VisualVet Prototype Released to Pilot Clients March 24, 2013
In less than a year, Visual Vitals—VisualVet has released its first working prototype to our pilot clients for pre-alpha testing and development feedback. As its name alludes to, VisualVet provides an innovative way of reviewing patient information. The idea is simple — when patients/owners are informed about and involved in the care of their animals, there is an increase in positive outcomes thus reducing cost and increasing client retention.
A recent study revealed that 43% of pet owners feel their vet failed to communicate in a manner they understood. VisualVet is the bridge to better communication. Providing pamphlets or patient education literature is not a new concept — the idea of creating one-off custom reports, however, which incorporate a clear and concise message on what the results mean, what the patient can do to increase healthy outcomes, while reducing the issues on communications, is a new concept.
“The release of the prototype to our pilot group signifies a big jump forward for veterinary medicine,” remarked Mark Horn, CTO of Visual Vitals. “We are really at the forefront of some possible practice-changing processes that now give patient owners the chance to actively understand and participate in the care of their family pets.”
Visual Vitals—VisualVet is planning to release their software to beta testers in the next 9 to 12 months.
