Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine has partnered with ezyVet to use the company’s cloud-hosted veterinary practice management software (PMS). ezyVet’s products will be used by more than 1,000 individuals, spanning faculty, veterinary staff, students, and post-terminal degree trainees, interns, residents, and post-docs across the seven hospitals comprising the Cornell University Hospital for Animals.
ezyVet products include XERO cloud-based accounting, Smart Flow electronic treatment whiteboard, Cubex dispensary, rVetLink specialty referral portal, and Vet Rocket and Asteris digital imaging.
The first ezyVet site is due to go live in June 2018.
ezyVet and Cornell will use AI and machine learning to create and automate workflows and processes where faculty staff has full visibility of student work, said company founder and CEO Hadleigh Bognuda. This means that ezyVet becomes an important part of the teaching process, with teaching faculty being able to verify and grade real-world student work within the teaching hospital, he added.
“Our passion has always been around developing our software in ways that assist vets to think and act clinically—to deliver a world class standard of care without losing money across any area of a veterinarian practice,” he said. “Our partnership with Cornell will be a major contributor to our product evolution, both in the short and long term.”
The selection of ezyVet is in line with a wider Cornell “cloudification” strategy involving moving hardware and software into the cloud, said Meg Thompson, DVM, DACVR, director of Cornell University Hospital for Animals and assistant dean of hospital operations and corporate relations.
“We want our graduates to go into the marketplace skilled and practiced in how to use a modern veterinary practice management system,” Dr. Thompson said. “At the same time the ezyVet partnership will see both parties investing in building out the software to explore innovation and better use of our PMS software as part of the teaching process.”
