Adapting Your Business to a Changing Healthcare Environment
1 hour Audio and Power Point Presentation
Recorded September 26, 2015
Patients today are engaging much more in their healthcare experience and care. Healthcare is moving from the Paternalistic Model of care to a Facilitative Model of care where the patient expects to be educated, informed and most importantly involved. All businesses know that it is much easier to "hold onto" customers (patients) rather than trying to attract new ones. This presentation will focus not only on meeting the expectations of future patients but advancing this opportunity as a benefit for your practice. This presentation will touch upon general marketing approaches, social media and technology.
- Recognize the shift from "consumer" to "customer" (patient) and differentiate the two concepts.
- Realize the shift in patient engagement
- Describe how the current changes in healthcare are changing patient expectations
- Explain how branding may impact healthcare perceptions and utilization in the future
- Recognize the value of internal data for analytics purposes
