SUMMARY
 
Athletic sports teams were designated as “users” versus “non-users” based on their utilization of Sparta Science. Total number of injuries, total cost of injuries, and volume and cost by discipline (surgery, physician office visits, imaging, and physical therapy (PT)) was compared for the users versus the non-users groups.

CONCLUSION 

A reduction was seen in total billed claims, surgery costs, and office costs in the user group. This group also demonstrated a decrease in the number of surgeries, number of office visits, and the number of imaging procedures.
