If your practice’s treatment records are incomplete, who knows what happened in that exam room? Or how much money you’re losing because someone forgot to record a charge?

AAHA Press asked our members what would help them practice better medicine. And you told us you wanted a way to keep better treatment records. Clear, consistent records where nothing gets missed.

We heard you, so we designed a standardized treatment sheet based on input from those who would use them in practice—from veterinarians to technicians to practice managers. The result is an intuitive, comprehensive form that includes:

  • Detailed fields organized in such a way that nothing gets missed
  • A format that allows for clearer communication between the admitting veterinarian and technicians, and between all medical staff during shift changes
  • Checkboxes that ensure charges get recorded daily and sheets get scanned into your practice’s practice management system

It even includes a pain score—something you’ve likely never seen on a treatment sheet before.

Best of all, this form helps your practice meet the AAHA standard that refers to maintaining records in such a way that any veterinarian may be able to proceed with the continuity of care and treatment of that patient.

Start ensuring the completeness of your patient records by ordering yours at aaha.org/treat.
