Pawprint: Electronic Health Records for Pets
Organized by: Emily Dong
Event Name: Women Startup Challenge
EVENT DATE May 29, 2015
Pet record compliance is a huge pain for pet owners and pet services businesses. A large percentage of the 100,000+ pet services are mom & pop shops who are largely understaffed. They are wasting time dealing with pet records in addition to losing valuable clients over it. Pet owners are forced to maintain their own copy of paper records or fill out forms at each pet business to recreate their pet's profile - much like the first time a person goes to a doctor's office.
What is Pawprint?
Pawprint is a platform for the $20b pet services industry, centered around pet identity started by two female developers, Emily Dong & Jennifer Yip. We created a proprietary way to retrieve and digitalize official medical information from your veterinarian for pet owners. No more faxing records, filling out forms and missing vaccine updates.
For pet owners, we built the Pawprint app (available on iOS & Android), a fast and easy way to get your pet's official medical records and keep track of events such as when you gave Bowser flea medication or the time Apple had an allergic reaction. Now you can own your pet's identity and information. http://bit.ly/1Difzms
For pet service owners, we built Pawprint for business, professional software designed to help you manage all your clients, access key information about their pets and create an online presence. (coming soon)
Our two services are connected so information is not duplicated and you have an accurate history for your pet.
