Rank One Sport and Children’s Health Andrews Institute Collab on New App for Student-Athletes » Dallas Innovates
Rank One Health saves time and money, prevents injuries, and improves communication in the world of children’s athletics—and it does it all right from the palm of your hand.
Rank One Health, a new healthcare app dedicated to improving the quality of care for K-12 athletes, was launched this month as a collaboration between Dallas-based Rank One Sport and the Children’s Health Andrews Institute in Plano.
About 30 million youths across the country are involved in organized sports, according to Stanford’s Children’s Health. But, with athletics comes injury, and it is reported that 3.5 million young athletes suffer from injuries year over year.
That’s where Rank One Health comes in.
Rank One Health helps manage athletes in grades K-12, and aims to give its clients efficient care that is available everywhere, right from your smartphone. The end goals of the app are to standardize the way student-athlete injuries are documented across the county and provide schools with secure communication systems.
Rank One Sport Founder Brian Mann has been working with athletic trainers in Texas since 2009, and has used customer requests and recommendations to constantly improve his company.
“We have seen firsthand the growth in our industry, and the expansion of the role of the athletic trainer within the school administrative leadership,” Jason McKay, chairman and CEO of Rank One Sport, says. “These are some of the hardest working people in education, and too often their hard work goes unnoticed.”
Some of the benefits provided to athletic trainers includes:
- Reducing the risk for school-based sports programs by providing accurate documentation and communication to help manage real-time injuries;
- Real-time tracking on injured athletes’ return-to-play time;
- Incorporating evidence-based data to improve decision making for professionals treating injuries;
- Secure and personal communication between health care providers, team physicians, and certified athletic trainers; and
- Centralized user roles and permissions to easily follow any school policy.
