MyBloodWorks is a virtual medical secretary and database tracks vitals and blood levels, stores emergency contact information, keeps track of pills and medications, tracks past and future physician appointments, and even allows users to take a snapshot of their data and email it to their physician. Plus, since all data is stored locally on each user’s iPhone, nothing conf
