Broncos to Participate in Program That Puts Medical Records Online

The Denver Broncos are one of eight teams that will take part in a pilot program during the 2013 season that puts a player’s entire medical record on the sideline via handheld computers carried by team doctors.

The program could put everything from X-rays to concussion tests to injury history right on the field. The information could possibly be moved from team to team if a player is traded.

The mobility of the medical records ensures accuracy, and speeds up the transition for the player, but there’s concern about how the information would be distributed and whether it could be used against players.

The Ravens, Steelers, Texans, Patriots, Giants, Jets, and 49ers will also take part in the pilot program.
