Sponsored by Businesswire

Covetrus (NASDAQ: CVET), a global leader in animal health technology and services, today launched Covetrus Connect, a secure and permissions-based integration and solution delivery platform that connects Covetrus practice management systems like AVImark®, ImproMed®, and eVetPractice® with leading animal health technology partners. Covetrus Connect combines the industry-leading integration expertise of VetData with the suite of Covetrus practice management systems, expanding the range of integrated solutions available to veterinary professionals and accelerating innovation into their practices.

“Managing veterinary practice information, technology, and workflow is a time-consuming part of day-to-day operations,” said Covetrus senior vice president and president of Covetrus Global Software Services, Chris Dollar. “With Covetrus Connect, we are now providing veterinary professionals with more choices to use third-party technology solutions integrated with AVImark, ImproMed and eVetPractice via a secure, permissions-based integration platform to increase efficiencies in their practice, improve workflow, securely connect to partners and deliver better care.”

Covetrus Connect is transforming how technology solutions are built and delivered for the veterinary industry by supporting a vibrant developer community. Covetrus Connect currently supports more than 40 solution partners, including providers of prescription management, business intelligence and analytics, diagnostics, and appointment and pet health reminder services. The Covetrus Connect Marketplace offers innovators a secure means to integrate with Covetrus practice management systems. It simplifies the process of connecting partners through a standard API built on industry-leading data management and security practices.

“With more than 1,800 clinics, PetDesk is a trusted bridge between clinics and their clients, making data privacy and security paramount to our success,” said Taylor Cavanah, CEO, PetDesk. “That’s why we were early adopters of the Covetrus Connect Marketplace, and our partnership has proven integral to us delivering on our mission to extend the lives of pets.”

Covetrus Connect is the only authorized integration platform for Covetrus practice management systems. There are currently plans to introduce RxWorks® to the Covetrus Connect Marketplace later in 2019, with additional global software systems expected to be added in 2020 including RoboVet® and VisionVPM®.
