“I would personally like to thank Vivature for presenting us this check today, not only as proof of our athletic department’s collections but also as a huge symbol of what a prosperous partnership we have with them. Their cutting-edge EMR software and billing solutions has provided us with an ongoing revenue stream that we simply didn’t have before” stated Bruce Hemphill, MSU’s Director of Athletics.

Today, McNeese State University was presented with an impressive $46,959.39 check, by their partners at Vivature. This revenue was generated simply by utilizing Vivature’s billing solution for their athletic training room medical services rendered. 


We are thrilled to see the fruits of their labor pay off. The leadership at McNeese State University is remarkable, and the mutual ambitions they exude makes this a recipe for an excellent enterprise. We are very proud to call them our partner” stated CEO/Owner of Vivature, Muzzy Bass.


“The Concept is so simple”, mused Lance Wilson, Vivature’s Executive Vice President, “treat all athletic trainers like every other medical professional and everything else falls into place. When the treatments are properly documented, an abundance of revenue is generated that would not have otherwise been realized. The outcome allows the schools to continue an elite level of care for their student-athletes.”

McNeese State University, located in Lake Charles, Louisiana, fields 14 Division 1 intercollegiate sports in the Southland Conference. Their Cowboy Football team participates in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS/l-AA). For the past 5 years, their athletics department is led by Bruce Hemphill. Since heading up the department, their athletics has flourished on the field, in the classroom and in fundraising totaling over $40 million dollars. The Cowboys and Cowgirls have won 9 Southland Conference Championships and have been ranked as the No. 1 Louisiana Southland Conference School in the Final Commissioner’s Cup Standings all 5 years, including a 3rd place mark for the 2017-2018 academic year to post the highest finish in school history. In addition, and under Hemphill’s guidance, McNeese Athletics has surpassed the APR Benchmark score in every sport, every year. It is no surprise that the recent partnership with Vivature has also became an effortless endeavor for Hemphill to strategically increase the sports medicine department’s budget while also advancing MSU’s athletic training rooms, which benefits their student-athletics healthcare.
