Economic and Personal Wellbeing Initiative

CVMA has undertaken a strategic initiative to enhance the economic and personal wellbeing of veterinarians in Colorado.

CVMA has committed to focusing on your economic and personal wellbeing by introducing two new suites of resources and a new membership option!

CVMA Performance Analytics

Three proven benchmarking tools that can help you improve practice performance:

Practice Diagnostic Report – A personalized comparative report providing useful and unique management statistics about your business in five key areas of practice management, with information that can be used to set targets that improve scheduling and client flow; set appropriate staffing levels; help control costs and set budget targets; and decrease expenses.

The following are SAMPLE results only for one hospital and not a reference for everyone; they are provided simply to show an example of what you will receive if you utilize the Practice Diagnostic Report Survey analytics tool.

Client Satisfaction Survey – An accurate measurement of current client satisfaction levels that provides a valuable and personalized snapshot of how well your practice is serving clients; the information in the report can be used to improve client service, decrease the stress associated with dissatisfied clients, and provide an effective tool to change staff behavior.

Personalized Fee Guide – The culmination of two decades of research into veterinary fees, incomes, and client surveys, this simple tool allows you to quickly develop a fee guide specific to your practice—it is not reliant on neighboring practice charges, or on the economics of your area—and comes with all the support you need to start making real changes to your revenues.
