Petrobras funds project to provide Boxing, Weightlifting, Fencing and Taekwondo Confederations with Athlete Electronic Health Record system
Montreal, Canada, March 8, 2012 – Presagia, a leading developer of web-based software solutions to manage the health of professional athletes, announced today that the Boxing, Weightlifting, Fencing and Taekwondo Confederations of the Brazilian Olympic Committee are now using Presagia Sports. The software incorporates an Athlete Electronic Health Record (Athlete EHR) and will enable the physician team of the confederations to better manage the health and development of their athletes, in order to promote peak performance in competition.
The project was led by HTR Solutions, the official distributor of Presagia Sports in Brazil. Petrobras, the country’s largest energy company, has funded the project with the support of the Brazilian federal government law.
Olympic Committees rely on teams of medical specialists to ensure their athletes are healthy and performing at their best, creating a huge amount of health data that needs to be shared in real-time. With Presagia Sports, the Brazilian Boxing, Weightlifting, Fencing and Taekwondo Confederations will utilize a web-based Athlete EHR that they can securely access anywhere, anytime via the Internet. The medical staff can capture complete, accurate health data whether in a sports medicine clinic, at a training facility, or away at a competition – mobility that is essential when treating athletes who are travelling across the globe.
“Presagia makes it possible for us to manage and disseminate multidisciplinary information with the medical team in order to be more proactive in our care of our athletes,” said Waldir Zampronha, physiologist for the Boxing and Weightlifting Confederations and Manager of ZAZ Corporativa.
Presagia Sports allows the entire medical team to access, manage and share the vast amount of health data generated for each athlete. By providing a centralized database and internal real-time communication tools, well-informed critical treatment decisions can be made more rapidly.
“The richness and reliability of Presagia Sports allows us to determine the medical actions we should take with efficiency and resolution,” said Dr. Bernardino Santi, physician for all four confederations.
“We are excited to welcome the Boxing, Weightlifting, Fencing and Taekwondo Confederations of the Brazilian Olympic Committee as our newest Olympic customers,” said Peter Rorlick, Co-Founder and VP Research and Development at Presagia. “They join a distinguished group of Olympic Committees who have made health an important piece of their competitive strategy.”
