Veterinary Clinics In Austin Texas
Listen up office managers, you have the most important job and with it tons of responsibility for your pet clinic! If you’ve successfully managed your veterinary clinic and are now thinking of innovative and cost-effective improvement ideas for bringing your practice into the digital age, this post is for you.
Go Digital With Record Keeping
Every veterinary clinic I’ve visited in the past has the back wall stacked floor to ceiling with client folders and paper records. Even recently, I visited my dog Winston’s pet clinic in Austin Texas and I was amazed to see this massive wall of records I had never noticed before. I don’t get it, why go through the hassle and risk of keeping paper records when going digital with a OCR and the right indexing software makes more sense? Yes, it will require some planning and work to be done initially. However, with the right IT support company as your technology partner, it will have huge cost-saving benefits, improve efficiency, and streamline administrative tasks in the future.

Setup A Separate Guest WiFi Network
A recent experience I had at my dog Winston’s veterinary clinic discovered a huge security breach for the practice. While waiting in the lobby, I decided to browse the net on my iPad. Of course, streaming is better done on WiFi (Sprint 4G is terrible) so I asked the practice manager for their WiFi network and password. They only had one so they gave provided me with the name and key. A few minutes later, I realized they provided me front door access to their entire network, computers, printers, and files. Of course, I immediately brought this up to the practice manager who said the owner’s son set up the WiFi. Politely, I addressed the security concern and suggested they not provide the WiFi password to anyone until the security breach was resolved.
With ITC as your technology partner, we can set up, and implement a guest network with security so your veterinary clinic isn’t exposed to any threats from a security breach. Some wireless users may take advantage of the free WiFi and decide to stream tons of data slowing down your network. With a guest network, we can implement access restrictions, a home page with acceptance of use, and set network limitations so all guests of your clinic enjoy the benefit of free WiFi.
