OSHKOSH, Wis. and GLEN BURNIE, Md., Jan. 14 ImproMed, Inc. creators of the Infinity veterinary practice management software, and VetCentric, a veterinary-only pharmacy providing home delivery services on behalf of veterinarians, announce the integration of VetCentric's One-Click Home Delivery into Infinity. Available immediately with the release of v4.5 of Infinity, veterinarians can offer home delivery of pharmaceuticals, compounded medications, and therapeutic and wellness diets directly from their practice management system.
"VetCentric is thrilled to announce this partnership. ImproMed is a leader in the veterinary industry and this integration represents a key step toward fulfilling our commitment to improving patient health and increasing compliance in practices," said Ted Root, President and CEO of VetCentric. "One-Click Home Delivery through Infinity offers clinics easy access to a vast range of prescription medication, dramatically expanding treatment options without inventory cost."
A veterinarian simply checks the "Send to Home Delivery" box when creating a prescription in Infinity and the prescription information is electronically sent directly to VetCentric, where the order is then filled and delivered directly to the client's home. Consumers can easily order refills directly from VetCentric, and for each order a client fills or refills, the patient medical record in Infinity is automatically and electronically updated.
"ImproMed continues to be on the forefront helping veterinarians' run their practices in the most efficient manner. Our integration with VetCentric will dramatically simplify home delivery, and subsequently improve pet health and compliance," said Ron Detjen, President & CEO of ImproMed. "This partnership arms veterinary clinics with a simple way to effectively compete with Internet pharmacies."
