“We were in a very archaic EMR system where our athletic trainers were trying to document in very physician driven systems… my note was almost taking me longer to do than the encounter that I had spent with that student athlete.” – Jen Tymkew
With the help of Smartabase NU built their own EMR system within Smartabase, with an athletic training specific focus and the ability to develop comprehensive injury reporting.
By centralizing medical and injury reporting in Smartabase, the data can then be fed through to inform reporting for other departments in real time. For example, coaches will know whether injuries are bothering individual athletes, and the availability of those student athletes at all times thanks to live status updates.
Further to this, with injuries and incidents stored in Smartabase, High Performance Managers, Coaches and Sports Science staff are able to start looking at injury trends over time and gain even deeper insights from injury data.
