Better Lives with Care.Wallet: Sports Injury in Australia

Almost 60,000 Australians were admitted to hospital for injuries sustained while playing sports in 2016/17, according to a 2020 report by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.  Sports injuries occur during exercise or while participating in a sport. Children are particularly at risk for these types of injuries, but adults are susceptible as well. If an injury doesn’t heal within two weeks, one should contact their doctor for an appointment. Serious sports injuries may require surgery and physical therapy.

Different sports injuries produce different symptoms and complications. The most common types of sports injuries include sprains, strains, knee injuries, swollen muscles, among others. These injuries can affect the quality of peoples’ health and life. If the sports injury looks or feels severe, it’s important to make an appointment to see the doctor. Sometimes the symptoms can only start to be visible after a couple of days. These can take the form of swelling, bruising, or even a fever.

This is where Care.Wallet, once configured, can be used to control and monitor the changes after a sports injury. How Are You Feeling Today (HAYFT) Care.Cards can track changes in the patient’s health, indicating that either patient or doctor should make an appointment or a consultation as soon as possible. Care.Wallet allows for the patient to make an appointment for a time that is convenient for them. Using the Book a Ride Care.Card, patients can schedule care appointments immediately, or for a later time or date. Patients will get the approval notification as soon as the ride is confirmed. Care.Wallet keeps all the records in one place so patient and doctor can easily monitor the whole health recovery process.
