The new History recording area


The Horse History section is an extremely comprehensive area which can be analyzed in detail at any time. Records are stored by Date, History Category and Reason For Treatment. For anyone who wishes there is a optional further classification known as a Case record which basically allows you to group a number of History records together where you might be treating a Horse over a prolongued period for one condition. An example might be where a Horse has an injury which is ongoing requiring complex treatment and a record is required to show improvement over a period of time. This would be particularly useful if records were required for an Insurance company and would be accessible at the click of a button.

Of course if you were simply adding a Shoeing record for example, or did not require such fine detail then you can ignore this feature and the system will deal with this automatically for you. However it will always be there if required.

The History record itself is split into 10 areas and each again is recorded by Date and Category individually. In the case of Hoof work you can define work by individual Hoof and in the case of Dentists you can even define work by individual Teeth.

The areas covered are Hoof Measurements, Electronic Charting, Nutrition, Drugs, ELPO Charts, Digital Imaging / Video / Sound, Lab Reports, PDF Reports, Hoof Details, Tooth Work, Vaccinations and Boosters, Worming, SOAP (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, Plan) and Vital Signs. Of course not all areas will be available according to your Profession.

 

This is the Imaging area where you can add either still Digital images or Video (with Sound). However also note that you can also add Sound on it's own (Dictaphone) files. You can record as many images/sound files as you want and these can be recorded Online or Offline. Note that these work using "Native" software which means that they link direct to your device so they use the familar cameras of your particular device.

 

 

Here we show the standard Hoof recording capabilities for each hoof. The previous details are carried forward so you only have to change anything that is different this visit. The shoes are selected direct from the Inventory section.

 

 

Here we show the Hoof Measurement section with the various fields able to be recorded. Again the measurements from the previous visit will be shown so once again you will only need to show any changes on this visit.

 

 

This is the first of our Electronic Charts. This allows you to bring up an Electronic Chart over which you can "draw" various lines and shapes including entering text. The charts can be saved, printed and emailed. A future advanced function will be the ability to record work here which will then build an invoice automatically from the work recorded. There will also be the capability to add your own charts.

 

 

If you are an ELPO member there are a series of official ELPO charts you can use to enter measurements and transmit the data to the ELPO administrator for analysis.

 

 

The digital imaging section connects to your devices camera and allows you to use it to add digital images. The photos are embedded into the record so can be easily transmitted to the Cloud when synchronized and used in reports or for email purposes. Note, that by using Native software this utility can be used Offline as well as Online and will work on any device with a camera unlike applications that rely on a Web interface.

 

 

The Video section connects to your devices camera and allows you to use it to add video. The videos are embedded into the record so can be easily transmitted to the Cloud when synchronized and used email purposes. Note, that by using Native software this utility can be used Offline as well as Online and will work on any device with a camera unlike applications that rely on a Web interface.

 

 

As part of out Electronic Charting functionality we include various other charts that can be used to record details such as those shown above and below.

 

 

 

For the Equine Dentist Profession we provide a series of Dental Charts to choose from that can be used to record wave forms etc. Each Horse can have it's own Chart and Charts will be able to be added in future versions. A future feature will be the ability to drag and drop standard elements of work and formations such as rasping, hooks, ramps etc. and to build up an invoice from that.

 

 

For the Equine Dentist Profession we include the ability to record the history of Individual Teeth. Simply click a Tooth which then allows you to record a Series of Digital Images, Videos and/or Sound files for that Tooth.

 

 

For the Equine Veterinarian (or optionally for the other Professions) you can record details using the SOAP (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, Plan) methodology which is the Gold standard for record keeping in the medical profession.

 

 

Again for the Equine Veterinarian Profession (and optionally for the other Professions) you have the ability to record the vital signs at each visit to provide the ultimate in record keeping.

 

 

Finally there is the ability to add your own Charts in future versions an example of which we show you here. Just to show you that Equine Manager can record not just Horse information but other Species!!
