San Francisco, CA /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – The Boston Athletic Association and RACESAFE™ are working together to help consolidate and streamline the management of event day medical needs across the B.A.A.’s portfolio of events, including this year’s 127th Boston Marathon. RACESAFE™ will provide the B.A.A. and its medical team with its robust, user-friendly mobile interface that offers real-time, GPS based communication, reporting and documentation of all medical incidents providing instant situational awareness during the races.
“With participant safety of the utmost priority, we are always looking for ways to streamline our critical medical operations,” said Chris Troyanos, Medical Coordinator for the B.A.A. “RACESAFE™ was used at our 2022 races, and has been a reliable tool as we plan for the future. It has been effective in fast tracking our need for situational awareness in real time – a critical component for our events.”
In addition to its powerful event day applications, RACESAFE™ helps events and their medical partners recruit and organize the event’s medical team and provides detailed post event analytics to help prevent future bad outcomes. It offers event participants a secure HIPAA compliant portal to share their personal medical information for a more comprehensive response to an event medical emergency.
