Beth Scott, a director in Katz, Sapper & Miller’s Veterinary Services Group, will present at the 2018 Emerald Coast Veterinary Conference. Taking place June 14-17 in Miramar Beach, FL, this conference brings together veterinarians, practice managers, and veterinary technicians for meaningful discussion and education on practice management, strategic initiatives, and the latest industry trends.

Scott’s sessions will review several key practice management issues affecting veterinary hospitals:

  • Profit-Enhancement Workshop: Finding the Root Cause

In this session, attendees will not only learn how to deconstruct problems to diagnose their profit issues; they will develop a unique action plan for treatment that is designed to enhance their own hospital’s profits.

  • Key Performance Indicators: Simplifying Tools That Gauge Hospital Performance

Key performance indicators (KPIs) can be used as a benchmarking tool to evaluate current business performance against national averages. This session will teach hospital owners and veterinarians how KPIs can create an actionable scorecard for tracking strategies and goals.

  • How to Boost Your ROI by Exposing Hidden Costs

During this session, attendees will review various aspects of labor management and direct costs, including background checks, personality profiles, interviewing, self and management evaluations, goal setting, compensation models, and inventory costs.

  • Trends at the Most Profitable 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.

  • Strategic Planning: Making Your Dream a Reality

Strategic planning, simply put, is determining where the hospital is going, how it is going to get there, and how the hospital will measure its progress. Owners and veterinarians will learn how to run a strategic planning meeting, including how to build an agenda, who should attend, what should be reviewed prior to the meeting, and what topics should be covered.

Additional conference topics will focus on clinical pathology, dentistry, neurology, nutrition, pain management, leadership, and more.
