Jockey Health Information System

The Jockey Health Information SystemTM (JHIS) is a central database that stores jockeys’ current medical records so that they are immediately available to medical personnel at racetracks in the event of injury.

The JHIS debuted at Keeneland’s 2008 fall meeting. There are no fees for a track or jockey to participate.
The creation and development of the JHIS featured collaboration among InCompass, The Jockey Club Technology Services Inc., the Jockeys’ Guild, Keeneland Association and Dr. Barry Schumer, Keeneland’s medical director, who developed the original concept and consulted on the project.

The JHIS is a module of the InCompass Track Manager software. To access and use the JHIS module, a jockey must be at least 18 years of age, have a valid e-mail address and obtain a user name and password from InCompass.

To obtain a user name and password, a jockey must take a:
  • valid jockey’s license or exercise rider’s license;
  • photo ID; and
  • completed User Name and Password request form available at the end of the User Guide, found at
to one of the following locations:

  • InCompass offices at 821 Corporate Drive, Lexington, KY 40503;
  • the Jockeys’ Guild offices at 103 Wind Haven Drive, Suite 200, Nicholasville, KY 40356; or
  • the medical office at a participating track.
Once identification has been verified, a user name and password will be provided to the jockey, who will then be able to access the JHIS and enter and update their health information. Access is available from any computer that runs Internet Explorer 7.0 or higher and has Adobe Acrobat Reader installed. Requests that are made by telephone, fax or e-mail from a jockey for a user name and password will not be granted.
