CurePet and Penn Vet Announce Adoption of Cloud-Based Practice Management and Electronic Medical Records System Across Top University's Facilities

By Ashley Berke Published: Mar 18, 2013
[March 18, 2013; New York, NY] – CurePet, Inc., developers of cloud-based software for the veterinary health industry, today announced that after a two-year study, the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine has chosen CurePet’s innovative software for both its Philadelphia and New Bolton campuses.

Penn Vet will benefit from CurePet’s implementation of and training for providers, faculty, students and staff in their Practice Management System and Electronic Medical Records solutions, creating a new way for Penn Vet to provide top-of-the-line veterinary care while connecting with referring veterinary practices.

CurePet's groundbreaking, cloud-based, state-of-the-art Electronic Medical Records and Practice Management systems will provide Penn Vet’s practitioners, students and administrative staff with intuitive, point-and-click solutions that minimize time spent on scheduling and registration, medical charting, treatment and billing while enhancing practice organization. Penn Vet’s facilities treat both companion animals and large animals, and CurePet’s scalable and customizable systems were found to adapt well to all veterinary needs.

"Penn Vet is excited to partner with CurePet on this pioneering venture," said Joan C. Hendricks, VMD, PhD, the Gilbert S. Kahn Dean of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. "We look forward to advancing the frontiers of veterinary medicine by developing the gold standard of integrated EMR for an academic veterinary institution."

CurePet Founder & CEO Ali Hashmat said, “We are excited to have partnered with Penn Vet and look forward to rolling out our EMR and PMS solutions across their campuses. CurePet’s products will allow Penn Vet to share data across their practices and locations, allowing all users to access critical medical records from any location. CurePet will also be offering the solutions to smaller veterinary practices that frequently refer patients to Penn Vet, allowing specialists access to past medical history and referring providers the ability to follow up on patients.”
