PRLog - Jan. 15, 2013 - LA QUINTA, Calif. -- La Quinta, CA: The healthcare industry undoubtedly is one of the most dynamic industries around. Healthcare studies, treatment therapies or administrative work, every New Year brings in numerous changes. Considering the dynamic nature of the industry, the marketing tactics also need to go hand in hand. The HealthCare Marketing Group (http://healthcaremarketinggroup.com)
The HealthCare Marketing Group has always believed that marketing plans should inherently depend on the services being offered. For instance, physicians and practitioners have already started using free video calling software like
Skype to communicate with long distance patients. Administrative changes include the use of software to store all of a patient’s information online or on local servers. It is this technological advancement that healthcare marketing needs to focus on, Catherine Martin of The HealthCare Marketing Group states.
Based on its extensive healthcare marketing related experience, The HealthCare Marketing Group advises healthcare professionals and companies to focus on these emerging trends -
• Social networking (http://healthcaremarketinggroup.com/
or associating with social media sites that are dedicated to illnesses, treatments and health is a great idea in 2013.
• Instant access to healthcare is an important trend in 2013. One great way to reach people today is through their smartphones. Statistics suggest that every fifth American uses a smartphone now. HCMG’s healthcare marketing predictions for 2013 thus decree that smartphones should be included in the marketing plans! There are plenty of applications that are available via smartphones that allow patients to correspond with doctors, nurses and other medical practitioners with a moment’s notice. Patients will soon be able to get all their medical questions answered through apps, set appointments and even pay their bills from a centralized app! However, medical professionals have to collaborate with app developers to bring their healthcare marketing plan to the next level in 2013.
The world of healthcare is changing fast and if you do not keep up, you will be left behind. Get ahead of your competitors by making 2013 ‘your’ year!
