1. Simple and affordable IT Infrastructure

It’s not possible for all veterinary institutions, especially smaller practices to be able to afford a high-tech IT environment. The infrastructure used is top of line and simply financially unviable if one were to create a similar setup. Since Vetport is web-based you don’t have to worry about ever again about software deployment and hardware expenses; old servers, upgrades, disk crashes, data losses, viruses, faulty terminals, etc.

2. Mobility

Few things are as important as mobility, in today’s on-the-go world. With Vetport you do not have to worry about lugging paperwork with you or worrying about getting the information when you want it. All you do is use the internet to access the application, whenever you need it and wherever you may be. This ensures great mobility in your operations and allows one to handle out-of-office emergencies as well as improve productivity, messaging and communications.

3. Cohesion

With Vetport, all participants of the veterinary ecosystem can work together. It is possible to give a secure access to all the select sections of your practice management system like pet owners (for patient records), specialists, vendors, outsourcing partners, practice managers and staff members, making the process of working together a lot smoother and hassle-free.

4. Accessibility

Its web-based technologies allow for access from any device with a browser. This eliminates the need for specific investments that you make and maintain just for troublesome clinic hardware.

5. It allows the IT staff to shift focus

With Vetport the IT staff does not have to worry with constant server hardware and software management and constant updates. They are now free to concentrate on innovation.

6. Faster Scalability and Flexibility

A new clinic and support infrastructure can be set up in no time and can be managed remotely. Data storage can be increased on demand and resources can be increased swiftly as the load increases. The clinic set-up can be accessed from anywhere you require, both as a collective whole or individually depending on the security rights given.

It improves the features’ utility and improves the possibility of integration with other environments and applications. Specialist and referrals practice access, third party lab integration, imaging aggregators, price aggregators, EHR and CDSS implementation and analytics are some examples.

Vetport offers a state-of-the-art secure environment from the inside out with safety features like secure communication, built-in data security and a comprehensive audit trail documenting the changes made.
