’s all incredibly flexible and practical – and that was the goal.
New features and item types aren’t born out of think-tank brainstorm sessions in far-away offices. We listen to our customers and then build software to help make their lives a little simpler. We believe this human approach changes the way our software is designed. And the new Medical Record is no exception.
Our Customer Support team received countless requests for a specific place in 1Password to keep COVID-19 vaccination information. We liked the concept, but didn’t want to stop there. We set out to create a new item type that was as versatile and accessible as possible. We want you to be able to pull out your phone during a doctor’s visit, quickly and easily search, and find your vaccination record, or any other medical information you’ve saved.
We want you to be able to share certain details about your health (if you’re comfortable sharing them) with family members or loved ones, in the event of an emergency.
We want to be there, to help make things a little easier right now, the best way we know how. It’s been a difficult fourteen-plus months, but there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.
