New App Makes Staffing Athletic Trainers a Breeze

Guest Blogger: Ricky Schwartzberg of Go4Ellis

The Go4Ellis platform efficiently links athletic trainers with sports event operators looking to hire medical professionals for their events. Athletic trainers register for free accounts and set up a professional profile, including proof of licensure, liability insurance, and other legal requirements.  All athletic trainers on Go4Ellis must be members of the National Athletic Training Association. Similarly, event operators can register for accounts and post upcoming work opportunities and pay rates. We currently work with tournament operators, camp directors, athletic directors, club coaches, and leagues in 24 states.

Go4Ellis also handles all the little details around hiring hourly athletic trainers. Payment is fully automated through the platform, so no checks to write and send.  Additionally, Go4Ellis also handles all year-end tax documentation for both athletic trainers and event operators, and auto-generates an emergency action plan for every venue at your event.

Now if you’ve never staffed athletic trainers at your events you may want to re-think that approach.  Athletic trainers (ATs) are highly qualified, multi-skilled health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions. Athletic trainers work under the direction of a physician as prescribed by state licensure statutes.

On-site at your event, athletic trainers are trained to save lives, stabilize emergency situations, and make the tough return-to-play decisions for each athlete.  By taking return-to-play decisions away from coaches and tournament directors, athletic trainers provide protection to the player and, by extension, remove liability from the coach, the team and your event.

Go4Ellis makes staffing athletic trainers simple.  No more calling around, posting on a listserv, or using a staffing service with highly marked up rates.  Just set up a free account on Go4Ellis, post the dates and times you need athletic trainers and the hourly rate you are offering, and let athletic trainers come to you.
