ScribePro was setup in April 2018 and formed with the plan to improve the way that sports and event medicine patient care is delivered.
Two of the key management members are consultants in emergency medicine and are involved in the delivery of care for sports and events medicine. The concept of our apps originated from their idea that a better digital solution could take the place of current based systems for team managed sports. And with this idea came the teaming up with top digital specialists in healthcare to form ScribePro.
Many hours were spent discussing, planning and testing the concept for the digital platform in the beginning. A feasibility study grant awarded by Innovate UK allowed the concept to grow into an MVP and from there the direction was set to design and develop the Team app.
Launch – Team App with Covid-19 Screening
The Team app originated from knowing there was need for a digital solution to easily and safely record medical consultations within team sports. Football became the focus and the initial version of the app was based around the parameters in the UEFA Elite Injury Study. With input from the Scottish FA and individual club clinician experiences further feature enhancements were developed to transform the Team app to what it is today. The result is the creation of a secure, fast and easy to use medical records system for rapid data entry, in real-time, on the move as well as enhanced system analysis on desktop.
Ready to launch, this was paused with the advent of Covid-19. It was then realized that with the plan for football to return there was the opportunity to positively contribute to the screening of players by integrating this element into the Team app. Fast forward to now and the Team app is ready for launch.
New development work is now also taking place to bring two new medical apps to market – the ScribePro First Aid and ScribePro Event apps.
The two new format medical apps will replace the paper-based systems that are currently in place and provide a digital solution for recording in real-time first aid incidents and sporting event injuries and medical interactions.
The goal of the company is to focus on the continued development of the medical app platform to allow quick diagnosis, recording and secure sharing of the care required for both players and athletes in teams and events and for all first aid incidents.
The company is located in Scotland with a team of six.
