We Help your Veterinary
pathology Practice
run smooth and easy so you can do great work

There's no way around it: pathology is hard work - and that's all the more reason you shouldn’t have to worry about the minutiae of operations. We empower pathologists to grow their practices by making their workflows easy so they have more time and energy to focus on doing great work. 

We make it easy to...

Easy for you AND for your clients

The reality is that pathologists can get bogged down By a lot of wasted, inefficient work

Any of these sound familiar? 

Hours spent answering questions & giving basic updates

How many hours do you and your staff spend simply answering basic updates like "where is my case at?", taking orders for add on testing, or even trying to track down answers to questions about a sample in processing, playing phone tag, and spinning wheels? We've been there and know the feeling.

Time for a better way to communicate the basics.  

With Z Rex, utilize the client portal, case-status reporting, automated client updates, and in-portal messaging to ensure questions are answered and everyone knows where things are at. 

Copying & Pasting, patching together lab management with a dozen office software tools 

 Many labs and practices are stuck using a hacked-together set of applications and tools to get the job done.  A copy/paste hell in most cases. 

You may have looked for solutions but seeing that there was nothing there for you, continue using a patched together system of word documents, excel spreadsheets, pdf conversions and emailing or faxing (e-fax or worse yet, printing and faxing manually!), a folder system of organizing reports, and then manually creating the invoices for billing... ad nauseum.  

This brings back PTSD just typing it... I must now meditate, relax and remember that Z Rex is saving us from this.

Failed attempts with other LIMS or even building a custom solution

Everyone who has attempted either a custom or out of the box solution has a nightmare story to share. We talk to people who spent all of their startup money and more on a custom solution that went sideways and never even launched. Some businesses never get off the ground because they are stopped by these software issues before they even start.

Other pathologists waste time working in inefficient systems that take them away from doing their most valuable work and therefore limit the growth of their business, their impact, their income, and their enjoyment of their work.

AND to boot, the options out there - even if they didn’t suck - cost too much to get into.

Cases & components fall through the cracks

We've all been there... you get a call about a case and everyone looks at each other blankly wondering where that case is at or how it isn't already done! Stuff sometimes just slips through the cracks (especially when heavy manual effort is involved and too much is simply kept in the ol' noggin).  

Delayed payments and forgotten invoices

Delays in sending invoices and no solid method of following up on invoices have caused more financial burden than is necessary. The work is there, done and simply needs to be paid for promptly; but far too often, invoices are late being sent - let alone being paid - and often fail to be sent altogether! That sounds like a quick way to go bankrupt and yet happens far too often.  (Once again, speaking from experience 😭)

Difficult (if not impossible) to dig into your past work

If you've been practicing for a while, you likely have a treasure trove of case material that is invaluable - whether to follow up and learn from your cases, for research purposes, or even to optimize future work, track trends, and more.  Yet, this rich history is often extremely difficult, if not impossible to sift through, sort, and view in any productive way.  

And yet, there is a way... finally! Z Rex Analyzer and Reporting gives you simple search tools and summary analysis views to easily gain insight from the trove.

Audit trails are a mess, if they even exist

An issue arises and you need to figure out where the breakdown occurred. Well, just check the audit trail on the case!! if it existed, that would be a good idea.

Oh, you do have one?! great! but... half the team is using the same user access for convenience and cost savings so... its completely inaccurate. Back to square one... 

Time for a solution that is both easy to use and cost effective.  Every user gets their own access (often at zero additional cost) AND the quick-access features allow easy login/logout with a simple pin (no need to fully log out, just quick-lock and pin access back in as needed. 

Other "Solutions" Don't Really Solve Much

  • Most are built for human labs with human needs and regulations (apparently "species" isn't as important for humans, go figure...)
  • Many are legacy solutions with years of "franken-building" and outdated architecture
  • Most are not built by the practitioners who use them but by bigger software groups and departments - disconnected from the workflow realities of the lab and pathology reporting.
  • And these solutions are just flat-out expensive - even if they were awesome, they are cost-prohibitive

Are you tired of this?

When a lot of the work involved in reporting a case is extraneous, time-wasting, clumsy administrative work that doesn’t have anything to do with pathology, it really limits how many cases a pathologist can read, and therefore, how many patients they can serve. It also just kind of sucks and melts your brain to deal with inefficient systems (or non-systems), needing to break up your flow and stop doing the work that you enjoy and that helps patients and generates revenue for your business, and instead do things like chase down an errant sample or report, call a shipper about an overcharge or refund due, or make and send invoices so you can get paid for all your hard work.
