Covetrus Integrates Telemedicine Capabilities Across Its Global Technology Portfolio

Share

Covetrus (NASDAQ: CVET), a global leader in animal-health technology and services, announced today that it is embedding secure video teleconferencing capabilities across the company’s global suite of practice information management systems (PIMS), client communications, and prescription management solutions. This new functionality provides a seamless and easily accessible way for veterinarians to service their clients and patients remotely using their existing Covetrus technology solutions.

“It is inspiring to see the veterinary community in action as they work even harder to support and provide care to their clients during the COVID-19 pandemic. To further help, we directed our efforts into fast-tracking a product extension for telemedicine that we expect to be even more impactful in the current environment,” said Georgia Wraight, president, Covetrus Global Technology Solutions. “By making this functionality available across our suite of technology solutions, those that our customers already know and use daily in their practice, we hope to ease and enhance the ways in which veterinarians are able to maintain care with their clients throughout this crisis … and after.”

To support the veterinary community during the COVID-19 pandemic, all users of Covetrus technology platforms will have free access to video conferencing capabilities, until further notice. Starting today, users of the Rapport™ client communications product have access to video conferencing, further building on its two-way, omni-channel messaging via email, text, and now video. In the coming weeks, Covetrus will also launch these secure video capabilities directly into its PIMS, including AVImark®, eVetPractice® and ImproMed®, as well as its prescription management platform. International platforms, including RxWorks in Australia and RoboVet in the U.K., will also gain this advanced functionality.

“The Rapport client communication system is already a critical tool for us to stay in touch with our clients about their appointments and care,” said Alinda Higgins, CVT, manager, East Lake Hospital for Animals, Ltd. “With video conferencing, we’ll not only be able to maintain communication, but make it easier for us to actively deliver care for our patients. It's the next best thing to having the patient physically in front of you. During times when everything seems more complex, Covetrus has come through to make patient care safe and more convenient for our clients and their pets.”

Covetrus will offer user training for this new capability along with their series of educational webinars aimed at navigating the COVID-19 pandemic. For more information about the new video capability now available in Rapport, and to keep updated on the timing of upcoming releases into the Covetrus suite of technology, go to https://get.covetrus.com/rapport-telemedicine.

European Commission Grants Marketing Authorisation for DARZALEX®▼(daratumumab) Subcutaneous Formulation for all Currently Approved Daratumumab Intravenous Formulation Indications4.6.2020 17:00:00 EESTPress release

The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson announced today that the European Commission (EC) has granted marketing authorisation for DARZALEX®▼ (daratumumab) subcutaneous (SC) formulation for the treatment of adult patients with multiple myeloma (MM).

Moody’s Analytics Forecast: Resurgence of COVID-19 Could Cause Global Economic Depression4.6.2020 15:00:00 EESTPress release

According to the Moody’s Analytics baseline economic forecast, real global GDP will fall by 4.5% this year as a result of COVID-19. Our base case for the US suggests that it will take until mid-decade for the economy to return to full-employment. Mark Zandi, Chief Economist at Moody’s Analytics, describes the outlook in a new paper, Handicapping the Paths for the Pandemic Economy . “COVID-19 has caused massive damage to the global economy. Quickly reopening economies will boost growth by unleashing pent-up demand, but will also raise the specter of a re-intensification of COVID-19 and another economic downdraft, which could lead to a worldwide depression. We construct our economic forecasts to help market participants navigate this daunting uncertainty and make better decisions,” said Mr. Zandi. The Moody’s Analytics baseline economic forecast represents our view of the most likely trajectory for the global economy. The baseline forecast is part of a set of 12 forecast scenarios, updat
