NovaCare, the official sports medicine provider for the University of Cincinnati Department of Athletics, announced it will use Privit Profile™ (formerly PRIVIT e-PPE) to improve the pre-participation evaluation (PPE) process for Bearcats student-athletes entering the 2014-15 season. Privit Profile™ provides an online comprehensive questionnaire designed to collect a more thorough medical history for an athlete. After the athlete completes the questionnaire, Privit Profile™ generates a medical history summary to assist medical professionals during the screening process and physical evaluations. The medical history summary assists in a more focused physical exam by calling attention to health risks that are relevant to the athlete and filters out any negative responses.

University of Cincinnati is looking forward to moving the medical history portion of the PPE process online and to reducing the amount of paperwork shuffled between athletes and the athletic department. In addition, Privit Profile™ provides a more detailed health history.

“Managing over 500 athletes a year, Privit Profile™ will allow us to receive an athlete’s medical history sooner, providing us ample time to review,” said Bob Mangine, Associate Athletic Director at University of Cincinnati.

“We are excited for the opportunity to work with the University of Cincinnati Bearcats and to provide them with the tools necessary to help increase the health and safety of their athletes. By obtaining a more detailed health history on their athletes, the University of Cincinnati is demonstrating how serious they are in regards to the overall care of their athletic program,” said Jeff Sopp, CEO of PRIVIT®.

We are happy to report that we have successfully transitioned our pre-participation process for our athletes to a more efficient practice! It began with the introduction of Privit Profile™ (formerly PRIVIT e-PPE®). Privit Profile™ is a web-based comprehensive health profile that enhances our pre-participation process on several levels.

The first benefit we identified was having our athletes complete their health history information prior to the mass physical date. This provided my staff and me ample time to review their information prior to the physical exam, and to proactively contact athletes in the event they potentially would require further screenings. Thus, reducing the amount of unnecessary delays prior to practice starting. Second, the athletic and the sports medicine departments are able to easily and quickly access individual athlete medical history information from a computer or mobile device. The ease of access is convenient when traveling with various teams. Thirdly, our athletes prefer to complete the information online because now they can keep the information updated regularly, as opposed to filling out new paperwork year-after-year.

In addition, with the recent software enhancement of electronic signatures, we now have the ability to eliminate the need for printed copies. Athletes now have the ability to sign the required paperwork electronically. This allows us to see the date and time of when the documents were signed, right from the application.

Privit Profile™ is helping us reduce our carbon footprint, while providing us with more detailed information about our athletes. This new process is allowing us to be more proactive prior to our mass physicals, while helping us better protect the health and safety of our athletes.

The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association (TSSAA) has announced the approval for its member high schools to use the Privit Profile™ (formerly Privit e-PPE) an electronic Pre-Participation Evaluation solution to replace the current paper-based pre-participation evaluation (PPE) process used for interscholastic sports. Privit Profile™ provides a comprehensive health history questionnaire that helps improve the prescreening process required for sport participation.

Migrating the paper PPE process to the Privit Profile™ solution helps high schools better facilitate the process of collecting personal health history information from athletes and save time and costs associated with managing the paper process. In addition, it gives parents the flexibility to keep their child’s health information current, and since the information is only entered once, updating the information in the future is as simple as clicking a few buttons.

“After implementing a pilot program this past spring, we are excited to provide our member schools the option to transition to a digital health questionnaire in an effort to better streamline the management and collection of medical forms,” Mark Reeves, Assistant Executive Director for the TSSAA.

“We are excited to partner with the TSSAA to provide its member schools with an online service to enhance the pre-participation process for interscholastic sports,” said Jeffrey Sopp, CEO of PRIVIT®.

Privit Profile™ is a patented and secure solution that includes a more comprehensive health history questionnaire that is easy to use and helps mitigate health risks related to sports. The reports generated by Privit Profile™ provide a detailed summary of an athlete’s health history and readily identifies health risk areas to support the physical exam. Taking the paper-based process and transitioning it online will provide athletic trainers and coaches more time to focus on the nearly 115,000 participating Tennessee student-athletes.

The Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) announces it has signed an agreement with PRIVIT®, Inc. to provide a comprehensive health assessment system for their Program of Excellence. This program will be implemented beginning in April.

Phillip McKee, Executive Director of the Ontario Hockey Federation, said, “We look forward to working with PRIVIT® to streamline the pre-participation information collection process, but more importantly to have that information in a useful format for those onsite who require it.”

PRIVIT®, Inc. offers the world’s only web based privacy compliant platform in which a player completes an Electronic Pre-Participation Evaluation (e-PPE).  The completed e-PPE generates the player’s personal health profile. The player owns the health profile and in turn grants viewing rights to individuals such as a healthcare professional.  This arrangement and PRIVIT® ensures the collection and storage of the player’s personal health data is thoroughly privacy compliant.

In summary, Privit Profile™ (formerly Privit e-PPE) improves the process of collecting health data and the personal health profile assists in identifying risk symptoms that permit designated healthcare professionals to respond quickly and correctly when situations arise.  The preceding features mitigate the risks associated with physical activities and eliminate costs associated with traditional paper based data collection and storage.

PRIVIT®, Inc. has customer relationships with the Minor Hockey Alliance of Ontario, The London Knights (OHL), The Hamilton Huskies Minor Hockey Association, The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, Stanford University, The U.S. Ski & Snowboard Association and various other North American athletic associations.
