IDEXX introduces paperless lab test ordering
From tomorrow, 22nd October, practices will be able to use a new function of the IDEXX VetConnect™ PLUS software to request external laboratory tests at the click of a button, and without the need to complete paper requisition forms.
The additional functionality of the existing VetConnect PLUS technology will simplify and speed up the process of carrying out analytical tests.
“The user interface will now allow practitioners to search for tests by name, code, component or by a number of pre-populated frequently used, popular tests, making it very easy to find and request the appropriate test,” says Simon Wootton, UK CAG Marketing Manager at IDEXX.
“Once a test is selected, the practitioner is presented with a range of relevant additional information. This includes sampling requirements, possible interferences and diagnostic usage indications, all designed to help avoid some of the common pitfalls with test choice and sampling techniques. Patient data is also stored, so only needs to be entered once.
“Another feature is the ability to edit the order and add additional tests while the sample is in transit, if these are required based on the clinical presentation,” adds Simon.
VetConnect PLUS is free-to-use technology and part of the IDEXX philosophy of delivering innovative solutions for practitioners to help improve animal health.
