If you’ve ever worried about a patient after leaving the clinic or wondered if the hourly rounds in the ICU would be enough to catch early warning signs of distress, you’re not alone. Most equine clinics and hospitals, while they are diligent in their practice and provide excellent patient care, simply can’t ensure that every patient is being monitored at all times. But with customizable alerts on the Piavet Platform, you’ll get peace of mind (and maybe even some sleep).
In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, vets are feeling the pressure to provide more remote services, but the tools that exist to help them do this have not yet been widely adopted. But the key is knowing that such tools do exist, and they will take you where the industry is headed.
There are a host of veterinary practices around Europe and the United States, from small ambulatory practices to large university clinics and hospitals, that are using telemonitoring every day to get objective data around the clock with the Piavet System.
The Piavet System enables a truly connected clinic by bringing vital sign data to the user, rather than the user having to go get it (several times a day) themselves. While the durable and easy-to-use hardware makes starting a measurement easy, what truly sets the Piavet System apart is the software platform and its many valuable features.
PIAVET PLATFORM FEATURES
The Piavet Platform is where you can see equine health data in real time, access previous measurements, collaborate with colleagues, and more. Our features set us apart, and they can set your clinic apart, too.
- SMS Alerts
- Push Notifications
- Overtime Charts & Data Analytics
- Objective Documentation & Data Export
- Professional Collaboration
- DiploVet Integration
Let’s face it: Sending vet techs on rounds to take temperatures and auscultate is manual, low value-add labor that takes a lot of time. And at the end of the day, timing is everything when it comes to diagnosis and treatment decisions.
This is why we added alerts, which is easily one of the top features of the Piavet System. Do you have a high-risk colic patient who needs to be monitored continuously overnight? Before you start a measurement, customize your notification settings to get alerts directly to your cell phone via SMS and to the platform as a push notification.
You’ll only receive an SMS or push notification if four or more alerts are triggered for the same parameter within 15 minutes. This way you aren’t getting alerted every time a patient has a sudden spike in heart rate. They are horses after all!
Check out this Piavet Tutorial to learn how to enable alerts and customize settings to get peace of mind (and a bit of sleep) while monitoring your at-risk patients.
