The missing pet problem is ultimately a data problem.
Microchip scanning needs to be part of the daily routine for all veterinarians and shelters to resolve the missing pet problem. To make scanning the standard for all veterinarians and shelters, the industry needs to be standardized, but that is only one piece to the puzzle. The more significant issue is the data problem. To resolve the data problem, a better system of data management is needed, and data is required with the pet owners consent.
Pet owners ultimately want to be ensured they will be notified when their pets microchip is scanned and that their pets medical records can be communicated in a timely matter.
If a microchip can be read — let alone detected — multiple registries need to be visited, and the microchip ID needs to be manually entered at each registry until a match is found. Then that registry needs to be called. Calls are often placed on hold for long periods, and veterinarians do not have the time staff or resources to accommodate the overall process. It is much easier to assume the person that brought in the stolen pet is the rightful owner.
Big Data in Veterinary Health Care
Peeva is transforming the veterinary healthcare ecosystem by creating pathways for continuous communication and data exchange for the very first time in veterinary care.
Peeva is resolving the data problem to find and track pets to bring them home to their families as quickly as possible.
The veterinary field is an extremely fragmented industry and lags behind other industries technologically. Veterinarians lack access to raw data and an ability to pull it all together.
What is “Big Data?
”BIG DATA is a pretty straightforward adjective applied to large data sets that are so large and complex that traditional data-processing software applications are inadequate to deal with them.
To resolve the missing pet problem, a better system of data organization is needed. Peeva leverages big data like never before to resolve the complex problems associated with pet theft and veterinary health care.
When connecting the healthcare experience for pet owners and veterinary service providers, the path from promise to practice is complex. Each facet of the system requires the right digital foundation. To increase patient engagement, systems need to be simple, unifying, efficient, and pet owner privacy is of the utmost importance. To adequately support providers and practitioners, systems must offer accessibility to resources, scalability of services, optimization of gathered intelligence, and pet owners need to offer their consent every step along the way. Yet the shift toward a transformative healthcare ecosystem is not without challenges, most of the aforementioned digital solutions have been developed individually, resolving potential integration and interoperability issues.
Therefore, the potential of a fully connected healthcare experience is certainly bright and attainable, the challenges have been acknowledged and potential pitfalls have been addressed.
For pet owners, it’s about ensuring their pet’s microchips will be scanned and read, for our veterinary partners it’s about making the transfer of information easier and access to it instantaneous.
The future of pet healthcare lies in the seamless integration of microchip identification and medical records systems.
Matching pet medical records with RFID data has many practical benefits. Integrating this RFID data with existing EMR systems into Peeva allows for automation of standard operating procedure internally and externally- saving significant time and resources. This will also enable Veterinarian practices to manage mountains of internal records and have access to medical records from millions of RFID tags.
After gathering data on the front end, the back-end processes can then utilize a hosted business approach to provide global visibility of medical records and pet theft through an easy to use web-based user interface.
Peeva provides comprehensive solutions that allow for scalability, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness. We have been working closely with our veterinary partners to identify and support seamless integration and deployment in the fragmented veterinary space. Peeva has identified the most appropriate solutions when it comes to cost, performance, security, and manageability. By conducting comprehensive evaluations and analysis of a client’s business and technical goals, Peeva’s familiarity with our partner’s environments and challenges place us in a unique position as we can guarantee a better experience for all.
Veterinary data and the Internet of things
Big data and the IoT work in conjunction. Data extracted from IoT devices provides a mapping of device interconnectivity. Such mappings have been used by the media industry, companies and governments to more accurately target their audience and increase media efficiency. IoT is also increasingly adopted as a means of gathering sensory data, and this sensory data can be used in medicine.
By leveraging big data and analytics, Peeva plans to improve veterinary healthcare by providing personalized medicine and prescriptive analytics, clinical risk intervention and predictive analytics, waste and care variability reduction, automated external and internal reporting of patient data, standardized medical terms, and patient registries from fragmented point solutions.
The level of data generated within healthcare systems is not trivial. With the added adoption of mHealth, eHealth and wearable technologies the volume of data will continue to increase. This includes electronic health record data, imaging data, patient-generated data, sensor data, and other forms of difficult to process data. There is now an even greater need for such environments to pay greater attention to data and information quality and this presents a great opportunity for us.
Pet Patient portal
Veterinary Healthcare today means multiple hospitals, inpatient and outpatient sites, pharmacies, pet insurance agencies—and millions of customers. To deliver services, many are choosing to upgrade patient portals to allow more efficiency in the delivery of services. By combining disparate websites, apps, and communications into a single portal, Peeva is able to provide the information veterinary providers need quickly and easily.
For veterinary clinics and hospitals, relaying patient data in a secure and compliant manner is paramount. Our cloud-based database provides an easy way for different players in the veterinary healthcare ecosystem to connect directly with one another by making the transfer of vital pet medical information instantaneous. Peeva is able to offer support for critical offerings and improve functionality through faster, better services, facilitated searches, and complimentary content. The end result is improved performance and lower costs to the organization.
Cloud-enabled patient convenience
Many pet owners are familiar with the difficulties of finding and scheduling a vet appointment. Peeva enables pet owners to schedule appointments on digital platforms, decreasing both the time it takes to see a veterinarian and time wasted on the part of veterinarian practices —simultaneously. This cloud-enabled pet owner convenience also makes appointment scheduling scalable.
Peeva accelerates advances in veterinary health care
Peeva focuses on helping veterinarians to deliver efficient, quality care to pet patients by reducing the time needed to run existing workloads and by providing access to useful analytics capabilities. These services help veterinary hospitals and clinics move faster, lower IT costs, and scale.

Peeva will provide item-level visibility and detailed information on who updated what type of medical record when it was updated, and where it was updated... again with reporting and instant notification. Only rightful pet owners can change contact information and transfer ownership.
Veterinarian practices will benefit by:
Notably, lower IT costs,
The elimination of costly infrastructure requirements,
More frequent technology updates,
Frequent upgrades opposed to adaptive IT costs.
Faster overall rollout with a quicker path to ROI.
The ability to instantly pull up medical records instantaneously from external sources also means fewer phone calls, less faxing, less manual searching, and less clerical staff to perform those functions which will reduce costs
