Forward Booking = Healthy Pets and Healthy Practices

An Alliance that Benefits YOU
As you know, our organization is a proud Associate Member of Partners for Healthy Pets (PHP) and we are very pleased to announce a collaborative program between PHP, Veterinary Medical Association Executives (VMAE) and CVMA. We believe this initiative will have a significant impact on the health of your patients and your practice.

Why? We believe this initiative will have a significant impact on the health of your patients and your practice. This collaborative program focuses on the importance of forward booking, which simply means scheduling all patients’ next appointments before they leave your practice, regardless of the reason for their current visit. This includes medical progress exams and preventive healthcare exams. Forward booking ensures your patients receive the highest quality of care at the right time.

You have probably been hearing about and maybe even considering implementing forward booking in your practice, but are not quite sure how to get started.

We can help you!
To get started, visit the forward booking section on the Partners for Healthy Pets website http://www.partnersforhealthypets.org/forward_booking.aspx. Download the document titled, “The Key to Forward Booking Appointments: Unlock the Potential of a Best Practice For Your Practice.” This gives you a simple, step-by-step approach to how to use the handful of tools available to you to provide your practice team with the skills necessary to be successful. Ready. Set. Forward Book!

By using these tools, you will be able to easily implement forward booking in your practice. The result? Healthier patients and a healthier practice!
