For the 1997-1998 season all Stanford varsity athletes completed the health history questionnaire. The majority found the web site easy to access and complete. Sixteen physicians administered the 1997-1998 PPEs; almost all stated the printed history summary was useful or very useful in focusing their physical exam on problem areas and most physicians indicated it substantially improved their opportunity to address primary and preventive care issues. The presence of the summary decreased the time required for each individual exam as compared to previous years. The new PPE format thus shows good athlete compliance, improved exam efficiency and a strong increase in subjective physician satisfaction with the quality of medical care provided.
