How Payment Tools Can Reduce the Pain in the System and Expand Healthcare Service Offerings

Virox collaborated with Heather Cammisa, Chief Enterprise Officer, of Open Door Veterinary Collective to expand on research offering insight into solutions that can expand health care considering the financial barriers that exist today. Special thanks to Dr. Sara Pizano, Founder of Team Shelter USA, LLC, for joining us and moderating!

The cash flow and credit challenges high among pet owners, ultimately leave many clinic and patient needs unaddressed.

In today’s financial climate its important to consider financial fluency and well being in the health services so that we continue to find ways to expand access to healthcare. Watch the full webinar below:
