First integrated pet diabetes management software in the works
Digitail aims to create this software to help pet owners better manage a companion animal’s diabetes.
Digitail—an all-in-one veterinary software for veterinary practices—is developing the first diabetes software expert task force to address the constantly increasing number of diabetic pets.
Diabetes is a complicated disease that requires at-home and in-clinic management. Success rates are significantly affected by the pet owner’s understanding of diabetes and compliance with veterinary advice. They must maintain daily logs of blood glucose levels, insulin dosage, appetite, thirst, urine, and additional clinical signs.1 Therefore, Digitail is is releasing this tool to tailor to a pet's individual needs.
According to a company release, Digitail’s Diabetes tool is focused on 3 main pillars1:
- Education: Through its Learning Space from the Digitail Pet Parent App, pet owners obtain access to diabetes-specific tools selected by veterinarians and pet care experts.
- Compliance: The Diabetes tool includes a custom schedule categorized by 3 simple steps for at-home diabetes management. It features reminders, daily activity summaries, progress analysis, and intelligent insights.
- Collaboration: The veterinarian is updated as the information from the app is available in real-time in the PIMS, and they can assign tasks remotely. The pet owner is urged to regularly liaise with their veterinarian and adjust the treatment plan as needed.
The Digitail team aims to scale the solution to various chronic conditions with complex management in the future, according to the release.1
“Technology saves lives, and sometimes it is just as easy as facilitating information and creating a routine for caretakers. We’ve fully embraced the hybrid pet care model. We believe that pets with chronic diseases and their parents, together with the veterinary community, deserve the tools to maximize their success rates,” the Digitail team expressed.1
