Question: How do I add a new mapping for IDEXX species and breeds?
Within the IDEXX Setup species and breeds that exist in your practice need to be mapped to an IDEXX code.
Click to expand each section. The Name column will show the names of species and breeds that are already located in your practice's classifications. The IDEXX Code column will need to be mapped with the required codes from IDEXX to accept the submission. An error will appear when submitting a lab if the breed and species are not mapped accordingly.
Note: Any comma appearing in the name will need to be changed to an underscore when mapping in eVetpractice.
Note: If you are not sure which IDEXX Code to use log into your IDEXX VetConnect PLUS website > select the option to Order New Diagnostics > then select Add New Patient. This will be a blank form that allows you to see the drop-down lists for species and breeds.
The Caprine species on VetConnect PLUS lists "Goat" for the species. This would make the corresponding IDEXX Species GOAT. The breed list displays many options but one of them is "Goat, Domestic". The corresponding IDEXX Code for this breed would be DOMESTIC_GOAT.
