Back to School: How an Athlete EHR System Can Help


Back to school: how an Athlete EHR system can help: school sports field

That time of year has come… summer is ending and it’s time to get back to school. This can be an exciting time, especially for those involved in the sports world with a new sports season right around the corner. In our last blog, we gave you some back to school tips on how to help your athletes have a successful sports season. Now, we want to show you how you can take it one step further… by adopting an Athlete Electronic Health Record (EHR) system!

Presagia Sports’ web-based Athlete EHR system is designed to securely and effectively manage athletes’ health data to improve the day-to-day lives of athletics trainers (ATs) and other sports medicine professionals. So, how can our EHR help you? Here are some of the ways Presagia Sports can get you ahead this fall.

It Saves You Time!

When you’re treating dozens of athletes a day, it can be difficult to stay on top of all your paperwork and documentation. Presagia Sports’ Athlete EHR system digitizes all of your athletes’ health records, eliminating time spent sorting and filing through paper records. This digital record keeps all key information regarding your athletes’ health centralized in one secure location. It’s easy, all you have to do is log into the system, search for your athlete, and their complete medical profile will appear for you to view, edit or add any new information.

If that wasn’t enough, we partnered with PRIVIT to give you a fully automated and secure process to collect and manage the full spectrum of athlete health data. We are currently in the process of creating a seamless integration so that data collected through PRIVIT’s automated Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation (PPE) System will be automatically uploaded into Presagia Sports’ Athlete EHR system. This will give you comprehensive health profiles for each of your athletes.

You Can Bring It On The Field

One of the biggest perks of our system is that it can be accessed anywhere, anytime. All you need is a mobile device or tablet and you can access the EHR system wherever you go with our mobile app. Now nothing will ever go undocumented because you can quickly plug an athlete’s injury into the system from the sidelines. Additionally, our concussion assessment tool helps you diagnose an athlete’s concussion following the SCAT3 (SCAT5 coming very soon!) right from the field. This feature, along with our others, helped the University of Toledo provide their athletes with the most up-to-date care and the confidence to make informed return-to-play decisions.

Improves Communication

Having all your information centralized in one location not only saves you time, but also helps improve communication amongst your sports medicine team. Physicians, physiotherapists, ATs, and other support team members can all stay in the loop by having access to an athlete's medical record. For example, if an athlete gets injured at an away game, the AT can access the athlete's medical record from the field with their mobile device. Treatment and assessments can be performed on the road, notifying other support staff within seconds. This ease of access helped Clemson University by facilitating immediate and meaningful communication. As a result, the university improved their efficiency and accuracy of treatments.

Identify Trends

With Presagia Sports, you can run standard or customized reports to gain actionable insights that will help the decision makers in your organization. These reports help identify trends, track injuries, and measure treatment success rates. These reports can help your organization create training plans based on which injuries are most common for each particular sport and time of year. Additionally, as more organizations are sharing data to further the research on various injuries (especially concussions) it’s extremely handy to have a system that makes it easy to pull de-identified information quickly and accurately. Our system does that for you!

Implementing an Athletic EHR system like Presagia Sports can help you and your sports medicine team become more efficient and productive when it comes to the care of your athletes. Our system helps you get ahead by simplifying your daily tasks, so you have more time to focus on what really matters - your athletes. These are only some of the many benefits of our Athlete EHR system. To learn more about Presagia Sports’ features, check out our website.
