University of CincinnatiPRIVIT, the leading provider of automated Pre-participation Physical Examination (PPE) services, announced that the University of Cincinnati Athletics (UC Athletics) renewed a multi-year agreement with PRIVIT. UC Athletics will continue to leverage PRIVIT in their leadership as a Division I university focused on improving the sporting experience for athletes and others.

Replacing a manual, time-consuming and inconsistent process for PPE, PRIVIT provides UC Athletics a secure solution for collecting, processing, and managing protected health information about athletes. This next-generation solution provides easy completion tracking giving UC Athletics visibility into where their athletes are in the process of completing required pre-participation forms.

“PRIVIT has revolutionized the way we collect our athlete’s health information, and the way we manage our PPE process at the University of Cincinnati. PRIVIT saves us hours in the PPE process by reducing the workload our sports medicine department faces each year when collecting and managing the multiple documents needed from each athlete. The solutions provided by PRIVIT helps our department become more efficient and allows us a more comprehensive and accurate collection of athlete health information,” said Aaron Himmler, AT, MS, Assistant Athletic Director of Sports Medicine (Football), University of Cincinnati Athletic Department. “In addition, PRIVIT has provided us the tools to audit the completion status of required forms needed from athletes to guarantee compliance with our participation policies.”

“For the past three years, UC Athletics has been a valued client. Using PRIVIT made sense for UC Athletics because the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) made our solution the legal standard of care for athletes in the high school market. Wth the growing adoption of PRIVIT throughout Ohio high schools, any graduating high school seniors participating in UC Athletics will have a head start on their health history,” said Chris Goodwin, Chairman and CEO of PRIVIT. “For high school students and their parents, PRIVIT provides peace of mind that the safety of the student athlete is guarded by an advanced system for collecting and managing health information.”

Throughout North America, colleges and universities are leveraging PRIVIT to drive compliance and streamline processes within their athletic departments; some of which include, Coastal Carolina University, Fanshawe College, Stanford University, University of British Columbia, University of Calgary, University of Florida, and University of Southern Maine.

Presagia and PRIVIT Partner

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 their 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.”
