How do I send required patient information to Dyrehelseportalen?

When administering registered medicine to animals, you are obliged to register it with Dyrehelseportalen (DHP). Animana offers the ability to send any medication you used directly through to Dyrehalseportalen. This article will explain how to send information from the herd file to Dyrehelseportalen.

Before you start

  • If you are new to using Dyrehelseportalen in Animana – you need to make sure that it is set up correctly in your Animana account. First ask Dyrehelseportalen for your PIM-credentials, then contact the Animana Customer Support team with a request to add these details to your Animana account. Along with activating the plugin, they will also ensure you can fully utilise the Dyrehelseportalen plugin.
  • Note that only users with the «Brukertype» set to «Veterinær» will be able to send these details. This can be set up by going to   > Generelle Innstillinger > Brukeradministrasjon, selecting a user and change the «Brukertype» field.
  • Veterinarian users need to have an «HPR» number listed on their account. This can be added by browsing to   > Generelle Innstillinger > Brukeradministrasjon. Select a user and add the number in the «HPR» field.
  • Every client that has a herd with registered medicine applied, or where it will be applied to needs to have a 10-character «Produsentnummer» filled in the «Kundeinformasjon» tab before any data can be sent.
  • Note that certain products need to have the «Tilbakeholdningsperiode» added before it can be sent to DHP. This can be done by going to  > Produkter > Produkter > Select a product > and clicking on the Tilbakeholdningsperiode tab, or alternatively the withdrawal time can also be added when adding the product to a patient file.

Step-by-step instructions

  1. If you are sending a product for a herd file that only has one animal, please proceed with step 2 and 3 below, if not please skip to step 4.
    The «Antall dyr» can be found in the «Flokkdata» tab.

  2. First, we have to make sure that the herd name is correct. Open the «Flokkdata» tab for the patient/herd.
  3. If the «Antall dyr» field in the «Flokkdata»  tab is only 1, please note that the naming must adhere to a special format:
    • When the selected species is Cow, the format should be 12345678-1234.
    • When the selected species is Sheep, the format should be 12345-1234567 or 1234-12345678.
    • When the selected species is Goat, the format should be 12345-1234567 or 1234-12345678.
    • For any other species, you may enter a value up to 50 characters.
  4. Now open the «Flokkjournal»
  5. Add a product to the herd.
