PORTLAND, Maine--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Covetrus (NASDAQ: CVET), a global leader in animal-health technology and services, announced today the release of signature product enhancements to its AVImark practice management software, including new functionality that streamlines common veterinary practice administrative tasks and drives greater coordination between the medical record and Covetrus’ prescription management technology.
These AVImark enhancements represent one of the many planned innovation investments across our technology assets that are scheduled to go-live in 2019 as Covetrus looks to improve workflow, create time savings for caregivers and staff, simplify practice operations and enhance clinical and financial health for our growing customer base.
“The growing complexity of managing a small business in an evolving veterinary landscape is increasing the burden on the veterinarian and their team of professionals,” said Chris Dollar, senior vice president and president, Global Software Services. “Our increased investment in practice management software for 2019 demonstrates our commitment to our customers as we look to not only deliver a better user-experience but to also launch next-generation functionality and workflow improvements to help these practices deliver quality patient care.”
Some of the new AVImark enhancements and features include:
|•||Medical record quick copy forward: This allows practitioners to quickly copy and add new notes on a patient's condition, significantly reducing the amount of time spent on medical record note taking.|
|•||Prescription management coordination: Prescriptions filled by the Covetrus prescription management technology flow directly to the patient’s medical record, bringing a complete view of a patient's medication history inside AVImark. By pairing AVImark with the Covetrus prescription management technology, practices can bring compliance to a whole new level.|
|•||Quick indicators: New indicators help with quick determinations of statuses to simplify AVImark customers’ work. Wellness plan indicators allow staff members to see patients on wellness plans. Estimates that have been approved now have a clear locked indicator from the main screen to ensure staff members know which estimate has currently been accepted by the pet owner. Practitioners can save time by getting a list of their open medical records through an information search.|
These AVImark upgrades come on the heels of new integrations and innovations launched by other Covetrus practice management solutions in the second quarter of 2019, including Covetrus prescription and inventory management integration for eVetPractice, multiple performance improvements that enhance speed to launch for ImproMed software customers, and significant new features for RxWorks internationally.
Covetrus Global Software Services will showcase these and other future innovations at VetSummit 2019: October 9-11 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
