Are you using CRM to boost returns on healthcare marketing investments?

CRM_Conference_Promo_Image

Corrigan Partners has teamed up with our colleagues from Greystone.Net to host a Healthcare MarTech workshop on CRM as an essential tool for healthcare marketing. The one and a half day program – Customer Relationship Management: Making the Most of Your CRM Investment – will be held September 29 & 30, 2015 at the Catalyst Ranch in Chicago, Illinois.

The Bottom Line is . . . CRM is Good for the Bottom Line

Customer Relationship Management (CRM) is a game-changing technology with the potential to transform healthcare marketing. With CRM you can more effectively focus marketing investments on the right customers, lower the expense of patient acquisition and retention, create loyal brand advocates and track return on investment. Yet, many healthcare organizations have struggled to make it work. This workshop is designed to address the decisions, capabilities and resources required to make CRM successful.

A Deep-Dive, Open Dialogue on CRM Successes and Lessons Learned

Whether you are thinking about purchasing a CRM system for the first time, want to select a new vendor, are muddled in the throes of implementation or aren’t getting the results you hoped for, this workshop is for you. Participants will engage in educational sessions, facilitated discussions and open dialogue on:

How do I craft a vision and strategy for CRM in my health system?
How do I pick the right CRM solution and vendor?
What changes will I have to make in the marketing department?
How can I ensure we’re getting the most out of our CRM system?
How do I get my CRM strategy back on track?
What can I learn about CRM from other industries?
And much more . . .

Workshop Faculty and Participants

Healthcare marketing executives from around the country will join the Corrigan Partners and Greystone.Net faculty to share their CRM journeys, providing insights into the trials and successes of their CRM programs.

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.

The contributions of the nominated organizations and individuals to the industry must be extraordinary and far exceed what might be generally expected or accepted.  Candidates selected by the Board of Judges will be individuals or organizations that clearly standout from the mainstream, and whose work and accomplishments distinguish them from others working in the same field.

The Healthcare Internet Hall of Fame was established in 2011 to honor men, women and organizations that have made outstanding, long-lasting contributions to the healthcare Internet industry. The organization’s purpose, while honoring innovation, is to ensure that the “history” of the industry is preserved for future generations new to the healthcare industry.
