On today’s show, I’m joined by data devotee and self-identified software nerd, Paolo Lencioni! Paolo is a bit of a unicorn, part veterinarian, former practice owner, part accountant, and more recently software developer. He built Neo PMS which was acquired by Idexx. He is also one of the directors of Valuvet, Australia’s leading valuation service for veterinary businesses.

But it’s his latest software venture, Profit Diagnostix, which forms the backdrop to this conversation. Profit Diagnostix is a service that provides member practices with weekly, automated data visualizations offering real-time feedback and bench-marking into team performance in veterinary clinics.

So join me in this conversation as we uncover the secret power of dashboards and data, and how you can use them to transform your practice.
