This season DCMHA has joined ePACT to keep, share and access medical records for each player by team safety people and coaches. ePACT is an online emergency network that allows organizations and parents to access medical and other important information on participants. It also allows team officials to contact parents via email to alert them of pertinent information i.e.: if there was a team function scheduled, delay of bus travel or any communication related to your team. This program will allow coaches/safety people and managers to access medical information for each player on their team through an app on their mobile device anywhere they are playing. This should greatly improve the safety of players by having the information on hand at all times. Parents will need to create an account and input all medical information for their player(s). This information will only be accessible to parents, coaches, managers and safety people on line or on the app. Information can be updated at any time and can be integrated with any other organization using ePACT. For example if your child was in soccer and that organization used ePACT the medical information could be linked to DCMHA as well. As a parent you have control over making sure all the latest medical information is on there and available to the people who need it. DCMHA will also have the Parent & Player Code of Conduct Contracts on ePACT for you to sign, so no need to have paper forms of these filled out any longer. DCMHA is confident this will be a better way to track and access medical information for your player! Your team manager will give you the information at the start of the season in order for you to create an account and input the necessary information.
