Tuesday was a big day for us here at Healthy Roster. We held the very first meeting of our Medical Advisory Board. We invited people from different areas of the healthcare landscape so we could gather a diverse range of opinions when it came to our company and the platform we're building.
We are fortunate to have the following people on our Medical Advisory Board:
- Chip Hubbs, CEO, Memorial Health
- Dr. Greg Bellisari, Orthopedic Surgeon, Orthopedic One
- Dr. Jason Dapore, Primary Care Physician, Ohio Health
- Bill Davis, Sports Medicine Director, OhioHealth
- Julie Brough, ATC, University Hospitals
We covered a number of topics, but we really focused on the following three areas:
- EHR/EMR Integration: Connecting to the health system's main EHR was incredibly important to everyone. With the amount of money invested in EPIC, Cerner and other EHR's, it's no longer OK to leave Sports Medicine outside of these systems.
- Engaging Parents: Creating a relationship with parents is one of the main reasons hospitals commit to outreach. By inviting parents to Healthy Roster, you not only increase the communication around injuries, you can also communicate with parents who's kids aren't injured.
- Easy Documentation: The overall consensus was that current documentation systems for Sports Medicine are not user friendly. They make the Athletic Trainer's life harder as keeping up with documentation - especially in the high school setting - very difficult and stressful.
Healthy Roster is committing to developing our platform to excel in these three areas. We've spent a considerable amount of time making sure we can now integrate Healthy Roster with over 25 EHR's. We're currently developing our marketing tools so you can have push notification and in-app messaging available before next school year. And we're going to continue to build out what we consider the best sports medicine injury tracking and communication platform on the market today.
We'll be meeting with our Medical Advisory Board twice a year to make sure we stay on top of the issues that matter most to your orthopedic/sports medicine departments.
