This is a private group for practice owners ONLY. We take pride in keeping this group exclusive to practice owners, no support staff, associate DVMs, or salespeople are admitted. Discuss the nitty gritty of practice ownership and learn from your peers and our experts.
This group contains all of IGNITE's practice management forms, templates, articles, spreadsheets, documents, and checklists. Use our powerful search to find what you are looking for, or simply click on the pinned post and browse by category. Our goal is to continuously share best in class resources that you need to do your job well, and keep you from wasting time reinventing the wheel.
If there's something new on IGNITE, this is the group where you'll hear it first. Illuminations is where put the most important announcements, articles you need to read, and any functionality upgrades.
Help with those pesky HR questions is finally here! Our Human Resources Expert, Dana Buck, will be able to answer questions and guide you through tough situations.
Got unused equipment collecting dust? Members can post any equipment they are looking to sell, or looking to buy from another hospital. Our goal with this group is to extend the life of useful veterinary equipment. If it doesn't sell and you want to donate it, IGNITE will help get your used equipment to a veterinary-related charity.
Get the latest product news, access vendor's resource libraries, and have 2-way conversations with their experts and support team.
Here you'll find videos, RACE approved CE, VHMA approved courses, and bite-sized info to help you take your management moxie to the next level. Use our powerful search tool to find what you are looking for, or simply click on the pinned post and browse by category.
Ask your IGNITE colleagues questions about practice management issues, equipment they like (or don't), how they would handle a difficult client or employee scenario, or just share a good idea that has worked for you. The best part? You get responses in real time!
The mission of this group is to keep every dog in his or her home by dramatically reducing the number of dogs abandoned, surrendered, or euthanized every year due to behavioral issues. Ask our Behaviorist, Donna Chandler, any questions you have surrounding dog behavior.
Looking for breaking news in the veterinary world? How about tips, strategies and best practices? This is the spot. We have articles and discussions about emotional intelligence, leadership, empathy, constructive feedback, and hiring tips. To name just a few.
All of IGNITE's microlearning videos are stored here in Practice Management TV. Watch quick, to-the-point instructional and narrative videos on a variety of topics that you encounter everyday. About to have a feedback meeting with a millennial? Need to chat with an employee who's coming to work with some gnarly BO? We have a video for that, and so much more.
Practice Owner subscribers also get to access all of the medical specialty groups available to the Veterinarian subscribers listed here.
Ask any questions you might have about account maintenance, functionality, or how the IGNITE learning platform works. We are here to make your experience awesome!
We've partnered with LifeLearn Animal Health to include Sofie, a tool that allows you to search over 40,000 pages of content from the most trusted and credible veterinary textbooks, journals and conference proceedings... through a chatbot on IGNITE included with your subscription.
Sofie, the Greek word for "wisdom", is a sophisticated web app, and the next generation of instant digital access to current and trusted veterinary information. Fully optimized for desktop computers, tablets and mobile devices, Sofie delivers highly relevant results by querying over 40,000 pages of content from the most trusted and credible veterinary textbooks, journals and conference proceedings, all housed within Sofie’s extensive online information library.
The key to Sofie’s leading-edge technology is IBM Watson®, an innovative, cognitive computing system that uses augmented intelligence to rapidly search and deliver veterinary medical information, from differentials and drug information to diagnostic and treatment advice.
Designed to respond to natural-language questions, Sofie delivers results based on context instead of just keywords and guarantees that Sofie will retrieve the most relevant results on searches. In other words... you just ask Sofie, like you would ask a colleague. And since Sofie includes ongoing updates, Sofie users always have the latest information at their fingertips to support the best possible diagnosis and treatment decisions.
“I feel like it is Christmas and I have more toys than I can play with!"
“Thankful and grateful for everything! To all my friends on here on IGNITE! This app has been a true blessing - love it!”
“I LOVE IGNITE! I’ve tried so many things different practice managers have discussed. It’s wonderful!”
"Previously it seemed like veterinary practices kept each other at a distance and weren’t friendly with one another, but IGNITE allows us to ask each other questions and connect. It gives us the opportunity to help each other without the feeling of competition getting in the way. Broadway Vet loves what IGNITE has done so far and can’t wait for all that will come from it in the future!”
"I love this site. It has so many resources for everyone in the hospital. It has so many great forms and information in the same place. I like that you can also customize the groups that most interest you. I think IGNITE has done the industry a great service!"
“I love that this forum gets us all sharing and helping each other. We are all here to help the pets have a better quality of life. Helping each other assures that this priority is met via all the intricate details that are required to maintain a smooth running clinic. I feel I am a better manager and person with the help of the IGNITE team.”
“We used to wonder about where and how to find resources for any number of topics, and now our go-to is IGNITE! It’s so great to be able to find answers to questions, but even more, to be able to network with some absolutely fantastic people and know we are not alone in whatever situation we are facing. THANK you so much!!”
