Veterinary Private Practice Software

Veterinary private practice software is designed to help veterinary surgeons and nurses manage their business and provide customer satisfaction. Good veterinary software provides the tools for practice managers to deal with the financial and administrative side of running a veterinary surgery with a clinical module and patient record cards. Most systems will have a diary that enables you to schedule tasks and appointments and to sync it with the diaries of other practice vets. There is a letter function for patient recall when follow up appointments and annual injections are due, letters can also be sent out for missed appointments and unpaid accounts. Appointments will also be included on individual animal record cards and cards can be stored under the animalís name.

Most veterinary surgeries sell veterinary insurance, medication and products and so they need an accounting system that includes stock management and inventory. Users can find things like top selling items by generating customisable stock reports. Much of the veterinary private practice software is web based and system updates can be accessed and downloaded online. Accounts modules include practice income and expenditure, invoice generation and flagging of overdue accounts. Some systems also include a feature for making e-claims when customers have pet insurance. Letters can be sent out to late payers and reports generated to give you a complete financial picture of your business.

Some clinical modules include the facility for integrating a digital X-ray machine and the system can then generate jpeg copies of the images which can then be attached to individual records. Records will also include details of past and present treatment as well as any plans for future treatment; drugs and dosage are also entered on individual animalís records. The clinical module also allows for the attachment of laboratory and scan results saving staff time and enhancing the overall experience for the client and their pet. There is a facility for recording ID chips and for prescription generation and printing letters and labels. The Data manager in some veterinary private practice software allows you to view clinical charts in an Excel spreadsheet. You can locate specific reports including who purchased what on which date and what treatment was undertaken on a specific day.

Accounts programmes in most veterinary private practice software can generate invoices and help you to keep on top of your billing, including the use of charity vouchers and insurance claims and payments. You can generate reports including stock bought and sold to get a fuller picture of your business finances.

You can purchase veterinary private practice software or get a basic setup as a free download. Most systems are designed to enable you to run your business more profitably and provide an enhanced service to clients and their pets. Most systems provide customer manuals to help you to understand your private practice software and run it to the advantage of your business. Most systems work with Microsoft and can be synced with Microsoft office documents, in general there is not the same training and support for veterinary software as there is for other private practice software.
