The timely and accurate diagnosis of a player's injury is key to ensuring an effective and safe rehabilitation plan is delivered to the player as soon as possible. Therefore detailed and up to date records of past injuries or medical diagnoses to facilitate this is a must have for any sporting team. Only when this is the case can medical, rehabilitation and coaching staff work together to form the best plan for their player.
Catapult AMS uses the Orchard Sports Injury Classification System (OSICs), one of the world's most commonly used systems for coding injury diagnosis in sports injury surveillance systems. This system ensures that all injuries and conditions are recorded under the same classification system. Only trained medical staff should be involved in the diagnosing of medical conditions.
Recorded injuries link to the Availability Dashboard, ensuring relevant information is communicated to coaches and other staff, in keeping with patient confidentiality. Files and additional notes may also be uploaded for the most detailed medical reports.
Injury information can be located under 'Physiotherapy' in the left-hand menu, and then selecting the 'Injuries' subheading. From the Injuries page a new injury entry can be created, as well as multiple other functions to assist in the monitoring of these reports.
