Grow Your Health System Brand

Connect with Physicians to
Build Loyalty and Increase Referrals

Email is the most effective way to engage with physicians, inside your system and across the medical community

Physician loyalty is essential in today’s competitive, value-based healthcare landscape.

Health systems aim to provide an expanded choice of physicians and services under one roof. But broad consumer options and the ubiquity of urgent care facilities pose stiff competition for growing institutions. Since physicians play a critical role in increasing case volume, developing strong hospital-physician relationships is imperative. Email provides a targeted, efficient way to reinforce your brand.

  • Major institutions are currently experiencing double digit referral leakage. Yet many struggle to identify the worst offenders, let alone address the problem in a timely and consistent manner.
  • Physician liaisons can’t possibly engage with every physician in your system in a meaningful way. When you rely exclusively on liaisons, you may miss opportunities to continually communicate your hospital’s value to potential referrers, both within and outside your system.
  • Community email newsletters are successful, but hospital marketers haven’t maximized email’s capabilities for building relationships with physicians. There’s not much information available on best practices for health systems, and little data on email ROI.
