If you live in the “cloud”, there will come a moment when you need your feet planted firmly on solid ground. Practice Today (Mobile) will serve as your lifeline.
Practice Today (Mobile) will store personal data on your cell phone in an easy-to-use format so you can send selected data to anyone with a DestinationID at a moment’s notice.

Much like exercise and body fat.
Practice Today (Mobile) works in concert with Practice Today (Pro & Personal).

We strongly suggest that you read the following scenarios to better appreciate the utility of this mobile app.
Consider the following scenario.
You are standing in an Emergency Room with your injured child. The triage nurse hands you a clipboard requesting medical information, as your injured child is being wheeled away.
A clipboard. YES, you are handed a clipboard while your screaming child is being taken away behind closed doors with total strangers.
Instantly, you reach into your back pocket for your cell phone. You open Practice Today (Mobile) with your finger scan.
You select “Medical Info”, then the “Detailed” medical record for your injured child. (Yes, you are an insightful parent, and you have placed your child’s medical record on YOUR cell phone anticipating this very moment.)
You notice a sign on the wall that displays the DestinationID for the triage station. You click “SEND”, enter the DestinationID, and then “Confirm”.
You have just sent your child’s complete medical record to the triage station. The attendant simply clicks VIEW on her workstation, and everything she needs is at her fingertips.
This took a total of ten seconds.
Let’s examine what just happened. Your injured child is no longer a stranger to the medical staff. They have everything they need to know about your child, you, and your insurance. You can now go comfort your child.
Let’s look at what you just sent to the triage station’s DestinationID.
They know your details (name, address, phone number, employer etc.). They know your insurance details (company, subscriber ID#). They even have an image of your insurance cards. They know your child’s complete medical history, including allergies, medications, diagnoses. They know your Primary Care Physician details, and the name of every other physician that has cared for your child since the beginning of time. They know the last time your child had an MRI. The list goes on and on, because you took the time to prepare for this moment.
If that medical record had been stored in the “cloud”, instead of on your cell phone in your back pocket, then how many angels would you have had to rely upon? The WiFi angel, who is occasionally temperamental. The cloud gateway angel. The username angel. The password angel. The reset-password angel, because the password angel was on vacation. Even the clipboard ink pen angel. Do you see the point? You need all these angels to line-up to get your “cloud” medical record to the triage nurse.
With Practice Today (Mobile) on your cell phone, “back pocket” beats the “cloud” hands down.
Let’s consider another scenario.
It is Kindergarten Registration Day! You have been waiting for this day for five years. It has finally arrived, and you are prepared!
You are standing in line with your reluctant child in tow. All you need is a glance at the registration DestinationID when you reach the front of the line.
It’s your turn. You enter the DestinationID, click “Send”, and then “Confirm”.
The registrar takes a moment to review your documents on her computer. She smiles with approval. Registration is now complete, and it took a total of ten seconds with Practice Today (Mobile).
Let’s look at what you sent to the registrar.
They have electronic copies of all required documents, and forms. Certified Birth Certificate, Social Security Card, Immunization Records, previous nursery school info, Health Check from the doctor, proof of residency. The list goes on and on. You have been meticulous in gathering all vital information for your family over the years with Practice Today (Personal), and you have uploaded selected info to your Practice Today (Mobile) app for this very moment.
As you walk back past the other parents standing in line holding folders bulging with papers, you notice the frightful looks on their faces. Your smile of confidence signals you were electronically prepared with Practice Today (Mobile),
Let’s consider another scenario.
You are an elementary school teacher who is responsible for twenty-five youthful begins. You have an upcoming field trip. Using Practice Today (Personal), you batch-upload a summary for every student to your cell phone. These summaries were prepared by the parent/guardian with Practice Today (Personal) and forwarded to your DestinationID. The summaries include all pertinent data – parental info, Medical Release forms, emergency cell numbers, student allergies. The list goes on and on.
Practice Today (Mobile) manages every piece of emergency data, about every student in your charge. That data is at the tip of your finger when you need it.
When little Johnny falls down a flight of stairs, you are ten seconds and four finger taps away from speaking with his parent on your cell phone. And, you are ten seconds and four finger taps away from providing the EMT with Johnny’s Medical Release and medical data. You were electronically prepared with Practice Today (Mobile).
Let’s consider one last scenario.
You are strolling down Main Street in your small, quaint town in search of your afternoon latte. At that very moment, a shopkeeper places a “help wanted” sign in his window. The stark black and white sign jogs a faint memory. Just this morning, your mother reminded you that you needed a job, any job. Her persistence was noticeable. She even went so far as to upload your resume and employment history, along with references, to your Practice Today (Mobile) app.
You approach the shopkeeper. You smile and introduce yourself. You ask if you could forward your resume to his DestinationID. The shopkeeper is taken aback by your affable manner and is thoroughly impressed with the employment history you pulled out of your back pocket at a moments notice.
You get the job. You were electronically prepared with Practice Today (Mobile).
Practice Today (Mobile) places the digital YOU (or someone in your charge) at the tip of your finger at a moment’s notice. If you need a medical record, an employment history, an academic transcript, financial data, or just simple contact information, it’s right there on your cell phone, under lock and key.
