Covetrus Launches New Platform Application to Drive Proactive Prescription Management

January 16, 2020 GMT

PORTLAND, Maine--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 16, 2020--

Covetrus ™ (NASDAQ: CVET), a global leader in animal-health technology and services, today announced the availability of Covetrus Script Assist, a new and more convenient way for veterinarians to leverage practice management system information to more proactively prescribe preventative medications for patients with past or upcoming appointments.

Covetrus Script Assist leverages machine learning and practice management records to quickly identify where gaps in medical care reside, particularly in areas like preventative medications. Once a prescription is “created,” the veterinarian or delegate will have minimal steps in order to get a prescription to the client for fulfillment on their storefront.

“Veterinarians continue to face challenges balancing the on-demand needs of today’s consumer with the focus on delivering outstanding clinical care,” said Georgia Wraight, executive vice present and president, Covetrus Global Technology Solutions. “Covetrus Script Assist is a great addition to our proactive prescription management capabilities and will be instrumental in helping veterinarians drive better clinical outcomes.”

Signature features of Covetrus Script Assist include:

“Script Assist has simplified our prescribing process and improved our workflow,” said Lenore Corazza, CCFP, practice manager, Lake Austin Blvd Animal Hospital. “Setting up patients with automatic renewals leads to improved medication adherence. Covetrus is helping us to better communicate and strengthen the trust and confidence our clients have in us.”

All Covetrus prescription management customers have access to the Script Assist application and may opt-in to use it.

Covetrus will demo Script Assist at the annual VMX Veterinary Meeting & Expo from January 18-22 at booth #1101.
