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.


About University of Cincinnati Athletics

Athletics are deeply ingrained into who we are as Bearcats. Whether you want to come and watch our outstanding Division I athletes compete in person or you are one to take to the field yourself, we’ve got you covered.

Plus, there are endless opportunities to get fit and stay in shape in our state-of-the-art recreation facilities.

There is nothing quite like the excitement of catching a game at UC. Red and black are in style year-round along our sidelines — whether you are going crazy with 40,000 other football fans inside Nippert Stadium, cheering the basketball Bearcats to victory inside a packed Fifth Third Arena or supporting one of 15 other men’s and women’s teams. When it comes to sports, you are in for something special at UC.

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®.
