Maintaining a complete medical record for each student athlete is vital to the performance and health of the athlete. Keeping individual paper records for each athlete can be a cumbersome task and paper records may not always be readily available. Using an electronic health record (EHR) in the college athletics setting streamlines all health data for the athletes into one central electronic storage location. The EHR is readily available and can be accessed simultaneously by more than one clinician providing care for the athlete. This paper focuses on the EHR implementation process for an NCAA division II baseball team. The benefits of using an EHR for the overall health of the athlete are discussed as well as the administrative benefits of electronic record storage. Three alternative EHR solutions are presented and discussed and from those three one is selected for implementation. An implementation plan and timeline are outlined for the chosen EHR solution as well as an outline for user training.
