As EAP has evolved in recent years, the potential to sophisticate these programs and classify them into managed healthcare organizations is better than it's ever been. [TOPIC] Currently, EAP is standardized under the guidelines set forth by equine accrediting organizations, but no EAP center has been identified and accredited as a healthcare organization. [IDENTIFIED PROBLEM] This project provides a grant proposal and detailed business plan for an EAP called V.E.T.S. [RESULT] EAP can be successfully managed and delivered as an accessible, affordable and quality healthcare organization. [OUTCOME]
