Veterinary hospitals are typically short-staffed; if a veterinarian or technician gets sick and has to miss work, they may not be able to replace them. These shortages can lead to overwork and burnout, but what if someone from outside of the hospital could lend a hand?

This week on the Veterinary Innovation Podcast, Shawn and Ivan are joined by Lisa Hu, the Co-Founder and CEO of Roo, to talk about locum work, how veterinarians and technicians can take advantage to work as much or as little as they want, and how working at multiple hospitals can be advantageous before signing a contract.
Ms. Hu recommends Platform Revolution: How Networked Markets are Transforming the Economy and How to Make Them Work for You by Geoffrey G. Parker, Marshall W. Van Alstyne & Sangeet Paul Choudary.
