Arlington, TX and Menlo Park, CA - The United Football League (UFL) and Kitman Labs, the sports technology and analytics company setting the industry standard for how elite sports organizations use data, today announced the deployment of the Kitman Labs Intelligence Platform (iP) as the new EMR of record for the League, inclusive of the 8 member teams.

Unify, consolidate and standardize league-wide medical documentation and data collection - eliminating data gaps, inconsistencies and inaccuracy and facilitate club-level compliance

Collaborate and align relevant internal stakeholders across both the Medical and Performance Teams to support evidence-based decision-making around player health, care and wellness

Enable practitioners to spend less time dedicated to data collection, analytics and administrative oversight and more time with athletes

Establish a solid and complete data set to support ongoing and future league-wide research initiatives and innovation
