From diagnosing knee injuries and torn hamstrings to ensuring a concussion does not go untreated, athletic trainers, team physicians, and other sports medicine professionals play a crucial role in the competitive success of sports teams and athletes. Working closely with one another in athletic training rooms, sports medicine centers or on the sidelines of games, these professionals generate a huge amount of data every day. How easily that data is stored, recalled and shared can make or break effective collaboration and treatment decision-making. Many are finding it increasingly difficult to keep up using the traditional paper and pen approach or desktop injury-tracking computer programs. Fortunately, web-based Athlete Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems are available to simplify and streamline injury tracking, concussion assessment, record keeping, communication and data analysis. Presagia Sports is one such system: highly user-friendly and designed specifically for sports medicine. A quality Athlete EHR system will not only streamline your data management, but also help you to provide a higher level of care for your organization’s athletes. In this update of our popular “Choosing an Athlete EHR” whitepaper, we’ll walk you through six criteria crucial to choosing the right Athlete EHR. 1. Product Features Before you begin your research, establish a list of features you want in an EHR system. While a top of the line system will allow configuration and customization to meet your specific needs, these steps may slow down your implementation time and add costs. It’s best to find an all-in-one solution with most of the features you need out-of-the-box. Some of these will likely include: Core athlete and medical records: Tracking numerous types of data will enhance your efficiency and improve injury prevention planning, so make sure the system you choose has the ability to record all of the fields you need. This should include (but not be limited to): contact information, sport profiles, insurance information, diagnoses, treatments, treatment plans, physician meetings, physical therapy exercises, medical notes, surgeries, prescriptions, vaccinations, allergies, and medical alerts. Concussion assessment: A concussion assessment tool is another feature that can enhance any Athlete EHR. As research in sports medicine focuses increasingly on concussion risk and prevention, having a system like Presagia Sports with a built-in SCAT3 is essential to making informed return to play and treatment decisions. Athlete kiosk: This feature is rapidly growing in popularity. It enables athletes arriving at the athletic training center to login to your system andenter basic information like contact details, medical history and other data. This kind of routine data entry can waste athletic trainers’ time, and having athletes do it themselves leads to greater efficiency and enables you to spend more time on treatment. Mobile accessibility: With a mobile version of the software, athletic trainers and physicians save time by being able to record treatments and notes as they occur. A mobile-accessible software also allows for quick communication between the field, training room, and anywhere athletic trainers or teams might be when an injury occurs and treatment is required. Because no two [...]
