Boosting Your Financial IQ to Maximize Fiscal Performance:


Key Performance Indicators – also referred to as KPIs – are some of the most overused and misunderstood terms in business management. Yet KPIs are one of the most important tools a business must use to gauge and improve performance.

Financial analysis sessions can have an overload of metrics and calculations. But this session is different -- this session will demystify KPIs and will teach owners and DVMs simple systems for using them in their practice while avoiding information overload.

Examples throughout the session will show how KPIs can be applied in a veterinary practice to reduce expense and to implement best practices. KPI examples will cover topic areas such as:

•        Profits: revenues, direct costs and benchmarking against most-profitable practices
•        Transaction costs: medical, grooming and non-medical
•        Labor costs: flow management, employee benefits and compensation
•        Inventory costs: receiving, storage and turnover

Session attendees will understand how KPIs can be used as a benchmarking tool to evaluate current business performance against national averages and how KPIs can create an actionable scorecard for tracking strategies and goals.

Learning Objectives:
1.      Understand how KPIs can be used as a benchmarking tool.
2.      Identify areas for hospital improvement utilizing KPIs.
3.      Track hospital strategies and goals via KPIs.
