“I would like to thank Vivature for providing our student athletes with the best experience and advancements in healthcare that have allowed our sports medicine staff to function efficiently and ensure compliance with injury documentation. The revenue generated as a result of this partnership will allow the improvements of our medical facilities and equipment to provide our student athletes with the best healthcare possible”

Vivature just put the cherry on top of celebrating one year of partnership with Youngstown State University, presenting the YSU Sports Medicine Department with an impressive check. The year-to-date total revenue totaled $93,874.00. The money was generated simply by their athletic training room billing for medical services rendered on their student athletes, using Vivature’s billing solution and injury tracking software.

Vivature’s CEO/Owner Muzzy Bass, responded, “It’s amazing what can be accomplished when a team of people come together with such ambition and are committed to their student-athletes with such heart. While commemorating our one-year partnership with Youngstown, we are reminded of how the dynamics of teamwork should be; individual commitment in a group effort.” 

Youngstown State University’s Head Athletic Trainer, Ethan Solger added, “YSU is very fortunate to be partnered with Vivature in an effort to better the athlete experience.  The partnership allows YSU Sports Medicine the opportunity to achieve a much higher level of care and treatment for our student athletes.  Not only have we tremendously improved the student athlete experience and welfare we have taken tremendous strides in the athletic training profession. We are very thankful for the opportunity to work with Vivature and look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership going forward”.
