Data is at the backbone of what we do. It helps vets make more informed decisions on the farm and provide farmers with the knowledge they need to improve their farm practices. This data also provides the wider industry with insight and serves as a catalyst for improvement.
Data captured around farm animals is fragmented, disparate and incomplete. With an increase in technologies generating new data and important clinical vet data held in isolation, aggregation and drawing insights from this ever increasing body of data has never been more important.
At VetIMPRESS we bring farm animal data together in a powerful manner. The unique data curated and enriched within our platform is beneficial to the wider industry. It can help the industry sustain growth, improve efficiency and develop with an ever-demanding market; where traceability and sustainability are at the forefront of the consumers mind.
At VetIMPRESS, we provide the technology that allows farm vets to put in place the right permissions and controls to share and exchange the data with industry partners, in a way that benefits vet practices and farm clients the most.
Farming business and food production has changed enormously over the last 20 years. As a profession, we are fortunate to have adaptable, agile minded veterinary professionals who have made good decisions based on their experience and training. Imagine what those vets and practice directors could do if they were equipped with tools and insights to help them make decisions based on rich data? They could have much more impact and protect the things we are all interested in around animal health, animal welfare, human health and the sustainability of food production from animals and the environment.
“The goal is to turn data into information and information into insight.” - Carly Fiorina, former CEO, Hewlett Packard.
Sustainability is a key media topic relating to food producing animals in areas such as antimicrobial use, water use, soil quality, energy conservation, greenhouse gases and protecting human health. Increasing efficiency represents one of livestock production’s biggest challenges. The sector is faced with increasing demands to reduce each animal’s farm-to-fork ‘hoofprint’ while ensuring the quantity or quality of food produced is not sacrificed.
The data curated within VetIMPRESS impacts millions of lives in what we consume daily. Progressive practices can help farm clients navigate the pressures of sustainable food production and provide data to industry partners to help identify trends and improve the overall sustainability of the eco-system. Data from our platform is being used to guide both every day decisions made on the farm and also national reporting in areas such as antimicrobial resistance, showing the fantastic job farmers and vets are doing in protecting resources and human health through being the guardians of animal health and welfare.
Total farm to fork traceability in the dairy and beef industry is becoming an increasingly hot topic. Impacting the entire food supply chain, from producers to processors, wholesalers, distributors and retailers, the industry needs to demonstrate food and drink has been responsibly produced to the highest of standards. Food passing through the supply chain needs to be traceable, right back to the farms and farmer where the cows were reared or milked.
The VetIMPRESS platform can assist vets, their farm clients and stakeholders in this area.
In partnership with our practice clients, our platform is currently helping stakeholders with an interest in veterinary and farm data, such as government and farming bodies, nutritionists, genetics, pharmaceutical players, processors and retailers, to understand trends and make strategic decisions. Using deep domain expertise and proprietary technology, we bring data together in a way that gains valuable insights into each part of the food processing chain.
