Concussion Vital Signs, an online neurocognitive testing platform designed to integrate with concussion management protocols, announced today it will extend its "free" concussion management software offer to any physician or healthcare provider supporting schools, colleges or universities. In an earlier April 15, 2015 press release Concussion Vital Signs announced the application would be available at no cost to all schools, colleges and universities.

“Based on the uptake from the April announcement, as well as requests from the field, it is apparent a free solution is needed for the providers supporting the schools as well as the the ATCs in the schools,” stated Alan Boyd, CEO of CNS Vital Signs. “It became clear that many physician offices doing pre-season physicals want to do baseline concussion management testing as part of their services. With this announcement, Concussion Vital Signs can serve the majority of providers within the concussion management space. Furthermore, It is our public health duty to broaden our commitment to support the two types of practices managing concussions. First, the neurologist or other sports medicine physician or provider with the legal responsibility to sign off on return to play who may not be interested in presiding over baselines, but needs post-injury access to reports and in-office testing via the schools account. For that provider, just as before, they will continue using the Clinical Portal function of Concussion Vital Signs, at no cost. With this announcement we provide a free solution to those qualified providers needing to administer baselines or oversee the administering of baselines as well as the post injury testing within their own Concussion Vital Signs account. For example the sports medicine groups supplying ATCs to the schools will find this solution appealing. As I said in the April press release, it is our goal that concussion testing will not depend on what zip code you live in or the fiscal or budgetary constraints of the school system. Again we hope our contribution elevates awareness as well as the safety of all student athletes. Now any provider supporting a school will be able to administer both baselines and post injury tests via their own account if that makes their sense to their practice."
