Users told us how Cornerstone could make their job easier and improve their ability to provide high-quality care. And Cornerstone 8.6 NEXT Software delivers with over 100 improvements. Now you can:

  • Access your patients’ complete vaccination history in seconds with the new Vaccines tab on the Patient Clipboard™.
  • Quickly email key client documents like patient histories and invoices straight from Cornerstone®—no more leaving the software to do it!
  • Safeguard patient and client information with advanced auto log-off and auto lock capabilities.
  • Easily manage your patients’ preventive care plans within Cornerstone Software, thanks to full integration with Petly® Plans. No more leaving Cornerstone to check a patient’s plan status or view available items! Plus, all available plan items are automatically discounted at invoicing.
  • Reprint an IDEXX Reference Laboratories form without reopening the order and resubmitting it.
  • Stop worrying where those IDEXX Reference Laboratories results are—we’ve eliminated the need for a dedicated reference laboratory workstation, so results download more quickly right to the patient record.

“The process was how an upgrade should go: easy and no surprises. We love being able to email invoices, history, and POs straight from Cornerstone. It saves a lot of steps!”
