What Is Veterinary Change Management?

Veterinary change management is the process in which changes happen within a practice. This process begins with the idea of the change and the end result is a review of how implementing the change went. 

Having a structured method for how changes are made within your practice is a core aspect to evolving positively for the future. Communication is an area of focus because everyone needs to be on board for any change to work out in the long term. Having open communication with all parties involved helps foster conversation and feedback that you can use for future changes within your practice. 

There is no one way to approach change, each practice may have a different approach or number of steps that they take when adding anything new to the business. 

The Benefits Of Change 

The rise of digital tools has served to benefit veterinary practices in recent years. Simple changes, such as better diagnostic tools, have made the process of evaluating a patient faster and reaching the next step in less time. 

This time savings allows practices to see more patients, which can have a direct impact on the number of people they are able to serve and the revenue you can get as a result.
