A Guide to the Healthcare Marketing Ecosystem
Instruction Level: Intermediate
Many healthcare companies know the marketing basics: build a website, use social media, print ads, and maybe launch some adwords campaigns. But, marketing strategies like patient engagement, retargeting, NAP consistency, thought-leadership, and reputation management get thrown into the “nice-to-have” bucket, which means they rarely receive the budgetary or resource allocation necessary to operationalize them properly. Often, that’s because healthcare leaders don’t have a full picture of the patient acquisition ecosystem and how all of these components fit together to build a fully functional patient acquisition system.
This presentation will use simple infographics to help attendees visualize the interactivity of the marketing components that make up a sophisticated and effective marketing machine. In addition to discussing patient acquisition, we’ll stress the importance of patient relationship management (PRM) platforms that kick in after you acquire a patient and the critical data they feed back into the ecosystem, helping to convert more patients in the future.
- Identify the core components of an effective marketing strategy designed to drive new patient volume.
- Assess existing marketing platforms and assets for improvement opportunities.
- Devise a marketing plan that incorporates critical elements like PRMs and reputation management.
