ImproMed Infinity version 4.4 to include LabREXX electronic test requisition
 software for faster, more efficient laboratory test ordering
WESTBROOK, Maine, June 8, 2009 — IDEXX Reference Laboratories and ImproMed, Inc. have teamed up to launch IDEXX LabREXX® Software within the newest release of the ImproMed® Infinity Practice Management System. Incorporating LabREXX functionality into Infinity software increases practice efficiency by eliminating the need for manual test requisitions. Additionally, LabREXX software helps reduce lost charges with outside lab tests, potentially saving individual practices thousands of dollars a year in missed revenue. 
It is estimated that 20%–25% of outside laboratory tests never get billed to clients per year.1 “Work-flow inefficiencies and lost revenue are significant, everyday challenges for busy practices,” said Ron Detjen, President, ImproMed, Inc. “The combination of Infinity software and LabREXX electronic test requisitions offers veterinarians a single-source solution that saves them both time and money.”
 From the Infinity Lab Requests screen, users can access the LabREXX test requisition form to automatically populate it with information directly from a patient’s electronic medical record. Tests are then selected from a complete menu of IDEXX Reference Laboratories tests, which also includes sample requirements and turnaround times for each test. Once completed, users then print the order form with its unique bar code to ensure accurate processing at the reference laboratory.
“The inspiration of giving veterinary practices more time to care for patients is what sparked the collaboration between IDEXX Reference Laboratories and our partners at ImproMed,” said Jon Ayers, IDEXX President and CEO. “By adding the time-saving and revenue-enhancing features of LabREXX software to ImproMed Infinity Practice Management Software, we’ve created a unique and valuable set of tools for customers of both ImproMed and IDEXX Reference Labs.”
