New App gives users unlimited access to NOAH compendium
In a bid to give users easy access to their compendium data at any time, NOAH (National Office of Animal Health) has launched a new app at this week’s London Vet Show, which is now available for both Apple and Android phones.
The unique app, which will be updated frequently, gives users the ability to find vital information on the over 1000 animal medicine listings included on the compendium website; with the complete datasheets available for viewing.
Another exciting feature to the new app is the ability to scan datamatrix barcodes on veterinary medicinal product packaging to take you straight to important product information. You can also search by medication, manufacturer or GTIN.
“The NOAH Compendium is the recognised industry reference, and it is essential we fully utilise the information offered in the compendium with modern technology, whilst protecting the integrity and respect that it holds,” explains Dawn Howard, NOAH’s Chief Executive.
“The website, which we relaunched earlier this year, has had over 8.5 million views to date. We feel this app serves as a great addition to this modern method of accessing data – meaning users are no longer reliant on internet access to obtain the information they need.
“As an organisation, we will continue to embrace new technologies to ensure animal medicine is used correctly and responsibly in the UK,” Dawn concludes. “The launch of this new app goes towards ensuring all those who prescribe or use animal medicines have access to the latest technical information available for companion and farm animals when they need it.”
