Zoo, aquarium, wildlife veterinarians use the Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) to record and share information regarding animals in their care. Now, when these veterinary teams send blood samples to IDEXX, they can view and upload the report directly in ZIMS for Medical. Called ZIMS Test Result Upload, the new feature reduces manual data entry for veterinary staff and improves the accuracy and volume of data used to calculate ZIMS Expected Test Results used by veterinarians to diagnose illness.
