ANTECH

To set up your ANTECH Reference lab integration you will first need to contact ANTECH for the following account information: 

  • Hospital ID
  • ANTECH Online Username
  • ANTECH Online Password
  • Account ID
  • ANTECH Region (East/West)

Once you have collected this account information click on the Gear Icon at the top right of your eVetPractice Screen.

Next, Click on the ANTECH Setup Tab. If you do not see the ANTECH Setup option, then you must enable the integration under the General Tab > Integration Settings > Enable ANTECH Diagnostics Integration.

Fill in your ANTECH account information and click Save

Decide whether or not you want the entire ANTECH catalog imported into your eVetPractice site. eVetPractice will import the following:

  • All current ANTECH codes (~ 1,000). This will include all small and large animal codes across the US and Canada. Many clinics find it is easier to add the few ANTECH labs that they use instead of filtering through the entire catalog. 
  • Currently published Cost. Please note that NO SPECIAL PRICING to your clinic can be imported. If your clinic receives special pricing then you will need to manually change the cost. By default we will mark up the cost 200% to derive price, but you can globally change this.

If you decide to import all codes 

To import lab codes, you first must create a new lab category and have no codes in it.  You can do that by going to Labs, then clicking the Lab link next to the lab category drop down.  We recommend you name the category something like Antech Codes.

After the empty category is created, go back to Antech Setup, scroll down to Order Codes and expand that section.  Then select the lab category.  You will be given an option to Populate Lab Codes from Antech. Once you click the button to import, please wait until it completes.  This process could take several minutes as it is importing over 1000 items.


After the integration is configured, at a minimum, you’ll need to complete the following items 

  • Lab Items-Delete the ones you do not need and inactivate (turn red) those you do not currently need, but may have a need for in the future.
  • Pricing- Verify markup percentage to all items and/or define Price
  • Cost- Verify/change Cost (to you), if necessary, especially if you have any cost related contractual pricing that is different.
  • Linked Inventory Item / Linked Procedure - Link Labs to inventory items and procedures that should be linked together. If you need to a link a lab to more than (1) inventory item or more than (1) Procedure, use Packages instead.  Linking Billable Items  
  • Reminder Setup and Reminder Associations- Add reminder associations to any old lab codes from your old system’s lab billable items, if being replaced. Attaching a Reminder to a Billable Item
  • Inactivate Old ANTECH Lab Billable Items- Inactive (turn Red) old ANTECH Lab Billable Items that are replaced with the new downloaded ones, as applicable.
  • Packages- If Packages were migrated, update Packages that used your old codes to the newly imported ANTECH codes. Creating Packages

If you decide NOT to import all codes - After the integration is configured, at a minimum, you’ll need to complete the following items

  • Lab Items- Your site may have been pre-populated with a subset of sample ANTECH Lab items that you can use or we will have brought these over from your old system if any data was migrated. Add new ANTECH Labs you need, delete the ones you do not need, and inactivate (turn red) those you do not currently need, but may have a need for in the future.
  • Pricing- Verify markup percentage to all items and/or define Price
  • Cost- Verify/change Cost (to you)
  • Is ANTECH Lab Item / ANTECH Order Code- Enter the related ANTECH Lab Order Codes in the Order Code field that will appear under “Is ANTECH Lab Item
  • Linked Inventory Item / Linked Procedure - Link Labs to inventory items and procedures that should be linked together. If you need to a link a lab to more than (1) inventory item or more than (1) Procedure, use Packages instead. Linking Billable Items  
  • Reminder Setup and Reminder Associations-  Add reminder associations to any old lab codes from your old system’s lab billable items, if being replaced. Attaching a Reminder to a Billable Item
