NCAA Injury Surveillance Program

The ISP is a data collection initiative designed to track and analyze medical illnesses and injuries that result from sport participation. Since 1982, athletic trainers have collaborated with the NCAA to create the largest collegiate sports injury database in the world. Today, the NCAA Sport Science Institute partners with the Datalys Center, an independent non-profit research organization, to manage the ISP and to help inform injury prevention policies and practices in college sport.

To enhance the care of college athletes, your school’s participation is needed. To help make the data submission process easier, the ISP is compatible with the following electronic medical record systems:

  • Athletic Trainer System.
  • CSMI Solutions SportsWare Online.
  • Presagia Sports.
  • SIMS.
  • Vivature NExTT.

For schools with compatible EMRs, participation requires about 20 additional minutes of data entry per week, per sport. Schools are asked to contribute data for two to three sports per season for the ISP to provide informative analyses. For schools that do not use a compatible EMR, the Datalys Center offers a free web-based system for any school to use.

For questions or to sign up for the ISP, contact the Datalys Center at NCAAISP@datalyscenter.org or at 855-832-4222.

Notice of Data Request Moratorium

The moratorium, which began in November 2018, will continue indefinitely until further notice as the NCAA and Datalys continue to work collaboratively on updated application policies. Additional information will be provided here in late 2019.
