Digital technology continues to develop every day and helps us with multiple aspects of our daily lives. More options are available than ever before to help veterinarians with increased accuracy and increased convenience. No more stamps and trips to the post office, and in some cases automatic submission to the State Veterinarian's office are a few of the benefits of electronic options for CVI that utilize equipment you already have (Smartphones, tablets, computers). Below are some of the options that are available to accredited veterinarians in Colorado.
How do I get started?
Check out the options listed below and see which one works best for you. There are options for any situation, with or without internet access. Need a mobile app for your device? Check out AgView. Do you create most of your CVIs right from your practice computer? Maybe the eCVI is the solution for you.
What equipment do I need?
Most of the time there is a solution will work with the equipment you have. Web-based solutions can work on any device that can surf the internet (such as GVL, or VSPS). Don't have a smartphone or tablet? You can use the office computer to generate CVIs with our fillable pdf the eCVI. Want to use your iPhone, iPad or Android smartphone or tablet? AgView is a cross-platform app that works on these devices and automatically submits the CVI to our office. If you don't have cell coverage at the farm or ranch, no problem. The app will send the document once it is connected to the internet again.
Why should I use electronic CVI?
Electronic CVIs are faster to fill out after a short learning period and take away mistakes made from handwriting. They are more cost-effective to get to our office as you don't need to send a copy through the Postal Service or pay for the paper books of CVI. They reduce compliance errors as it is impossible to submit a partially filled out CVI through these options. They are also able to add any number of animals in groups or with individual IDs so that you won't need to write multiple CVI for a single animal movement.
