I am happy to announce that zoo, aquarium, and wildlife veterinary teams can now upload hematology and chemistry diagnostic results from Gribbles Australia and Gribbles New Zealand directly to ZIMS for Medical. By saving lab results directly to the animal’s medical records, the Test Result Upload feature reduces manual data entry and improves the consistency and quality of animal health records.
ZIMS Test Result Upload was developed through the contributions – in both funding and expertise – of members of the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA), Zoo and Aquarium Association – Australasia (ZAA), and the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA).
For more information on ZIMS Test Result Upload, access the Species360 Member Support and Training help document here.
To all that have supported the development, testing, and release of this feature, we are very grateful for your contribution to this work, and are delighted to make this available to our member community.
