A secure, Internet-based injury tracking system is now available at a special discount for members of the NATA.
The National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA), has agreed to make the Online Sports Injury Manager available to all of its members at a discounted rate through a special arrangement with MedBusiness.net. Inc. The secure, HIPAA compliant system will allow certified athletic trainers to manage their athletic injuries and connect to physicians and insurance companies through secure servers to track claims and progress of student athletes from the time of injury throughout the entire treatment and rehabilitation process.
The network, which was rolled out nationally in January 2004, gives everyone involved in the treatment of the athlete constant access to critical information at the point of injury as well as the point of care.
The system contains specific insurance and other vital information concerning the athlete and includes a database of professional caregivers that can be matched to the particular situation and receive instant electronic referrals.
