Speakers

Dr. Ivan Zak has earned multiple accreditations in veterinary medicine. After graduating, he worked in 35 veterinary hospitals across Canada, where he was inspired to create Smart Flow, a first-in-the-industry workflow optimization system. Smart Flow was subsequently acquired by Fortune 500 company IDEXX, where he became General Manager of the Software division. After consulting 500+ practices worldwide on workflow optimization, he decided it was time for a new adventure. Dr. Ivan has a holistic view of the whole veterinary business market and he’s making his next step the creation of a more cohesive, unified platform that will ultimately benefit the veterinary professionals.

Welcome to Consolidate That! My name is Ivan Zak. I’m a veterinarian by trade, Founder of Smart Flow, ex-General Manager of the Software Division at IDEXX, the CEO of Veterinary Integration Solutions, and I’m passionate about the issue of burnout in the veterinary domain. And we’re starting this new podcast.

I love working with people to be able to find technology that makes their life a little bit easier. So, Ivan, who should be listening to the podcast?
What’s the game plan?

So we’re hoping that this will be exciting for the executives, the director level, regional managers, and the managers of the hospital in consolidation. We also think that it will be quite interesting for the veterinarians that are about to sell their practice and are searching for a good exit.

Fantastic. Well, I know we’re going to do some great episodes each week. We’ve got a great slate of guests set up. We’re going to start out first by talking a little bit about our different methodology, and we’re going to sprinkle in some episodes throughout the way, talking about how we look at the businesses and inviting some really unique people from not only the veterinary world but from all different brands.
