Health systems across the country are investing in new ways to tap into the growing trend of consumers searching for providers online, but with so much competition, how can you stand out? Many health systems have focused recent efforts on getting their providers listed in third party marketplaces—websites that feature providers from various places—at the expense of investing sufficiently in their own sites. Doing so has helped them keep up with the competition to a degree, but not break away from it.

Prior to becoming Chief Digital Officer at Providence St. Joseph Health (PSJH), Aaron Martin spent 10 years in leadership roles at Amazon. He brings a fresh perspective to healthcare and his role leading digital, mobile, and online marketing at PSJH. Co-presenting with Aaron is Shweta Ponnappa, Sr. Director of Digital Marketing. In this webinar, Aaron and Shweta share key online initiatives PSJH has undertaken as well as insights on building your health system’s brand while expanding your online presence.

You will learn:
  • Why investing in your own website is critical to patient acquisition & retention
  • How to align & manage your brand across third party sites & your own site
  • Tips for attracting & converting patients using best practices from other industries
