Timothy P. Shriver, Special Olympics Chairman, says of Health One Global Limited’s contribution “A global technology partner of this caliber is exciting for Special Olympics. As our Movement continues to grow and further benefit the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities, we need the kind of state-of-the-art databases and software systems that Health One Global can provide.”
Health One Global supports Special Olympics as a charitable donation. Special Olympics uses HEALTHone to record the health screening data at hundreds of Healthy Athletes events each year in dozens of countries.
With HEALTHone Special Olympics has created the world’s largest and most comprehensive research database on the health of citizens with intellectual disability.
Health One Global is also currently developing an Athlete Personal Health Interactive Record in conjunction with Special Olympics Healthy Athletes. When deployed, this customized health record will alter the way people with intellectual disabilities access their health information and interact with health professionals.
