Data structure – boring now, important in the future

OK – it may not sound important now but the underlying data structure of your PMS is what ensures the long term reliability of your data.

Global identifiers are the key. Client IDs and Patient IDs form these identifiers in a PMS. Without them, key searches may need to link multiple levels of data. It makes 3rd party integration hard, makes changing patients to a new owner harder than it should be, makes small data losses on one level cascade to losses across the data structure.

PetBooqz has these global identifiers in every single relevant table.
