Business Infusions: Company Executive
Backed By Veterinary Experience
The most successful veterinary practices understand that flexible, comprehensive management and financial systems can streamline operations, improve client service, and drive profitability.
Business Infusions was founded with the simple goal of having access to more business data. Historically, practice management was focused on medical records, but from a veteirnary practice management perspective, this is not nough. A practice must have detailed information to analyze practice performance and then have the ability to use that information to plan for their specific needs. The guiding principles of HVMS have enabled the platform to be recognized as a leader is business management around the globe in only a few short years. The 'secret sauce' of combining experienced veterinarians and technology company builders has proven successful for our veterinary customers.
