[Webinar] Decoding The Digital Physician: Separating Fact From Fiction

Sarah B. Brown, Director of Marketing

Capturing the attention of your physician audience is no easy feat, especially with digital communication increasing every day. It’s difficult to cut through this noise to deliver your message. The best way to reach your audience is to understand their needs – and tailor your outreach to those needs. Today, more than ever, physician-level data is critical to effectively reach and engage your targets.

In our next webinar on July 17, Edith Hodkinson, Chief of Digital Strategy, will unravel some notions about the “digital physician” to demonstrate why it’s so important for marketers to separate fact from fiction when strategizing ways to communicate with and engage healthcare professionals. In preparation for the webinar, I sat down with Edith to explore some of the topics she’ll be discussing.

Putting Actionable Insights Into Motion For Improved Physician Recruiting

Lisa Killion

When you go to a five-star restaurant, it’s usually the chef’s culinary expertise that makes the experience truly memorable. For hospitals, having the best physicians on staff is also essential to serving up excellent care.

In today’s competitive landscape, the more information healthcare staffers have about physicians seeking job opportunities, the more proactive they can be in attracting the most talented doctors to their teams. Traditional web analytics only provide aggregate data—no specifics—leaving viable leads to turn cold. DMD’s Audience Identity ManagerSM (AIM) platform can provide an important advantage.

Using Identity Data To Drive Your Healthcare Staffing Efforts

Lisa Killion

Holiday shopping can be a weary process. Think of how much easier it would be if you could view, in real time—like a fly on the wall, the items your family members were browsing online for their own wish lists? 

That's something healthcare staffing professionals have been asking of Santa for years—to be able to identify, on an individual level, the physicians currently viewing online job posts even if they do not complete an application or set up a profile. Thankfully, the jolly ol' fellow has come through.

Aggregate Data Is Not Enough: The Case For Individual-Level Physician Data

Dale Benner, Senior Director, Product Management

When you go out to dinner with friends, chances are you don’t all order the same meal or request your food to be prepared the same way. Most restaurants try to accommodate individual preferences. Pharma marketers also need to go to the same lengths to serve up content tailored to meet their physician’s specific tastes.

This requires capturing data on an individual level so you can begin to know your physicians and what they care about. Such insights can be the difference between marketing success and failure.

[Video] AIM: Identifying Your Website Traffic

Dale Benner, Senior Director, Product Management

The headline on the Google Analytics website overview page states “Get to know your customers.” It’s not a false statement. GA and other data platforms do give you tools to better understand your website traffic. It’s a valuable resource.

Yet, as insightful as this information is on a broad level, it still leaves much to be desired in terms of individual data. Who is your website visitor, exactly?

AIM Topic: Expand Insights Beyond Your Target Physician List

Dale Benner, Senior Director, Product Management

We’ve had some exciting news surrounding our Audience Identity ManagerSM (AIM) platform as of late, and now, we’re introducing a new sub-product to the overall AIM suite of products: AIM Topic.

AIM Topic is similar to AIM Journey, in that it reports the types of sites healthcare professionals visit and the topics they investigate, including disease categories, specific disease states (and sub-states), and approximately five thousand keywords. But, instead of following the online activity of individual, pre-selected HCPs, AIM Topic identifies the HCPs for you based on the disease and topics you select.

AIM Joins DMD’s Email In BPA Worldwide Certification

Dale Benner, Senior Director, Product Management

Nothing is certain in this world except for death and taxes, according to Benjamin Franklin. If we’ve reached a third “certainty”, it’s arguably technology’s constant evolution—something Greg Satell speaks about in his recent Harvard Business Review article. This evolution requires ongoing adaptation, not only from consumers but also those who innovate—if they wish to remain competitive.

Unfortunately, due to the speed at which technology reinvents itself, innovation isn’t always rooted in compliance. A company’s shortcuts puts clients at risk. On the other hand, a company’s fierce devotion to hold itself responsible—and pass the resulting compliance along to its clients—is what makes one an industry leader. With our patent-pending Audience Identity MangerSM (AIM) technology recently receiving certification for its conformance to the BPA Worldwide standards for audience qualification and IAB Data Best Practices, we are leading the charge in responsible digital marketing.
