The Timeless Vet Drug Index - A New Evidence-based Veterinary Drug Formulary App For IPhone And IPad
11th September, 2013 21h42
Timeless Veterinary Systems Inc. recently announced the release of their much anticipated Timeless Vet Drug Index - an evidence-based mobile drug formulary app set to launch on iPhone and iPad in July 2013. The Timeless Vet Drug Index is the result of a yearlong collaborative effort between Timeless Veterinary Systems and three well known experts: Dr. Etienne Côté (Clinical Veterinary Advisor), Dr. Stephen Ettinger (Textbook of Veterinary Internal Medicine) and Dr. Wayne Schwark.
The creation of the Timeless Vet Drug Index came out of a desire to give busy practicing clinicians an extremely convenient and high quality drug resource, and the realization that veterinarians are largely underserved in the mobile app world. In order to bring their app to life, Timeless brought three of the most trusted names in veterinary medicine together with a dedicated team of software engineers and research assistants. Over the past two years the team devoted thousands of hours to planning, research, and development before the project was complete.
According to Dr. Etienne Côté, the goal was to incorporate strengths into the app that would be most useful to busy practitioners. "Basically, we wanted to have access to information that flows in a way that would be really fast and practical for a hectic day in the hospital. We worked hard on the Vet Drug Index to make it something that our friends and colleagues would like to use, and we tried to build in the things that we wanted or wished for but we couldn't find in any other resource."
This evidence-based drug formulary was written from the ground up to contain only the most relevant drug information with full link-outs to PubMed abstracts and a visual evidence-based ranking system to evaluate the strength of the evidence. The Timeless Vet Drug Index is also loaded with helpful features that a veterinarian needs, including built in calculators, tips and tricks from the authors called "clinical pearls", detailed expected effects, and relevant clinical pharmacological information for optimizing treatment plans and patient care. In addition, the engineers at Timeless have taken some the very best experiences from the apps that people use every day to create a level of intuitiveness and convenience that simply can't be accomplished in a book.
Joey Seaman, of Timeless Veterinary Systems, believes their customers will appreciate all the little things that went into making the Vet Drug Index. "We know that veterinarians rarely use smartphones in their day to day clinical practice and we want to change that. We hope the Vet Drug Index will become a major time saver and a trusted clinical tool that veterinarians will not let leave their side."
Leading up to its release, Timeless is offering a free trial and discounted subscription by making a reservation on the Timeless Vet Drug Index website. In addition, special offers will be made available for veterinary students and veterinary interns around the world.
