We are delighted to announce the launch of the ‘Advanced Asilomar’ reporting system now available within the PetPoint application. The new advanced module replaces the existing ‘Asilomar Accord’ module introduced in 2006.
A key differentiating factor between the PetPoint Animal Management application and other traditional client server based software applications is that PetPoint enables users to continue with their existing method of reporting while also allowing them to report in the standard format set out under the Asilomar Accord. This functionality is used by administrators to report their data on a monthly, quarterly and annual basis easily and automatically.
Advanced Asilomar is designed to support the more detailed variations of the Asilomar Accord standard, as required by groups such as Maddie’s Fund. However, the Advanced Asilomar system requires no additional work by PetPoint users, provided that they have completed their original mapping of their organization’s unique Intake and Outcome values.
PetPoint users will notice that each intake and outcome screen has been updated to include a new field, called “Asilomar Status.” The choices available are: Healthy, Treatable-Rehabilitatable, Treatable-Manageable, and Unhealthy-Untreatable. Users may assign the appropriate value to each animal when it arrives and when it departs. These values may be updated and tracked throughout each animal’s stay at the organization, therefore providing an accurate profile of the animal while it is under the care of the animal welfare organization.
The animal welfare community in North America has struggled for many years with the fact that each organization tracks its statistics differently. However, as the number of PetPoint users continues to grow (813 licensed users to date), animal welfare organizations are able to access meaningful statistics which can now be published and that give an accurate representation of the state of the industry at any given time. Statistics are also now being released to PetPoint users every other week through the PetPoint Journal – Please call the PetPoint team if you would like your name added to the list.
Existing PetPoint users can contact the help desk for assistance in setting up Advanced Asilomar.
If your organization is not using PetPoint yet we encourage you to call the PetPoint team at 1-866-630-7387 to find out how your organization can benefit from this free animal management system. PetPoint gives the animal welfare community more time and money to what it does best – save lives.
