Strategic Plan Alignment: Disaster Preparedness and Response
Working closely with US food animal industries to create tools, technologies, collaborations and education trainings to provide solutions that sustain animal health and mitigate animal diseases.
The Institute for Infectious Animal Diseases (IIAD), in partnership with the Texas Center for Applied Technology, a part of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, developed a mobile Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI) application to support veterinary practitioners submitting animal health certificate records from the field. The app, AgConnect® mCVI, expands the toolbox of capabilities available to veterinary practitioners – allowing them to easily submit electronic animal health certificates to fulfill regulatory requirements for documenting interstate animal movements, or store that information within the application for forwarding when connectivity becomes available. This real-time information sharing is an alternative to email or web-based systems and helps improve the timelines of communication between veterinarians and state animal health offices by supporting certificate submission from the field.
