Britton’s Wise Computers, Incorporated (BWCi) is a partially women-owned & operated business which has been in existence since 1993 and was developed for the primary purpose of providing fluid technology in the animal health community. BWCi developed and implemented an electronic animal health system that has been operational for more than years. It exceeds the one-dimensional medical record requirements of a “human” system by addressing the concerns of multiple species, breeds; pharmaceuticals which are breed and weight dependent; diseases and disease control which are breed and/or species specific; animal dependencies such as ownership and transfer, medical equipment connectivity and more. The final system can be provided as an “out-of-the-box” hospital management system for the average veterinary office.
BWCi moved on to project-oriented technology solutions in 2000 and has completed 2 major and 4 minor projects in the past seven years. These projects range from scheduling in the largest animal hospital in the US to a web-based ordering system for pet products in the private sector. We use standard project management techniques to identify concerns and solutions, segment project into attainable benchmarks, test and reevaluate. Depending on the nature of the contract, user groups provide initial input or valuable feedback; Critical documents and reports are analyzed early in the planning; And a wish list is developed to provide ultimate satisfaction for the end product.
Our staff is small with extensive experience in veterinary or medical offices, programming in the private sector, technology consulting for both government and national associations, and teaching. With multiple projects in our background, we are experienced in temporary growth, outsourcing and provide work exchange credits with our local technology college.
When not in the project mode, we focus on new technologies and connectivity. One such technology allows the use of a “Pen” to write on specialty paper. The results load directly from pen into an animal’s comment field. You can imagine the benefits of such a pen in a field operation. We have recently developed relationships with complimenting industries like “Pet Portals” which allows clients to access their pet’s information via an internet portal to their vet’s office – even allowing them to schedule an appointment remotely. In addition, our base system was designed in a Windows 95 world using Paradox. The world has shifted towards the internet and we are answering by moving our successful application into the Microsoft .NET framework. The shift began September 2008 and is being implemented at our largest client hospitals.
While we specialize in technology integration for veterinary practices, we provide a intimate partnership with our clients, to help them smoothly transition to the best practice management system.
