Australian health record app connects with athletes globally

MELBOURNE-based Global Health announced this week that it has partnered with the Jobs4Sport digital platform allowing players to take their medical records with them when they move between countries and clubs.

Jobs4sport currently connects rugby union players, agents, coaches and clubs and plans to expand into cricket, football, netball, basketball, AFL, rugby league and hockey.

In the next two years, Jobs4Sport expects to connect 200,000 people worldwide and

athletes on the platform will be provided with their digital medical records via Global Health’s Lifecard app, which will integrate with Apple Health and Google Fit by November 2018.

Former Australian Wallaby Chris Roche said the partnership will be a boost for amateur rugby recruitment, which depends on a portable workforce.

“For many years players have been attracted to a club on the promise of a job, now through Jobs4Rugby you can secure the job for the player before they leave their hometown with the added benefit of their personal digital medical record travelling with them,” Roche said.

The Lifecard personal health record collates medications, medical history, allergies, test results, reminders, and wearables data. It also allows users with ongoing health conditions to track measurements such as blood glucose levels, blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

According to Global Health CEO Mathew Cherian, the partnership with Jobs4Rugby will allow Lifecard to adapt the app for use in the major rugby-playing nations across five continents.

“For amateur athletes, regardless of the sport, having your health record for emergencies or just for monitoring your key health performance indicators is a massive step forward,” he said.

“Lifecard provides all athletes with the platform to have their personal digital medical record providing easy access to their medical record no matter where they travel or where they play.”
