Pets in the Clouds: CyberlinkASP Cloudifies Veterinary Records
January 16th, 2013 By: Jason Verge
It’s not just your data that’s moving to the cloud. Now your pet’s records can be cloud-enabled as well.
CyberlinkASP has entered into a partnership with Animal Intelligence Software, Inc. to provide cloud-based software to manage veterinary practices. CyberlinkASP is providing turnkey virtual private cloud and Citrix-based technologies to support mission critical IT for Animal Intelligence.
Animal Intelligence Software is an Electronic Medical Records that puts pet care into the cloud. A veterinarian can now set up office records management to run in the cloud if they have an internet connection, instead of setting up hardware and software at their office. Cloud computing is a boon to these types of systems, making them accessible to a wider audience, and making managing a practice generally easier. Records are accessible on any device, so a doctor can pull out an iPad for reference. The software can also be hosted on-site, but the portability and accessibility of the cloud setup has more appeal.
“CyberlinkASP’s approach is seamless and turnkey,” said Dr. Thomas L. Driver, President and CEO of AI Software. “The ability to access our desktop and software from anywhere, any time was powerful. We conducted a rigorous review before selecting CyberlinkASP.”
Why Veterinary Records in the Cloud?
Pets are awesome and they mean a lot to their owners. I’d jump in front of a car for my French Bulldog. I’m not kidding.
Keeping records in the cloud means that these records are safe, portable and accessible, enabling better pet care overall. The same benefits of storing digital health records for people can be achieved by putting pet info in the cloud, and there isn’t nearly as much red tape and hurdles with pets as there are with humane medical records.
Software like AI helps startup and smaller practices keep better records, and makes it easier for those records to be accessed from multiple clinics. It helps keep pets up to date, providing automated prescription reminders, helping the doctors calculate doses, and much more.
AI Software is a doctor centered electronic medical record (EMR) practice management system that increases the profits of most practices approximately 30 percent by reducing missing charges alone.
Specialized Software Systems Find a Home in the Cloud
This is another case of software finding a home in the cloud, with CyberlinkASP serving as the provider that brought something useful into the cloud world.

Animal Intelligence Software is the premier provider in their space, and we are honored to partner with them.”
