IDEXX Introduces New Name, Expanded Focus for Its 9th Annual Cornerstone User Conference
The newly named 2014 IDEXX Information Management Conference will help customers better leverage technology to grow their practice and maximize the value of their IDEXX systems
WESTBROOK, Maine, September 05, 2014—IDEXX Laboratories, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDXX) announced today the expansion of its annual Cornerstone User Conference. The newly named IDEXX Information Management Conference, October 4–7 in Atlanta, will provide an immersive educational experience for customers who use either of the company’s two practice information management software offerings, Cornerstone Practice Management Software and DVMAX. Information about the IDEXX Pet Health Network Pro client marketing and communications system will also be available at the conference.
The new name and expanded educational content reflect the company’s focus on information management, which has led to numerous advances within Cornerstone and the addition of DVMAX and practice-building innovations, including:
- IDEXX VetConnect PLUS, featuring the ability to view all IDEXX diagnostic results—in-house, reference laboratory or both—on one screen for quicker, more confident decisions
- IDEXX Pet Health Network Pro, a dynamic practice marketing and communications system that supports stronger bonds between the practice and its clients, and helps attract new clients
- Pet Health Network 3D, which brings better client communication into the examination room by replacing cumbersome plastic anatomy models with vivid three-dimensional animations
- pethealthnetwork.com, a wealth of online customer-facing education materials your clients can access anytime
“IDEXX is committed to helping our customers get the most out of their technology,” says Michael Erickson, vice president and general manager of IDEXX Client and Practice Management Systems. “When customers learn all that our technology makes possible and how it works together, they can then use these tools to strengthen relationships with their clients and provide an ever higher standard of patient care.”
This annual conference gives people a chance to interact with and learn from peers and colleagues as well as industry and information management experts who can answer any question. In addition to multiple hands-on sessions, this year’s conference features top-notch industry speakers including practice efficiency expert Wendy S. Myers, NAVC’s 2013 Practice Manager of the Year Dr. Amanda Donnelly and social media expert and former PetFinder executive Jane Harrell.
