USDA Notes Progress on SECD

by | Dec 22, 2014 | News | 0 comments

The United States Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has noted its progress in addressing Swine Enteric Coronavirus Disease (SECD) since the issuing of the Federal Order six months ago that requires SECD reporting to federal and state animal health officials.One milestone in particular is the increase of tests that are submitted with a premises identification number (PIN). Only 20 percent of tests were being submitted with the proper premises identification number, and now that number continues to climb and is over 75 percent. Premises identification numbers are allowing more accurate monitoring of incidences and spread, which helps in learning how to contain the disease. With the GlobalVetLINK LabLINK HIMS™ Health Information Management System, PINs are easier than ever. The PIN feature makes it is easy to comply with the federal order and will help keep the number of tests being submitted with PINs rise.
