National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA) and PrivIT Announce Their Partnership

COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwired - October 30, 2013) - The National Athletic Trainers' Association and PrivIT announced today a partnership based on their shared commitment to sports safety. NATA supports 35,000 members of the athletic training profession who specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries and sport-related illnesses. PrivIT is equally committed to improving sports safety participation through the use of cutting edge personal health technology.

As an NATA Preferred Provider, PrivIT offers the association, among others, a patented, secure, easy to use, online system, called e-PPE (electronic pre-participation evaluation), to help participants, parents and medical professionals collect, protect, and share personal health information. The e-PPE program enables athletic trainers to be more proactive in their pre-screening evaluation process and provide more advanced levels of screenings by identifying and mitigating health risks specific to each player.

Additionally, they will have access to player profiles within a privacy compliant environment wherever Internet access is available. Parents and athletes will benefit from the ease of use and flexibility to update individual health profiles on a regular basis.

"We strive to provide our members the gold standard of innovative technology that will allow them to deliver the best health care to their patients while also making their lives easier," said Jim Thornton, MA, ATC, CES, NATA president. "ATs will also be able to access their own personal health history information, and experience the benefits of e-PPE first-hand."

"We are excited about our partnership with NATA and to offer members direct access to e-PPE for tracking their own personal health history," said Jeffrey Sopp, CEO of PrivIT. "ATs will be able to experience its time saving benefits, and see how it can provide important information to best evaluate the health and safety of student athletes."
