RankOne data makes it easy to tell your story as an Athletic Trainer. If you collect it then you can pull everything you need with a few clicks. If you need help just call and they can guide you through.
What are some of the common things you RankOne sees from ATs?
Newspapers seeking info
Easily filter through the data that has been entered
We take data security seriously
Data transfer is really important in security.
We work with a lot of partners to make the transfer of data as seamless as possible
We partner through our API to integrate those partners.
Do you have a complete online solution for forms?
We put the medical history form online
We have included a physical upload form so parents can include a scan of the form.
There are definitely pros and cons for both.
Going Back to Data Collection
Other than concussion reporting integration what are you seeing?
Justifying the need for Athletic Trainers
* Reports show how many treatments and using the CPT codes can demonstrate value
The proof of your value is in the data.
Until something bad happens the ATs value is usually glanced over.
It gives you a great way to look back and reflect.
Seen anything weird?
We get calls requesting additions often.
So we add fields when it helps them collect that data.
We like to get a consensus before we make any big changes by checking with the Athletic Trainers.
Ease of use features with RankOne Data:
Messaging within RankOne
We are creating a more robust messaging system that allows two-way communication.
It will message the email that the account was created with.
Any features you have cut?
There have been quite a few changes that are in response to user feedback.
What are we doing to prevent the dreaded August 1st breakdown?
We have set up some API boundaries for our partners.
Load-tested the servers.
Thanks, Bethpage Consulting for helping make the trip to SWATA 2023 possible

Nutrition Myths – Kim Lowry
Kim Lowry and
Nutrition Myths are so close, so easy, so trendy…Kim Lowry discusses some of the Sports Nutrition myths with Ryan Collins at the Memorial Hermann Sports Medicine Update.
2-2.2 grams of protein if they are trying to bulk up
Total calories are a common misconception
You can not bulk up Muscle but not add any fat…almost universally
Spread it out throughout the day
Research is mixed - some say within an hour increases your muscle growth
You can ap into muscle synthesis about every 3-4 hours
High Protein snacks and meals
Low-fat cheese sticks
Protein bars and shakes
Adding chicken to your pasta dish
You can add peanut butter
I like to use the “Tasty App” and search for dorm room ramen for healthier options
Eggs are another good option
Creatine is BAD…
Pretty much all of the nutrition myths have been disproven in all healthy usage of creatine.
SWATA Experience – Sean Hwang
Sean Hwang discusses his first SWATA experience with Dr. DJ Gilliland.
Tell us your story, Sean
Went to UT Austin.
US Army field artillery officer for 3 years
Went to chiropractor undergrad for a semester
I had been doing something similar to AT with my amateur Korean soccer teams
I shadowed John Houston at the University of Houston Women’s Basketball
SWATA Student Track?
I was not expecting to learn a lot because they made it out to be a fun hang-out.
Dr. Knoblauch’s lecture about balance
Being up to date on current trends
Cannabis lecture from Dr. Konin
Have you met anyone knew?
I would love to…but I have not really.
Dr. Harrison: we will take you around and let you shake hands with everyone
Does UH pay for the students to go to SWATA?
Nope they fundraise
Last year's group did a great job fundraising.
The stickers and bracelets were a pretty big hit
How many students ended up coming from UH?
There were about 20 students.
Our preceptors and partners jump on the opportunity to get the students here.
If you are passionate about learning new things then coming to SWATA is the place to be.
What has been the most unique thing you have learned so far?
Cannabis is not THC. CBD can be used without it causing an impact on your THC test levels.
Suggestions from Sean
I would like to see more nonathletic setting workshop courses here at SWATA.
Tory Trevino asks: what are you learning as professionals?
DG: CBD talks
DG: Seeing people I have not seen in years
LH: Bre’Layshia’s talk included a personality trait test and have mock conversations with different personality types.

Foster Care ATs
Foster Care is not easy. Neither is Athletic Training. Travis Turner is trying to grow his family through foster care/adoption.
Storytime with Buzz
Storytime with buzz is just that, fun stories from an old school Athletic Trainer still practicing. Thanks, Bethpage Consulting for helping to get the SMB out to SWATA 2023 in Arlington.
I have been attending SWATA for about 38 years
I broke my collarbone playing football and then became the team manager. Sam Aguilara came to teach the coaches about Athletic Training products. I knew I could do the stuff he was showing the coaches.
The next thing I knew they were sending me to AT clinics at colleges.
I have met a lot of great people during my career as an Athletic Trainer
Joel Kregerberg was the assistant AT for the Oilers while I was an intern. I got to tape Earl Cambell. He greatly deflated my ego when he told me it was the worst tape job he ever had.
Give me some more storytime
Houston Rodeo got me started with Justin Sports Medicine and Truman Spoon Sports Medicine
Did you get autographs?
Not really, I was always around the people and did not consider it.
Where was your first job as an AT?
Seminole High School is about an hour from Lubbock.
I moved to Macaney with the head coach
Then the Houston Oilers called and I moved to Houston
Take us back to Seminole HS
I taught driver's ed in the morning.
It is a small school with a small AT Facility
We were really good at basketball and gymnastics
I taught a job at the Air Force base with firemen and nurses
Who are some of the mentees that have impacted you?
Valerie Tinklepaugh-Hairston - with her impact on college sports and SWATA
David Traylor - SWATA Hall of Honor
Southlake Carroll High School is being run by two of my former ATs
TSATA Hall of Honor
This award brings a smile to my face every time I think about it.
What did you dream about being as a kid?
My dad was a pharmacist
My brother was a pharmacist and MD
I thought about following them
Storytime - What sticks out the most?
A Houston Oiler went down and was basically numb from the neck down
We backboarded him
That was his last game to ever play.
He was a good friend of mine.
My wallet and everything I needed were in my bag that the equipment managers packed up since I went to the hospital with him. We almost got stranded in Kansas City.
