The better AniCura can leverage high quality data, the better pet care will be provided. Every entry in the patient records generate data, but the potential of the data is limited by the quality of the data input.
“AniCura have started taking actions to improve the quality of our data, because that will in the long run improve the quality of our care”
AniCura recently investigated the breed list in some of the markets and there were many ways of writing the breed Labrador retriever.
In 2017 AniCura started taking actions to improve the quality of data, in order to improve the quality of care. In 2020, the Country Veterinary managers decided on a unified breed list within AniCura and adopted SNOMED* as the reference for medical terminology.
Quality of data matters. Although not immediately noticeable, high quality data is instrumental in shaping the future of veterinary care.
*SNOMED Clinical Terms is a systematically organized computer processable collection of medical terms providing codes, terms, synonyms and definitions used in clinical documentation and reporting.
