Review of Farm Vet Systems' Data and Processes for Antimicrobial Usage Surveillance

  • Massey, Jon (Principal Investigator)

Project Details


An in-depth review of Farm Vet Systems (FVS)'s data handling systems and processes, development processes and culture was conducted for the Veterinary Medicines Directorate.

A meeting was between Farm Vet Systems (FVS) and the University of Bristol (UoB) at FVS’s offices, 27 High St, Moneymore, Magherafelt on 7th September 2017. UoB was represented by Jon Massey, PhD student in clinical veterinary science; FVS was represented by George Brownlee, Chief Executive Officer, Barry McRory and Keiran ?, database and frontend developers respectively.
The purpose of this meeting was for UoB to gain an in-depth understanding of FVS’s systems and processes pertaining to loading and processing of data from farm vet practice management systems (PMS), and to conduct a summary review of FVS’s software and quality processes. This work was conducted at the request of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) and the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD) as part of a contract for FVS to supply AHDB and VMD with surveillance data on the prescription and sale of antimicrobial products in the dairy cattle sector. The scope of this work is limited to the systems and processes pertinent to this surveillance data.
