More Than a Billboard: What You Need to Know About Today's Patient Experience

It’s no secret that healthcare marketing is more than a billboard or a tagline. It’s about delivering an experience that exceeds patient and caregiver expectations—and translates into positive word of mouth and defines your brand. The first step toward doing so is understanding the current experience.

For healthcare consumers, there’s nothing scarier than a health crisis that affects a loved one. For the caregivers, the next steps are often clouded by fear and confusion. Even for those who work within the healthcare system, navigating care can seem daunting.

In this webinar, you’ll hear from two seasoned healthcare executives who learned how clear content and a strong community can help light the way. Ahava Leibtag, with 20 years of healthcare content marketing experience, saw firsthand how important content is when navigating her daughter’s health crisis. And, Dean Browell’s experience in social listening and behavior guided him to communities for support as he lived the caregiver’s experience with his daughter.

Join Ahava and Dean in a candid conversation as they share their personal experiences and discuss practical ways you can help caregivers navigate their new realities.

Improving SEO & Patient Acquisition with a Headless CMS

Sponsored by

Yext logo

Nationwide, consumers have a rapidly growing number of healthcare options from which to choose. And, with ever increasing patient expectations, that’s good! But it also presents a challenge for healthcare organizations: how to better understand, and exceed, patient and consumer expectations across their journey.

Flexible technology would be the obvious solution. But the truth is that not all tech stacks are built with a cohesive consumer experience in mind—and providers and payers can’t rely on legacy platforms to get the job done.

Join Matt Klawitter, Senior Digital Access Strategist at Beacon Health, and Carrie Liken, Head of Industry for Healthcare at Yext, to hear how Beacon Health used a technology-first approach to create frictionless experiences for consumers. Instead of relying on monolithic technology, Beacon leaned into the concept of a headless CMS approach to find success in everything from improved SEO to increased appointments. Learn how they connected platforms, content, provider data, and appointment scheduling capabilities to enhance patient experiences, increase satisfaction, and ultimately drive appointments.

Vaccines Are Here: Three Communication Imperatives for Healthcare Organizations

Jarrard Phillips Cate & Hancock

The moment has arrived. With worldwide hope focused on a COVID vaccine, two vaccines … Moderna and Pfizer … await emergency use authorization from the FDA. Indeed, doses of COVID vaccines will likely be distributed throughout the country within weeks.

Now, the communication challenges begin. For those in healthcare organizations, that means laying the groundwork with the media, the public, and employees regarding distrust, distribution, healthcare inequities, and logistical hurdles.

Laying that groundwork rests on three key communication imperatives:

• Getting the talk right internally
• Serving as the voice of authority in each community
• Preparing for the pitfalls

The Forum for Healthcare Strategists joins Jarrard Phillips Cate & Hancock in a conversation that will unpack each of these imperatives and provide clear actions that healthcare leaders can take today. Examine how to: help your employees feel comfortable receiving a vaccine, as well as to then advocate within their community; shape messages that will relieve anxiety while educating the public; prepare for media scrutiny; and respond to negative events like vaccine side effects (real and perceived).

Hear insights from your colleagues to help you connect the communication principles discussed with real-world scenarios.
