Background Questions are used throughout Healthy Roster (particularly in Incident Reports, Encounters, Referrals, Events, and Patient Profiles for Healthy Roster 2.0) as a way for athletic trainers to add more specific information regarding to what problem a patient is experiencing. This can then be used in various Reports to help you have a better understanding of how and why injuries are occurring. Background Questions can also be included in the Note Templates feature in Healthy Roster 2.0.
A large number of Background Questions are pre-loaded into your Healthy Roster account. None of them are marked as mandatory. You can access them by going to Admin tab and selecting Background Questions. From there, you can see all of the pre-loaded Background Questions and add your own by selecting “Add.”
We recommend making at least one Background Question mandatory so you can start to understand how they can help you discover insights. A good one to start with is “Activity.” This query shows what the athlete was doing when injured, i.e. at practice, at a competition, etc.
