Covetrus Announces Real-Time Integration of Its Prescription Management Platform for eVetPractice® Users

Sponsored by Businesswire

Covetrus (NASDAQ: CVET), a global leader in animal-health technology and
services, announced today that it has completed the real-time
integration of its cloud-based veterinary practice information
management system, eVetPractice®, with its prescription
management technology.

eVetPractice® joins Covetrus’ other leading practice
information management systems AVImark® and ImproMed®
in offering real-time, bi-directional integration with its cloud-based
prescription management technology. More than 16,000 practices
within the United States run on Covetrus’ practice information
management systems. This integration represents a major step forward as
Covetrus brings to market a cohesive set of technology services focused
on improving workflow and efficiency in the veterinary practice with
prescription management and compliance at the center.

“We’re very pleased to offer practices that use AVImark, ImproMed, and,
now, eVetPractice an unparalleled level of integration with our
prescription management technology,” said Chris Dollar, senior vice
president of Covetrus Global Software Services. “Driving innovation,
enhancing our practice management capabilities and simplifying the
experience for our customers is at the core of our mission.”

Key benefits for the real-time integration include:

  • Synchronization between online prescription management and clinic
    software to ensure that veterinarians and their teams are able to view
    a complete history within their practice information management system
    without the need for double entry
  • The ability to coordinate and track the status of prescription
    authorizations and shipments within the clinical workflow in order to
    decrease time to therapy and enhance compliance
  • Streamlined processing to enhance productivity of the veterinary
    staff, and help re-direct resources to clinical and other
    administrative functions

Medical compliance for veterinary prescriptions, including preventative
medications, remains low at a time when the national incidence of flea,
tick and heartworm disease is on the rise. This underscores the need to
transform how veterinarians manage and engage their pet-owner clients to
help drive greater preventative awareness and improve medication

Covetrus prescription management technology has demonstrated the ability
to drive two-to-four times improvement in compliance for prescriptions.
Streamlining this workflow through the tighter integration with the
practice management system can help eliminate administrative burden,
drive greater client engagement and improve health and financial

“One of our top priorities was to integrate our eVetPractice and
prescription management capabilities to streamline and enhance
performance for the practices,” said Georgia Wraight, president of
Covetrus Global Prescription Management. “By automating documentation
and making prescription management easier for eVetPractice customers, we
can now deliver a more seamless experience and empower veterinarians
with tools to drive improved compliance.”
