Wellness Plan Improvements

In this first line of planned releases to improve your wellness plan productivity, we are introducing a new area to view historical wellness plans that have been previously assigned to your patients. Easily view high-level plan details throughout your patient's history as well as an expanded view of plan items included at the time of the plan.


Telemedicine Phase 2

Three new telemedicine features are introduced to enhance your virtual visit appointment workflow.

Virtual Visit Email Template

You can now customize your virtual visit email template! From email template section, set an email template as virtual visit by selecting "Is Virtual Visit Template". When this option is selected for a new email template, an example email content is generated with virtual visit merge fields. You can update the content or enter your own. 

There are new merge fields available for virtual visit email template: 
%virtualvisitappt% - virtual visit date and time
%virtualvisiturl% - virtual visit participant link
%virtualvisitpassword% - virtual visit password
Once a virtual visit email template is created, it is available for selection from virtual visit email.

SMS reminder

With this update, you can send SMS reminder for your virtual visit through your integrated provider, i.e., MessageMedia or Rapport. If your practice does not have SMS integration enabled, you will be able to send SMS for your virtual visit very soon. Please stay tuned.
To send a SMS reminder for a virtual visit appointment, locate the appointment from your practice calendar and right/left click, select Virtual Visit > SMS
SMS window will open. You can select an existing phone number for a client or add new. Select Send to send SMS.

Virtual Visit appointment report

When generating a new Appointment report, you can choose to include only virtual visit appointments. This report is useful as a usage report or can be used to capture the list of virtual visits at the beginning of the day.
The use of the telemedicine feature involves no additional contract. There will be no charge to any customer for this feature, it is included with your current eVetPractice subscription. In the future, the telemedicine feature will continue to be available at no cost for all customers on the Standard/Premium tiers. If you are a customer that is still on the 'old' eVetPractice pricing, it will also continue to be included in your subscription.
