SERO Veterinary Medical Record

For some time I have been interested in upgrading my medical record keeping. As a 100% equine

practice with both hospital and ambulatory facilities, I was keen to get a system I could access both

at the hospital, on calls and at home. A cloud based system was a given. I am not a geek, but I sure

wanted to get records from my “smart” phone.

I use Quickbooks and this has also gone online. I wanted to be able to have a better record system

that would complement that billing system. I actually went to the AAEP convention in 2011 looking

for a system that would allow me to access and create medical records from a phone, tablet or

computer. There were none that appealed to me. They were all “going” to be able to do this or

very impressed and confident that it works. We have had locums come in and it takes them just a

few minutes to learn the system and to be able to see old medical records. They have been very

I wanted to store lab reports and do ongoing scripts. I wanted to be able to send a bill to the clinic

so that the bill was current in my mind and I didn’t forget to charge for some items.

I have also found that using my phone to dictate the record eliminates a step in my busy life.

I hate to return to the clinic to do medical records. My nurses are trained to grab my phone when

we return to the car and enter records and pictures while I dictate. It is done when I get back.

I can put any digital images in including radiographs and ultrasound images or videos. We are

currently working on a special application for reproduction.
