CAPT streamlines your existing removal protocol with a step-by-step app-based approach that makes it easy for your team to make the right call.
Recognizing and making the call to remove a student or player can be challenging for coaches and other designated persons - especially when protocols aren't readily available or easy to follow. CAPT takes the difficulty out of your removal protocol with a fully configurable step-by-step removal workflow.
CAPT makes it easy for coaches, athletic therapists, and other designated persons to review your removal protocol at the time of an incident, with guidance on what to do next from an app they can access on any smart device.
CAPT allows your coaches and other designated persons to log a timestamped incident report about the concussion, and attach a sideline medical assessment (eg. SCAT 5) so you have a full audit trail for each injury.
Once you remove a player, the people in the player’s circle of care are automatically notified via email. Now, all relevant parties are informed whether the player should be participating in school or sport activities and will be kept informed on the player's return to activity progress.
CAPT provides coaches, medical staff, and other designated persons with a simple step-by-step workflow to follow with our app - making it easier for them to assess signs and symptoms, record an incident report, and make an appropriate removal call. Here's how an example removal workflow would work.
When a player sustains an impact to the head, CAPT is ready to help the coach and athletic therapist complete the appropriate actions to recognize common signs and symptoms of concussion and decide if they need to be removed from play. The designated person opens CAPT on their phone, and begins the “Recognize a Concussion” workflow.
Once the player has been removed from active play, the coach can use CAPT's recognize a concussion workflow to help guide them towards making a decision to allow an athlete to resume activity, remove an athlete from sport or initiate an emergency action plan. This step can also be completed by other designated persons, like an athletic therapist or nurse.
Next, the coach uses CAPT to record an in-depth incident report of the player's injury. All they have to do is answer the questions that have been configured by the protocol and upload it to the player's case log. If a medical professional is on hand, an additional sideline assessment can be performed,like a SCAT 5, and it can also be attached to the case file.
Once the player has been removed from activity, CAPT can help the coach and other designated persons by automatically notifying the appropriate people in the player’s circle of care via email. Based on the player, this could include their teachers, other coaches, medical staff, and parents. This feature can also be turned off based on your organization's preferences.
OOnce a player is removed, CAPT will initiate your organization's return protocol. When the player is ready, they can proceed safely through the steps with help from their parents or guardians towards a full return to activity.
