The 20-Year Evolution of Presagia Sports

2017-06-14T10:10:29+00:00 June 14th, 2017|All, Company News|

    It’s our 20th birthday and we’re celebrating! Join us on a blast from the past as we look back at the evolution of Presagia Sports and how it became the Athlete Electronic Health Management System it is today! A little background… Our parent company, Presagia was founded in 1987 by David Glickman and Peter Rorlick in Montreal, Canada. Operating under Montreal Business Software, Inc., they began with a mission to provide innovative software solutions that would make data accessible, simplify communication and streamline management processes so that organizations could improve the delivery of healthcare. This mission eventually drove the company to create its very first sports injury tracking solution. Injury Tracker In 1997, the company officially introduced Injury Tracker, a sports injury management software. The solution began as a consulting project for McGill University’s Sports Medicine Clinic, when the university’s athletic therapists requested the creation of a software that would provide them with a structured database system that could be securely shared among various users to record injuries and treatments for their athletes. The project was a resounding success, and the company introduced the new solution to the market at an annual conference for Canadian sports medicine practitioners. It was received enthusiastically, and universities, clinics, and professional sports organizations started implementing Injury Tracker to help them be more efficient and effective in their treatment of athletes. So what did Injury Tracker do? The Windows application helped athletic trainers, coaches, physical therapists, researchers, and team physicians better manage athlete health by: Efficiently organizing important athlete medical information Scheduling follow-up treatment appointments Identifying injury trends Creating useful and meaningful reports from the data InjuryZone Following the success of Injury Tracker, new technological breakthroughs began to change the software landscape. As more and more organizations began adopting internet connectivity, Injury Tracker was rebuilt as a web-based version called InjuryZone. InjuryZone was the first cloud-based commercial web application offered to sports medicine professionals, making its big debut in 2003. What made InjuryZone so unique? InjuryZone had all of the great features of Injury Tracker, but took all of the complexity out of setting it up and sharing it amongst users. Presagia hosted InjuryZone, becoming a pioneer in the world of athlete health management application by providing the first ever “Software-as-a-Service.” Customers only had to login to access the world’s premier athlete health management application, allowing healthcare teams to securely manage, share and report on their athletes’ data in real-time from anywhere in the world. InjuryZone also allowed customers to create their own screens in order to track other types of athlete information, and even adapt existing screens and functionality. In other words, it could be tailored to an individual customer’s needs. The first of many organizations to use the new customized cloud-based athlete injury tracking and Electronic Health Record (EHR) software was UK Sport, the governing body responsible for the health of British Olympians. Presagia Sports InjuryZone’s unique web-based software was a huge hit. It was consistently ranked #1 in the industry [...]

Presagia Sports and PRIVIT Partner to Improve the Management of Athlete Health Data

2017-05-30T15:28:22+00:00 May 30th, 2017|All, Blog, Company News|

Presagia Sports and PRIVIT are proud to announce a new strategic partnership to combine their expertise in athlete health management to provide better solutions to the sports medicine world. Presagia Sports is the leader in Athlete Electronic Health Management Software and PRIVIT is the leading provider for online Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation (PPE) and Health History Registration Systems. Together, they will integrate systems to give customers a fully automated and secure process to collect and manage the full spectrum of athlete health data. A key element of an athlete’s health profile is their health history collected as part of the pre-participation evaluation process, which gives athletic trainers and other sports medicine professionals an initial picture of the athlete’s health. To date, this data has been collected in one system and then manually transcribed into Athlete Electronic Health Records (EHRs). PRIVIT and Presagia have integrated their systems to streamline the flow of this critical data. PRIVIT’s PPE system automates and simplifies the process of collecting, managing and protecting pre-participation and registration health information. Data collected through PRIVIT will then be automatically uploaded into the Presagia Sports EHR, creating comprehensive health profiles for each athlete. Now, athletic trainers and other sport medicine professionals will have an athlete’s injury and health information, as well as their clearance status, all at their fingertips. “PRIVIT and Presagia Sports share similar values of providing our clients with the means to accurately collect complete health data about their athletes,” stated Mitchell Slutsken, Director of Presagia Sports. “We’re very excited about how this partnership will enable us to deliver a more efficient and comprehensive health management solution to our clients.” Both systems are built on technology that ensures all health information is protected and organizations stay compliant. The integration between Presagia Sports and PRIVIT will help organizations with the difficulties associated with protecting personal health information (PHI). Using a powerful software like Presagia Sports centralizes PHI data in one location, and makes it only accessible by authorized personnel. This allows athletic trainers to spend less time dealing with paperwork, and more time caring for their athletes. In addition, it helps organizations use athlete health data to gain actionable insights into trends and develop strategies to improve the wellbeing of their athletes. “The combination of PRIVIT and Presagia empowers our customers to be more efficient and effective in this entire process,” said Gregory Miller, President of PRIVIT. “We believe this partnership provides sports organizations with a best in class athlete health management solution.”   About Presagia Sports Presagia Sports is a secure web-based and mobile-accessible multi-sport Athlete Electronic Health Record (EHR) with a built-in concussion assessment system, that athlete health professionals can rely on to centralize and manage data, including injury assessments, medications, treatments and more. It also provides real-time reporting and communication tools to connect the medical team in support of collaborative healthcare. www.presagiasports.com About PRIVIT PRIVIT® was established in 2009, and provides a secure cloud-based patented technology for the collection, distribution, and analysis of personal health information.
