The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) recently brought together several thought leaders from a wide range of veterinary practices to identify ways to help veterinary practices thrive.
Two roundtable discussions were held at the AVMA’s headquarters in Schaumburg, Illinois, to explore ways to help veterinarians thrive in clinical practice as well as how veterinarians can make the most out of telemedicine and virtual care technologies.
The first session focused on strategies and techniques for helping veterinarians create more financially successful practices while also maintaining a healthy work-life balance and achieving personal and professional growth. The AVMA is currently in the process of using the feedback received during this session to develop new tools geared toward helping clinical practitioners and their teams implement many of the approaches discussed.
The second session focused on establishing guidelines regarding the use of telemedicine to improve client satisfaction, retention, compliance, and outcomes as well as techniques for the collection and sharing of data to assess those metrics. The results of this session are being used by the AVMA to further develop its Telehealth Resource Center and its telemedicine policy.
