With the VitusVet app, a pet owner can access all of their pet’s life-saving medical records in a dire situation and share it with whomever needs it, whenever they need it
Columbia, Maryland (PRWEB) June 01, 2016
VitusVet, a mobile app solutions provider for veterinary clinics, is excited to announce the company’s expansion to California. The mission of the company is to improve the health and well-being of pets through innovative technology.
52.9% of Californian households own a pet and, as the number continues to increase, the need for a platform to track, share, and maintain animal health records will become more evident.
VitusVet’s expansion will help improve the conversation between pet owners and veterinarians in California regarding the importance of healthcare and compliance. To help with the expansion, the company has become an Affinity Partner with the South California Veterinary Medical Association (SCVMA), the nation’s largest regional veterinary medical association. "The SCVMA looks for businesses or companies or organizations that offer products or services that are new and different and can make a difference in veterinary practices and the lives of pets. The SCVMA Board of Trustees felt that VitusVet truly met those criteria as it impacts practices and pet owners. We look forward to seeing what difference this can make for our local veterinary community.", said SCVMA Executive Director, Peter Weinstein, DVM, MBA. SCVMA represents over 700 hospitals and offers their 1200 members information about companies, like VitusVet, to help advance the science and art of veterinary medicine.
General practitioners, emergency veterinarians, and specialists throughout the state will be able to offer their clients a record sharing app that they can use for their beloved pets. “As an ER veterinarian, I have seen so many cases where pet parents are too panicked to remember their pet’s allergies or important medical details. If their regular veterinarian is closed, this can cost them hundreds of dollars in waste and redundant testing. Even worse, not having easy access to this info can lead to the worsening of their condition or even death.”, said Mark Olcott, DVM, MBA, CEO/ Co-Founder of VitusVet. “With the VitusVet app, a pet owner can access all of their pet’s life-saving medical records in a dire situation and share it with whomever needs it, whenever they need it.”
“California is known for its innovative technology, but somehow many veterinary clinics are still using outdated technology, like fax machines, that slow down an office’s workflow.”, says Kalpesh Raval, MBA, CTO/Co-Founder of VitusVet. The VitusVet platform will work with a veterinary practice’s existing software system and stores a pet’s complete medical record online, allowing it to be accessible to a user when needed. Veterinary practices in 15 different states as well as Washington D.C. have chosen to adopt the VitusVet program into their clinic to create better health outcomes for their patients.
VitusVet was founded by Mark Olcott, DVM, MBA and Kalpesh Raval, MBA, in 2013 as a solution to better share vet records between general practitioners, emergency veterinarians, and specialists in an industry that communicates through outdated technology. Downloading VitusVet’s mobile application allows pet owners to also have access to their pet’s complete medical information if they ever need to share it with other veterinarians, friends/family, or boarding kennels.
