Apple and Donate Life America released a new iOS 10 Health App for iPhones that greatly simplifies the donor registration process.
The new app allows users to register their decision to be an organ, eye and tissue donor directly in the Medical ID tab within the iPhone Health App. In addition to the simple signup process that directly adds registrations to the National Donate Life Registry, the app also enables donors to carry their decision with them wherever they go. If you have already registered through DonateLifeSC.org and carry the red heart symbol on your South Carolina DMV state ID or driver license…you’re all set. No need to register on the iPhone, as you’re already on the South Carolina Donate Life Registry. If you do decide to register on your iPhone, you’ll be added to the National Donate Life Registry which is checked, along with the Donate Life South Carolina Registry, by organ and tissue recovery personnel in South Carolina. Whether you are registered on the South Carolina and/or national registry, your wish to help save a life will be honored.
