When Nancy Dewitz, director of sales and marketing and technical consultant for Beyond Indigo Pets, works with veterinary practices, she suggests they implement a care team — the veterinarian doing the exam, a veterinary technician to help with the animal, and then a person inputting information directly into the practice management system.
