Tyler, Texas—October 28, 2020— Baylor Scott & White Texas Spine and Joint Hospital Tyler, a division of Texas' largest not-for-profit healthcare system, is pleased to announce its a


doption of HitCheck as the primary cognitive assessment tool for student athletes on the field. Collaborating with 32 schools, spanning from small junior high schools to large high schools, encompassing a total of over 10,000 athletes, the hospital employs HitCheck to gather baseline cognitive assessment data and to conduct ongoing testing and monitoring throughout the season, particularly in cases of suspected injuries or post-incident evaluations.


“HitCheck is an extremely useful tool because it’s mobile, convenient, and not time consuming. We don’t have to reserve a computer lab to baseline or monitor athletes, and we have the ability to check an entire team in 20 minutes or less,” said Daniel Fuller, Director of Sports Medicine Outreach for Baylor Scott & White Texas Spine and Joint Hospital Tyler, Licensed and Certified Athletic Trainer. “The app gives us data that we as athletic trainers can evaluate and share with the physician attending to the athlete. It’s an amazing tool in our toolbox to better care for someone right on the sidelines.”


Baylor Scott & White Texas Spine and Joint Hospital Tyler has athletic trainers on the sidelines for games throughout Texas to help should an incident occur. HitCheck is available on their mobile phones and permissions are given for specific team access depending on who the athletic trainer is attending to.
