Benefits to Your Practice

How can VetXML benefit your practice?

VetXML allows compliant practice management systems (PMS) to quickly and securely share data with veterinary service providers. Prior to this industry standard data format, information could only be shared with other practices and external organisations via post or fax.

With VetXML, your practice is no longer restricted by the timely and costly processing and sharing of data non-electronically; rather electronic insurance claims, lab results, microchipping forms, benchmarking reports and much more can be processed and monitored quickly and without postage or stationery costs. Sending data electronically also offers a far more secure way of sharing information than the traditional methods of post and fax.

The benefits to your practice are endless, but most importantly VetXML improves practice efficiency, saves money and increases client satisfaction. So, with over 300 practice groups already signed up, isn’t it time you spoke the language?

Insurance claims service

The insurance claims service enables you to send claimable items electronically, direct from your PMS to the insurance company. This removes the need for paperwork, frees up staff time and saves approximately £5 per claim by avoiding printing and postage costs. Sending the data electronically also improves cash-flow, as insurance payments will be received more immediately. Currently all eClaims are delivered via the VetEnvoy hub.

Benefits - Microchipping

Microchip registration service

The microchip registration service will enable you to electronically transfer the details of a client held on your PMS immediately to the relevant registration database provider. This removes the need for all the usual paperwork and gives your client the peace of mind of having immediate cover should their pet go missing.

Automated delivery of benchmark data

The benchmark data service will enable you to send benchmark data electronically and automatically from your PMS to a benchmarking company, such as Veterinary Insights (formerly PanelVet). It also offers an ease of data delivery that is not apparent when using FTP or Excel spreadsheets.


Lab Requests

Create external lab test requests directly from your PMS

With the Lab Requests service, a few clicks of the mouse are sufficient to create an electronic lab request form. This process negates administration errors – such as misspelling the patient’s details – and saves staffs’ precious time by filling the form automatically.

Users will therefore not be required to waste time searching and filling the paper forms, and will always have the latest prices at their fingertips.

Lab Reports straight into your PMS

The Lab Reports service works by enabling the secure, seamless and direct transfer of the report data between your PMS and the IT systems of lab companies on a completely paperless basis. The report is automatically entered directly into the relevant animal record in the practice’s system.
