High school sports coaches have to keep track of a lot of student data: permission slips, parents’ numbers, doctors’ numbers, eligibility forms. Until now there wasn’t really much of a way to keep this data secure and onsite besides the trusty metal strongbox and stacks of index cards. In an emergency situation such as an injury, a coach needs to make quick, informed decisions in order to get the student the best possible medical care.
emCard solves this problem with an app and a centralized database. Parents enter their child or children’s information in the web component of the app, including eligibility for certain sports, notes about special needs, there’s even a place for them to download, approve, sign and upload permission slips directly. The coach then has this information updated into a simple app they can access any time, any where. They have at-a-glance access to all the information they need to make informed decisions that are in the best interest of the family and for the safety of the child.
Aesthetically I wanted to give this a medical look (safety yellows and cool blues) with a softer edge to take some of the severity out of making these decisions. The logo is a play off the smartphone as little black medical bag. I also designed the app to work cleanly and brightly in low-light situations (like a football night game) for maximum usability. Anything the coach needs to know is a couple taps away and getting the parents or emergency services on the phone can be done in under a minute.
