NFL | iPads, online records to be used for concussion assessment
Wed, 17 Jul 2013 16:38:24 -0700

Every NFL medical staff will use iPads this season as part of the league's ongoing efforts to improve the assessment of concussions. Players' results of tests like X-rays, as well as imaging studies, notes and plenty of other data are expected to be available online by the start of the 2014 season, and medical personnel would be able to access the information on an iPad. Each iPad will have software that includes the Sideline Concussion Assessment Tool (SCAT-3), the most advanced neuro-cognitive available, to test to determine whether a player has a concussion. The Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens, Denver Broncos, Houston Texans, New England Patriots, New York Giants, New York Jets and San Francisco 49ers are participating in a pilot program this season that permits the results of a test to be transmitted via the Internet to a player electronic medical record. There are still a number of hurdles to jump, with respect to the players' union especially, but the last collective bargaining agreement, in July 2011, stated that such a system would be implemented.

The NFL is serious about player safety, as you may have heard, and this would allow for extremely swift diagnosis for a player. One possible benefit is that there could be fewer players held out for precautionary reasons if medical staffers were able to rule out concussions quickly.
