Abaxis, Inc. (NasdaqGS: ABAX), a global diagnostics company manufacturing point-of-care instruments and consumables for the medical, research, and veterinary markets worldwide, announced today that a co-marketing and technology partnership has been reached with Vetter Software, which names Vetter Software's cloud veterinary practice management solution as Abaxis' preferred practice management solution.
As part of the partnership, Abaxis will co-market and re-sell Vetter Software's solution globally. The integration between the companies' products automatically imports results from Abaxis' blood analyzers into a clinic's Vetter Software account, which significantly reduces the amount of time spent by clinic staff to manually import results into a patient's records.
"Cloud technology is disrupting every aspect of veterinary diagnostics," said Sagi Solomon, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Vetter Software. "Veterinary Hospitals are demanding that data from every aspect of their practices be available to them in real-time from anywhere. Our partnership with Abaxis answers this call by leveraging the power of the cloud to make blood results from Abaxis on-site analyzers available to practitioners in their Vetter Software accounts, which can be accessed from any device with an Internet connection."
Abaxis' Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Dr. Craig Tockman states "The point-of-care laboratory is a critical aspect of veterinary practice both medically and financially. Data management is not only important for the electronic patient record, but for client communication, workflow and billing. This agreement allows Abaxis to offer state of the art cloud based solutions to our chemistry and hematology customers while providing greater accessibility to view point-of-care laboratory results on any device. Abaxis customers can now optimally manage their laboratory, provide optimal client communication and enhance their workflow while providing the most accurate and precise results from the best analyzers available in the market."
"Vetter Software has allowed our burgeoning ophthalmology practice to run paperless, and with increased efficiency," said Dr. Patrick McCallum, owner of Vision Care for Animals, a specialty practice based in Palo Alto, California. "We appreciate the latest integration with Abaxis, it is keeping our in-house clinical chemistry results at our fingertips the moment we need it."
