Covetrus Integrates Prescription and Practice Management Technologies

June 6, 2021 GMT

PORTLAND, Maine--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 6, 2021--

Covetrus® (NASDAQ: CVET), a global leader in animal-health technology and services, announced an enhancement to their leading practice management software to help today’s veterinary clinics compete online and deliver more complete healthcare.

The latest AVImark® and eVetPractice® updates include streamlined prescribing through an embedded integration with the Covetrus Prescription Management Platform. With access to digital scripts within these central operating systems, veterinary teams will save time, empower compliance and run more efficient and successful practices.

As veterinarians compete with aggressive online retailers focused on disintermediating their business, an integrated prescription process gives practice teams a smarter workflow that drives patient health by proactively recommending the right medication at the right time. With pet and horse owners increasingly reliant on 24/7 online shopping, veterinarians and their teams are spending hours reviewing prescription requests from online retailers, further overwhelming busy clinics and diverting resources needed to provide exceptional patient care. Digital scripts direct animal owners to the practice’s own online pharmacy, for wellness-focused workflows and faster fulfillment.

“Covetrus is committed to providing solutions that advance animal health and this integration brings together powerful technology to drive a healthier, more complete care experience,” said Georgia Wraight, executive vice president and president of Covetrus Global Technology Solutions. “Seamless digital prescriptions within practice management further supports clinics challenged by both capacity and compliance.”

The continued integration between signature Covetrus software solutions is based on significant customer feedback, user research and beta testing. Other benefits of this combined technology include the ability to create scripts from the patient record, search the full product catalog, and track prescriptions with writeback functionality.

“This integration is very simple and intuitive, which saves us time by making the prescription creation workflow much faster,” said Jennifer Potts, hospital manager at Chimney Hills Animal Hospital. “With the information embedded in our software, it’s easy to compare products and write a prescription recommendation in just a few quick steps. All of this makes our delivery of care quicker and more convenient for our pet owners, too.”
