The Institute for Infectious Animal Diseases (IIAD), a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Center of Excellence, in partnership with the Texas Center for Applied Technology (TCAT), a part of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, have developed a mobile Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI) application to support veterinary practitioners submitting animal health certificate records from the field.
IIAD’s iCVI strives to expand the toolbox of capabilities available to veterinary practitioners, allowing them to easily submit electronic animal health certificates, or store that information within the application for forwarding when data connectivity becomes available. This real-time information sharing is an alternative to email or web-based systems, and helps improve communication between veterinarians and state animal health offices by supporting certificate submission from the field.
iCVI is currently being piloted in eight states with several additional states looking to start their own pilot programs. During the pilot, IIAD will work closely with SAHOs and practicing veterinarians to refine and optimize this newly developed mobile application as needed. As part of future efforts, IIAD intends to expand iCVI to operate on other mobile platforms.
