Katz, Sapper & Miller’s Beth Scott will present at the American Animal Hospital Association’s (AAHA) Veterinary Management Series: Practice Essentials. Taking place Nov. 8-10 in Lakewood, CO, the series is designed to equip veterinary practice managers with the tools they need to effectively manage a successful veterinary hospital.

Scott will present four sessions:

Financial Statements 101

Going beyond the basics, this session will get to the heart of the matter – why a fundamental understanding of financial statements will help ensure a hospital’s well-being. Topics covered will include which method of accounting to use, valuable ways to read financials, how to use financials as a measure of progress toward goals, and more.

Key Performance Indicators: Simplifying the Tools That Gauge Hospital Performance

This session will demystify and simplify key performance indicators (KPIs) and will teach owners and DVMs how to implement them to better gauge hospital performance. Attendees will learn how KPIs can be used as a benchmarking tool to help identify areas for hospital improvement and to track hospital strategies and goals.

Why Budgeting Can Prevent Problems and Relieve Stress

Budgets can benefit a practice in many different ways – from being able to anticipate problems and make continuous improvements to enabling sound financial decisions and establishing accountability. A sample DVM budget, accounting for all the categories and types of expenses an animal hospital would encounter, will give attendees a template for implementing a budget at their own practice.

Trends at the Most-Profitable Veterinary Hospitals

This session will review global practice statistics, helping owners and veterinarians gain a greater understanding of how to interpret their own numbers and devise strategies to increase growth.

Scott, who is a member of KSM’s Veterinary Services Group, frequently speaks at veterinary conferences and conventions across the country. Her presentations focus on equipping veterinary owners and practice managers with the tools they need to improve hospital profitability.
