Idexx Laboratories of Westbrook, Maine, launched a new cloud-based, diagnostic results reporting service called VetConnect Plus and a web-based client communication and education service called Pet Health Network Pro, the company reported today.
The VetConnect Plus service assimilates a patient’s blood work history generated by Idexx point-of-care equipment and reference laboratories and displays the results on a single screen. The amalgamated data allows users to compare current results to historic trends and access interactive graphs. Users can also request additional reference laboratory tests through the service.
The service is accessible via a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone, Idexx reported. It is also built into Idexx’s Cornerstone Practice Management System’s electronic medical record.
The service is free for all Idexx customers in the U.S., and Idexx VetConnect online users can upgrade to VetConnect PLUS using their current user name and password.
The Pet Health Network Pro service allows users to send personalized client communications, including reminders, by email postcard and text message. It also includes tools to create online pet health pages, customizable materials including automated newsletters and surveys, pet health campaigns and practice websites, and social media support for Facebook. The service also integrates with Cornerstone and can be used to share information from the VetConnect PLUS service.
