The VVCA will host its first summit virtually next month with the aim of helping veterinary practices navigate the world of telehealth.

COVID-19 has propelled telemedicine into the limelight, with its use increasing dramatically due to the need for social distancing. To help veterinary practices increase their understanding of what virtual care is and how it should be provided to pet owners, the Veterinary Virtual Care Association (VVCA) has announced that it is hosting its first summit to help educate the profession.

“The goal of the Veterinary Virtual Care Summit is to provide real, tangible insight and tools that can be implemented immediately in practice to improve and elevate the health of those animals in our care,” said Aaron Smiley, DVM, current president of the Indiana Veterinary Medical Association and one of the founders of VVCA, in a recent press release.

The 5.5-hour summit will be held on August 18. Registration is free for any veterinary professional. A partial list of topics includes:

  • The economics of virtual care
  • Understanding the VCPR
  • Myths and misperceptions about virtual care
  • Workflow, technology, and your team
  • The client experience in virtual care
