Ordering API


The VetConnect® PLUS Ordering application programming interface (API) enables your veterinary practice management system to send test requests to IDEXX Reference Laboratories, retrieve the list of available tests, create bar-coded requisition forms, and update or cancel orders that are in transit to the laboratory.


Your customers enjoy a seamless reference laboratory workflow, while ensuring they capture charges automatically to pass along to their clients.

Results API


The VetConnect PLUS Results API enables your veterinary practice management system to retrieve both in-house and IDEXX reference laboratory test results through IDEXX VetConnect PLUS.


Veterinarians and technicians can view these combined test results side-by-side for easier analysis, interpretation, and trending. The results appear in a single VetConnect PLUS browser element within the practice management software. Other sources of diagnostic results will be added in future releases.
