Vet-XML is an open industry standard
computer format that allows veterinary related
data to be shared between
different computer systems. The standard is sponsored by SPVS and
further details are available at www.vetxml.org. The interchange
of information is facilitated by a gateway provided by VetEnvoy.
The standard covers a variety of services and over time these all will be integrated into the Black Dog system. SMS messaging is now available and electronic submission of insurance claims to companies such as PetPlan is currently under development.
- The open order screen now provides immediate feedback as to the net cost of items ordered on a per item and per supplier basis.
For further information re. version numbers etc. see the earlier post.
