Total Concussion Management LLC
Total Concussion Management LLC (TCMgt) is a NY State LLC formed for the purpose of standardizing the recognition and management of concussions in students.
TCMgt’s goal is to provide a mobile SW application (easySCAT), website, and database that will assist and educate coaches, athletic trainers, nurses and providers in the immediate recognition of a concussion.
“easySCAT” is an integrated tool that can be utilized on many devices and connects via the internet to establish updates and maintain a database of head trauma data. It is user-friendly and available for school faculty and medical personnel.
The website is aimed at education and providing timely advice and information on the latest and best information in the concussion field.
TCMgt is committed to making this process affordable and easy to use. It provides customer support and timely updates when new guidelines or other changes become available.
Our concussion expert physicians will answer questions to help inform and make the process informative and educational.
Ultimately, TCMgt would like to help all school faculty, students and parents treat concussions in the same manner. Use of easySCAT and TCMgt resources allows for the standardization of concussion protocols to ensure the successful return of athletes to play and hopefully to better the overall safety of our school-aged athletes.
