Electronic Service for Recording Equine Treatments and Procedures
InCompass Solutions announced the launch of EquiTAPS, a free service that enables users to submit veterinary treatment and procedure records to racing authorities for horses in their care and to give authorized parties in other jurisdictions access to those records.
EquiTAPS satisfies reporting requirements as set forth by the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority (HISA) and will accept records submitted by covered persons as defined by HISA, including trainers and veterinarians. When required by HISA’s regulations, treatment and procedure information entered into EquiTAPS will be automatically forwarded to HISA.
“We are excited to offer EquiTAPS, which will assist horsemen and veterinarians of all racing breeds to keep track of horses in their care while working in compliance with HISA, which has jurisdiction over Thoroughbreds,” said Chris Dobbins, senior vice president of InCompass. “We believe this service provides a bridge between horsemen, racetracks, and HISA for the welfare of the racehorse.”
Regulatory veterinarians and racing authorities who would like access to EquiTAPS should contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Trainers and veterinarians are encouraged to create a free account. Individuals with a username and password through hisaus.org can use the same login information for EquiTAPS. If they do not already have an account with HISA, users should visit equitaps.com to set up an account with EquiTAPS for access under their racing jurisdiction.
