Safety Tag Announces Partnership with the Philadelphia 76ers
On January 3, 2017, Safety Tag Network Inc. announced a partnership with the Philadelphia 76ers professional basketball organization and one of Philadelphia’s major sports affiliates, strengthening our mission to increase Safety & Compliance in youth sports, and beyond – as reported by the Philadelphia Business Journal this past week here. The partnership will initially focus on utilizing the Safety Tag platform to increase safety & compliance for the Sixers Camps, which the Sixers organization runs for kids 4-14 throughout the year.
Safety Tag allows the Sixers Camps to utilize a revolutionary Safety & Compliance toolset for tracking all registration documentation, waivers, and medical forms, and allows parents to populate basic medical/safety background information in the event of an emergency. The platform is mobile, and easy to adopt. In addition, Safety Tag delivers a solution for non-medically trained volunteer coaches with the Sixers Camps to track & access the voluntarily disclosed medical information of the youths participating – information that could potentially save lives, while saving time and increasing oversight of on-site medical care.
At Safety Tag, we are focused on continuing to innovate and improve our platform to fill the significant gaps that exist in Safety & Compliance in sports, schools, athletic facilities, and eventually the workplace. With help from partnerships like the Sixers, we are proving the value of the platform while learning new ways to improve where Safety Tag can help and to improve the overall experience. Other partnerships, such as with healthcare providers like Virtua, and with insurance carriers like Philadelphia Insurance, are providing further validation of the value and requirement of filling those gaps in a meaningful and easy-to-adopt platform, connecting parents, coaches, teachers, doctors, trainers, PT’s, school nurses, etc… our platform is evolving to include the support of processes like the Return-to-Play protocol for concussion treatment, and the Return-to-Work protocol which employers, insurers, and healthcare providers use to monitor the medical treatment required to get workers back on the job following a workplace injury/incident.
