The event presents the cutting-edge of veterinary medicine, focusing on technological innovations and ideas advancing the future of the profession. A collaboration of the North American Veterinary Community, Veterinary Innovation Council and Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, the Summit features keynote speakers, panel discussions and breakout sessions. A highlight is the popular startup pitch presentation, at which founders of select emergent veterinary companies give a seven-minute talk about their business and field audience questions.
The Petriage telemedicine platform’s symptom analysis tool, developed through artificial intelligence, gives pet owners a real-time recommendation regarding the urgency and need of their pet’s symptoms and enables them to seek medical care for their pet from their vet. Following the algorithmic recommendation provided by Petriage, clients can request to interact with a vet during set telemedicine hours and, if necessary, later at the vet’s office.
Also, clients can upload text, pictures and video via instant messaging within the app, and this provides useful information to the vet, ensures continuous care and averts unnecessary pet emergency room visits.
In January, Petriage and WellHaven Pet Health, a leading veterinary health management company based in Vancouver, Wash., announced a veterinary telemedicine partnership under which WellHaven will implement Petriage’s platform in its 40 current hospitals with plans to expand to 150 hospitals within three years.
