Computerisation - preparing to go live
  1. Martin Barrow

    Martin Barrow graduated from Edinburgh in 1984. In 1986 he became a partner in what is now a 12-vet mixed practice in Suffolk. His interest in practice management and computers led to the formation of AT Veterinary Systems of which he is a director.


IN an earlier article Martin Barrow discussed the preliminary stages of practice computerisation, from making the commitment to the change through to choosing the right system and supplier (In Practice, September 1995, pp 384– 388). In this article he takes things a stage further. The configuration and installation of the computer system are dealt with, as are the procedures necessary to convert an assortment of equipment and software into an efficient management system of real benefit to the practice.
