This event has been approved for 1.5 ACHE Virtual Interactive Education credits

Date: Friday, August 30
Time: 12-1:30pm

In today’s competitive healthcare marketplace, a strategy for offering your products and services in a way that will outdistance your competitors, and emerging disruptors, is critical. However, in concert with defining the marketing strategy you must also have a well-defined methodology for implementation that contains a relevant and consistent message. Further, it is of little value to have a strategy and a message without the resources or the expertise to implement them. A well-conceived marketing plan that is in concert with your strategic plan and the time and resources to put it in motion are the necessary elements to increase market share and support financial success. Of those many factors, some are more important than others. Because each strategy must address some unique considerations, it is not reasonable to identify ‘every’ important factor at a generic level. However, many are common to all marketing strategies. Join this session to learn more about the role of strategic marketing in winning the battle for markets and share.
