10 Reasons Why Epic Isn't Built For Sports Medicine

Smart Sports Medicine Groups Need
To be able to create and manage athletes, not patients.

How EPIC would handle this
If you’re logging injuries in Epic, every athlete that has ANY kind of injury must be entered as a patient.

Why that’s an issue

Do you need to create a patient profile for a sprained ankle that doesn’t need a visit to any of your physicians? This can lead to wasted time, effort, and database resources to build patients who have no clinical encounters.

Smart Sports Medicine Groups Need
To be able to document notes and actions for an athlete (SOAP Notes, Concussion Tests, Treatments, etc.)

How EPIC would handle this
There’s only one way to document in Epic without creating a billable encounter - a blank note.

Why that’s an issue

Blank notes don’t offer any structure or guidance to simplify and support best practices in managing an athlete’s health and performance.


numbers-03.png

Smart Sports Medicine Groups Need
To have mobile access to log, track and communicate from the field, sideline, or injury site.

How EPIC would handle this
Epic is built to be optimized and used on a desktop or laptop in the office. It lacks many features for mobile environment.

Why that’s an issue

ATs spend almost all of their time in the field, not at a desk or behind a computer. They need access to detailed SOAP Notes, Concussion Tests, and Live Secure Chat with coaches and parents.


numbers-04.png

Smart Sports Medicine Groups Need
To have the ability to look athletes up by school or sport.

How EPIC would handle this
Epic does not have the capability to create, sort, or search athletes in this manner.

Why that’s an issue

Accessing athletes quickly in the app, is important for athletic trainers dealing with injuries happening in real time.


numbers-05.png

Smart Sports Medicine Groups Need
An efficient way to log treatments from the sidelines or the training room. 

How EPIC would handle this
Epic needs a billing CPT code for logging treatments.

Why that’s an issue

No athletic trainers bill for their services at the high school level. 


numbers-06.png

Smart Sports Medicine Groups Need...
To have the ability to communicate securely (HIPAA compliant text and video) with coaching staff about injuries.

How EPIC would handle this...
Epic only communicates via the portal with patients.

Why that’s an issue

Making sure your coaching staff understands where each injured athlete is, with regards to their recovery, is key to reducing re-injury.

Smart Sports Medicine Groups Need...
To have the ability to communicate securely (HIPAA compliant text and video) with parents and caregivers about their children’s injuries.

How EPIC would handle this...
Epic only communicates via their MyChart app. The communication is only via email, not text or video.

Why that’s an issue

Most injured athletes aren’t patients of a health system at the time of injury. If they aren’t patients, the parents or caregivers would have no way to contact the athletic trainer.


numbers-07.png

Smart Sports Medicine Groups Need
To access/see which of their athletes have “open” injuries. These injuries are non-clinical and awaiting assessment or follow-up.

How EPIC would handle this
Epic requires a patient record, and a billable encounter. 

Why that’s an issue

An athlete injured during a game, who ultimately can be treated on the sideline or post-game treatment room, does not need clinical encounters built and managed - especially when that requires a blank note. 


numbers-09.png

Smart Sports Medicine Groups Need
Easily build and collect forms for different teams, schools, and individual athletes.

How EPIC would handle this
Epic handles forms by requiring PDF downloads from MyChart. These forms would then need printed, collected, translated, and uploaded back into Epic.

Why that’s an issue

Downloading, filling out, and then uploading is too time consuming and difficult for most parents. This makes adherence and engagement low. Yet forms, like state participation forms, are a critical component of AT compliance.


numbers-10.png

Smart Sports Medicine Groups Need
To have the ability to send educational materials and promotions to their network of athletes and parents.

How EPIC would handle this
Epic shares documents via individual patients through MyChart (see issues above).

Why that’s an issue

Sharing documents or promotional announcements with “schools” or “teams” is not something that can be done in Epic.
