Access To Personnel And Medical Records
Section 3Electronic Medical Record System
The NFL shall maintain an online, 24hour electronic medical record system. Starting with the 2021 NFL Season, in order to ensure a comprehensive medical record exists for every player, including records related to Article 41, each Club shall provide a summary listing taken from the player’s Electronic Medical Record (“EMR”) of every Club physician-diagnosed medical condition evaluated and treated by any Club physician during the immediately preceding season and any Club physician-prescribed medications given during the immediately preceding season (the “Summary Report”) This Summary Report shall be provided, in written and electronic formats to the player’s home and e-mail addresses contained within the EMR, within 30 days of the last game of the Club’s season, for all players who were on its roster at any time during that season. The Summary Report will contain the information in Appendix BB (with non-material modifications to the format as necessary). Under no circumstances will a Club be responsible for including any diagnosed medical conditions evaluated and treated by or under the direction of another Club’s physician in the Summary Report. The Summary Report will be generated solely based on the information contained in the Electronic Medical Records and may include non-workplace conditions, illnesses and injuries suffered by the players outside the course and scope of employment. The Club may elect to include additional medical information in its discretion. The NFL will continue to cause the EMR System to be republished within 30 days after final roster reduction, and within 30 days after the Super Bowl. The NFLPA is responsible for maintaining accurate and current email addresses and mobile telephone numbers for the purposes of this Article. Players shall have the right to authorize the Club to provide a copy of the Summary Report to the NFLPA. The parties will agree on a reasonable process to obtain authorization from players to share a copy of the Summary Report with the NFLPA.
