National Women’s Soccer League To Roll Out Performance Medicine Solution By Kitman Labs As Advanced EMR
The National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) and Kitman Labs, the sports technology and analytics company signed a new data arrangement beginning in 2024. The deal calls for the Division-I women’s professional soccer league featuring national team players from around the world to be technologically outfitted with a centralized and configurable operating system designed to aggregate and mobilize all player medical data. Performance Medicine Solution powered by iP: Intelligence Platform will enable all current and incoming NWSL franchises with the Performance Medicine Solution. The Sports Techie community blog is honored to share this breaking sports tech story released from both New York, NY and Menlo Park, CA to our readers, followers and fans, as well as athletes and sporting organizations representing the world’s most popular sport. Kitman Labs is setting the industry standard for how elite sports organizations use data via one of four Solutions offered as part of Kitman Labs’ iP: Intelligence Platform.
“In making the decision around what technology to deploy, it was critical for us that the technology not only represent the gold standard in performance intelligence but be supported by a team of practitioners born from the Sport. We get both in Kitman Labs,” said NWSL Chief Medical Officer Cindy Chang. “We’re not looking for the quick fix or a short term solution. We’re looking for a partner that understands our vision and can provide a platform that can scale and adjust as the League continues to grow and evolve. We also needed a platform that would help automate and streamline workflows, freeing up bandwidth for medical and performance staffs to do what they do best – develop and train elite athletes.”
The NWSL teams are to be provided the Performance Medicine Solution technology and infrastructure to automate and power accurate, league-wide medical data collection and analysis, drive collaboration among all relevant league and team stakeholders, yield actionable intelligence to support specific performance outcomes and enable data-led decision-making and research.
The clubs are the Angel City FC, Chicago Red Stars, Houston Dash, Kansas City Current, NJ/NY Gotham FC, North Carolina Courage, Orlando Pride, Portland Thorns FC, OL Reign, Racing Louisville FC, San Diego Wave FC and Washington Spirit.
Performance Medicine Solution Objectives
- Standardize league-wide medical documentation and data collection – eliminating data gaps, inconsistencies and inaccuracy and facilitating club-level compliance
- Collaborate and align relevant internal stakeholders across both the Medical and Performance Teams to support evidence-based decision-making around player health, care and wellness
- Enable practitioners to spend less time dedicated to data collection, analytics and administrative oversight and more time with athletes
- Establish a solid and complete data set to support ongoing and future league-wide research initiatives and innovation
