Why Telemedicine?

Telemedicine represents the merging of today’s cutting-edge digital technologies with the best of traditional veterinary medicine.

Telemedicine is the most efficient, cost-effective way to bring board-certified specialists into your practice, to help provide your clients and their pets with the best care possible.

I already know how to read x-rays, why should I consider submitting them to a specialist?

  • Improve the quality of medicine in your practice through access to board-certified specialists. Veterinary medicine is shifting to an increased Standard of Care to mirror human medicine.
  • Increase revenue to your practice through radiologist findings and recommendations for further diagnostics and treatments.
  • Save time by having a boarded specialist evaluate your images and write up their findings. Frees up your time to see more patients.
  • Receive a detailed written report for the medical record, saving time and adding extra security in liability situations.
  • Enhance client perception of the level of care you offer.
  • Learn the latest techniques and treatments by having a report for every case. It’s like having a boarded specialist in your practice!
  • How do you know you’re missing something if you are missing it? Hospitals that incorporate telemedicine on a routine basis find that 15-20% of their cases contain information that they would have missed on their own.
