PIEDMONT, Mo., Dec. 3 McAllister Software Systems, Inc.announced that the next version of its industry-leading software, AVImark2009, will integrate with Veterinary Pharmacy Reference software (VPR). Thisallows veterinarians to access a wealth of pharmaceutical information
-- including potential side effects and drug interactions -- right from theAVImark software, making it easier to pass this information along to clients.
According to the FDA, most pet owners who reported an adverse drugexperience in their pets were not aware that a particular drug prescribedcould cause such a reaction. With AVImark's new VPR integration,veterinarians can quickly and easily access this information right fromAVImark's client display, print client handouts (with or without specificprescription information), and automatically generate drug interactionwarnings for patients.
"This new AVImark integration is a great value for our users," said StevenMcAllister, president, McAllister Software Systems. "In a busy practice,veterinarians often don't have time to dispense complete pharmaceuticalinformation, and clients may leave without fully understanding druginstructions or potential complications. AVImark now puts that informationright at a veterinarian's fingertips, saving clinics time and money andhelping them practice better medicine. It's just one more way that we'recommitted to the success of each practice."
The VPR integration also makes several other tools available throughAVImark: an interactive drug search (by generic or brand name), printabledrug information, off-label consent forms, anesthesia consent forms,interactive anti-parasitic charts, a drug interaction matrix, and a dosagecalculator. Beginning in December 2008, veterinarians will be able topurchase the VPR software directly from McAllister Software Systems, alongwith AVImark 2009.
