Webinar: Veterinary Pricing Trends, Insights, and Perspectives

Veterinary Pricing Trends, Insights, and Perspectives


Join us for a webinar on Sep 22, 2015 at 7:00 PM EDT.

Please join Dr. Carol McConnell as she presents on the “Nationwide / Purdue Veterinary Price Index.” In partnership with the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University, Nationwide, formerly known as VPI, has analyzed millions of veterinary claim submissions over a six year period, resulting in a fact based presentation of veterinary pricing trends.

Nationwide (VPI) data is based on pet insurance claims – the bottom line amounts that consumers actually pay. This is similar to the difference between the sticker price of a new car versus the amount a consumer actually pays. Join us to learn about veterinary cost of care trends; the information is quite interesting and surprising.

Carol McConnell, DVM, MBA is Vice President and Chief Veterinary Officer at Nationwide. In this role, she oversees the company’s veterinary research and relations. Her prior roles have included positions at ALZA Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, and Priority Veterinary Management Consultants, where she provided consulting services to veterinarians around the country.
Dr. McConnell was a practicing veterinarian at Wilmington Animal Hospital in Delaware. She holds a BS from Cornell University, an MBA from Purdue University and a DVM degree from UC Davis.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
