Coalition for Connected Veterinary Care

Coalition for Connected Veterinary Care

Relationships first. Technology forward.

Technology offers great possibilities for enhancing veterinary patient care – and much of its potential remains unrealized. This presents our profession with a challenge: How can we increase awareness of the benefits of telehealth and encourage more veterinarians to use tools of telehealth in practice?

AVMA believes the answer lies in a collaborative, grassroots approach. That’s why we are a lead partner in the Coalition for Connected Veterinary Care, an alliance of veterinary and animal health organizations united to empower veterinarians to explore and integrate tools of telehealth into their practices in ways that work for them. Why? To better serve patients, clients, veterinary teams, and practices in a variety of ways:

  • Strengthen relationships among practices, clients, and patients
  • Improve continuity in patient care
  • Fully engage technology to advance care
  • Enhance practice efficiency

Working together, the Coalition for Connected Veterinary Care provides advocacy and resources that respect the integrity of the veterinarian-client-patient relationship and support the way veterinarians practice.
