Last call for healthcare marketers

Last ChanceDo you have a healthcare marketing success story? Are you willing to share how your well your health system is doing when it comes to digital marketing? Here are two last chance opportunities for marketers to contribute to the growing body of knowledge about new and emerging practices in the healthcare marketing field.

But act fast! Tomorrow – September 11 – is the deadline for both.

Participate in a survey, then kick back at Starbucks.

My friends at Klein & Partners and Greystone.net are conducting a market research study on the state of digital marketing in healthcare. Healthcare marketers who take the 10 to 12 minute survey will receive a $10 Starbucks gift card. That’s enough for a Salted Caramel Mocha and a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Participants will also receive a report of the survey results.

Submit a proposal to speak at the Forum’s annual conference.

Last call to submit a speaker’s proposal for the 21st Annual Healthcare Marketing & Physician Strategies Summit, which will be held May 23 – 25, 2016 in Chicago. This meeting always attracts an impressive group of healthcare leaders seeking to learn, but also to share, innovations and best practices in marketing, strategy and physician relations.

You can learn more about the conference and submit your proposal online at the Forum for Healthcare Strategists website.

Gombeski, Jr., Director of Strategic Marketing, UK HealthCare; and me at 11:30 am CST on a January 22, 2015 webinar for an examination of key consumer perspectives revealed through Klein & Partners’ latest “kitchen sink” research.  The survey asks Americans a variety of questions about different healthcare topics – from their opinions about the Affordable Care Act to use of retail health clinics.  We’ll talk about the findings and explore the implications for healthcare marketers.

Evidence-based Healthcare Marketing Webinar Rescheduled

One of our healthcare marketing panelists has been called for jury duty during the week this program was originally scheduled.  See the new date and time, session description and link for registration below.

Evidence-based Marketing:  Rethinking Measurement
New Date and Time:  August 21, 2014 – 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. EDT

Healthcare marketers face increasing pressure to make the most of their marketing investments.  The C-suite wants accountability for outcomes – volume, revenue, greater customer loyalty – and assurance that the health system is strengthening its competitive position.

The bottom line is that marketing is becoming more science than art.  Today, sophisticated tools and marketing analytics provide great insights into customer needs, values, drivers and behaviors.  They inform our decision-making, shape strategy, focus investments.  When actionable information is combined with rigorous planning, innovative ideas and disciplined tracking, marketing executives quickly close the accountability gap.

Welcome to evidence-based marketing.

On August 21, 2014, I’ll join Marian Dezelan, Chief Marketing Officer, and Chris Boyer, AVP Digital Marketing Strategy, for North Shore–LIJ Health System (Great Neck, NY) on a webinar to discuss how an evidence-based approach to healthcare marketing can better focus your strategy and produce measureable results.  Marian and Chris will share how North Shore-LIJ’s marketing department applies evidence-based marketing techniques for personalized targeted marketing, patient engagement and making the most of marketing data.

Sponsored by the Forum for Healthcare Strategists, the webinar is scheduled from 12:30 am to 2:00 pm EDT.  The session is complimentary for Forum members; non-members can participate for $125.

I hope you’ll join us.  In fact, gather your team, order in lunch and make time to learn together.

  • Integrating brand journalism into your healthcare marketing strategy… and why you should!

Positioning for population health management: the healthcare marketer’s challenge

Population HealthWith the implementation of the accountable care act, and the creation of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), patient-centered medical homes, and other new delivery models, healthcare marketers face new challenges.

  • How do you position your organization for population health management?
  • How do you present the organization as a credible and valuable partner for wellness coaching and behavioral change?
  • How do you communicate the benefits of new delivery models to consumers, and drive choice to your network?

My friends at BVK (Milwaukee) recently conducted a national research study conducted to explore consumer attitudes about wellness, prevention, population health management and accountable care, and to gain insights that will help healthcare marketers position and market these services.

Joel English, managing director at BVK, will be presenting highlights from this study on a Forum for Healthcare Strategists Webinar that I’ll be moderating on Wednesday, June 26 at  11:30 a.m. CDT.  We’ll be joined by Jeff Cowart, former SVP for growth and sales at Baptist Health System in San Antonio (Jeff recently joined the Barlow/McCarthy team).  He’ll address how Baptist Health, Detroit Medical Center and Abrazo Health (Phoenix) are tackling the critical strategic and marketing issues involved in a population health strategy, and the unique approaches they are taking to market their ACOs.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about the opportunities and challenges for healthcare marketers in positioning health systems for success in the new world of accountable care.  I hope you will join us.
