VisionWeb Completes Integration with VisionStar’s Lab Management Software to Further Automate Lab-to-Lab Orders
Austin, Texas – June 17, 2004 – VisionWeb, LP, the online service to help eyecare providers streamline and simplify their practice, and VisionStar, LLC, a leading provider of laboratory management software, announced today the launch of a successful interface for automating the routing of orders from a VisionStar Laboratory Management system to outsource labs.
“We are excited to be working with VisionStar,” said Ron Barnes, vice president of sales and marketing of VisionWeb. “VisionStar is one of the first laboratory management system vendors to be connected through VisionWeb with the ability to route orders from the lab management system to outsource labs. This relationship provides our lab customers with greater flexibility in ordering, and helps us achieve our goal of not only connecting eyecare providers with their choice of labs but also connecting labs with their choice of outsource labs.”
Prior to this new service, in March 2003 VisionWeb and VisionStar created an interface to route orders directly from the eyecare practitioner's office to participating VisionStar labs, eliminating the re-keying of patient data and enabling labs to provide more timely order processing and order status to their customers.
“Our ongoing relationship with VisionWeb has given us the ability to provide our customers with an automated system, which enables orders to be received electronically, eliminates frame to come orders, provides online order status for eyecare practitioners and now enables orders to be outsourced electronically to the preferred laboratory,” said Robin Cassidy, EVP of VisionStar. “Our goal to remain current with technology has been greatly enhanced by our relationship with VisionWeb.”
Headquartered in Austin, Texas, VisionWeb, LP is the online service to help eyecare providers streamline and simplify their practices. VisionWeb offers online multi-payer insurance transaction processing; convenient and direct-to-supplier online ordering; one-stop access to ophthalmic clinical news and information; and other benefits for opticians, optometrists, ophthalmologists, optical manufacturers, laboratories, distributors, and patients.
