You became a veterinarian because you want to help animals. At the Collaborative Care Coalition (CCC), we share your goal. And we believe one of the best ways to achieve this is through collaboration between primary care veterinarians and veterinary specialists.
As a non-profit organization, CCC was founded on the premise that working together to care for animals isn’t just good medicine, it’s also good for business. And now we have research that quantifies it.
Learn more about how collaboration is the key to healthier patients — and a healthier bottom line. And, how you can put this knowledge to work for your practice.
The Collaborative Care Coalition's mission is simple — and clear: We aim to achieve optimal health care for animals, advance the veterinary profession, and evolve the relationship between primary care veterinarians and specialists.
Our strength relies on our partnerships. We have created a collective of primary care veterinarians, veterinary specialists, corporate groups, independent practices, specialty colleges, universities, animal health care companies, and veterinary associations who, together, will advance the profession. While our businesses may differ, we share the same goals of providing optimal care to animals while growing our businesses. Partners like the American College of Veterinary Surgeons and Zoetis have been platinum sponsors from the beginning, helping to drive our mission forward.
At the Collaborative Care Coalition, we’ve long believed there is a correlation between the health of companion animals, and the frequency and timeliness of collaboration between primary care veterinarians and specialists. What’s more, we believe practices that routinely collaborate have a healthier bottom line, a more loyal clientele and, as a result, greater value.
Following its founding in 2012 as VetSOAP (the Veterinary Specialists Outreach & Awareness Project), we launched a multiphase research initiative to validate our hypothesis that there is a correlation between the health of companion animals and the frequency and timeliness of collaboration between primary care veterinarians and specialists. We further sought to quantify the impact of this collaboration (or lack thereof) on the health of animals and the practices’ bottom line.
